Giants signed OT Will Beatty to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.
Beatty made the free agent rounds, but couldn't find a new home. He'll likely begin the year as the Giants' swing tackle, but could put immediate pressure on RT Marshall Newhouse. If the G-Men grow uncomfortable with Ereck Flowers on the blindside, Flowers could be shifted to the right with Newhouse headed to the bench. Aug 30 - 2:26 PM

The Eagles have "reached out" to free agent LT Will Beatty.

Beatty's free agent market has picked up in recent days. He had a workout with the Jaguars on Friday and is mulling a contract offer. The Eagles have also checked in on Beatty, who sat out all of last season with a torn pectoral. Philadelphia is looking for insurance at tackle with Lane Johnson expected to serve a 10-game suspension. The ex-Giant should have a new home in the next few days.

Free agent LT Will Beatty worked out for the Jaguars on Friday.

According to Newsday's Tom Rock, the Jaguars offered Beatty a contract and are awaiting word as he "mulls the offer." Beatty tore his pec in May 2015 and missed all of last season. He's finally healthy. Beatty would provide loads of starting experience and compete for the swing-tackle job.
Aug 13 - 8:08 PM reports the Giants' "bridge" with free agent OT Will Beatty is "pretty much burned."

Per reporter Jordan Raanan, Beatty would "only return if he had no other options." On the other side of the coin, Raanan reports the Giants are concerned by "what they perceived as a lack of desire." The G-Men need help/depth opposite LT Ereck Flowers, but aren't treating it as an urgent matter. Beatty has made no known visits in free agency since his February release.

Free agent OT Will Beatty declined workouts with the Broncos and Raiders earlier this offseason because he was not fully recovered from shoulder surgery.

Beatty underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in November. "I don’t want to show them an injured Will," Beatty said. "I don’t want to visit a team and say ‘It’ll get better.’ I want to be good and ready to go. I want to say ‘I’m ready and I can be your guy.’" It explains why Beatty has not made any waves to this point in free agency. The Broncos and Raiders have already made their moves on the offensive line, but the veteran tackle should garner interest once he is ready.

Giants released LT Will Beatty.

The Giants are starting to purge the roster of overpaid veterans. Beatty joins RG Geoff Schwartz and MLB Jon Beason on the street, as all three were cut Wednesday morning. Beatty missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a torn pectoral last May. He also underwent rotator cuff surgery toward the end of the year. Beatty will turn 31 next month. The Giants save $4.175 million with the move and will surge forward with Ereck Flowers on Eli Manning's blind side.
Feb 10 - 11:47 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes the team will "part ways" with veteran LT Will Beatty.

Beatty is owed a $6.625 million base salary and is set to count $9.175 million against the cap. Both numbers would be fine for a left tackle, but it appears the Giants will move forward with 2015 first-rounder Ereck Flowers on the left side. That likely means Beatty will have to accept both a pay cut and a demotion to right tackle if he wants to stay in New York. It is unlikely he wants to do either.

Giants LT Will Beatty (PUP) will undergo rotator cuff surgery and is done for the season.

Beatty started the season on the PUP after tearing his pectoral lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but the Giants had been hesitant to activate him. This news explains why. With Beatty done for the year, rookie Ereck Flowers will continue to man the left tackle spot with Marshall Newhouse on the right side. Beatty is owed $6.675 million in salary and bonuses next season with a cap hit of $9.175 million. With Flowers set to man the left side for the foreseeable future, it would not be shocking if the Giants moved on.

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are unlikely to activate LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) before Thursday's deadline.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but coach Tom Coughlin appeared unsure if Beatty would be able to contribute this season during an interview earlier in the week. If Beatty is not activated by 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, he will revert to season-ending injured reserve. The Giants will move forward with rookie Ereck Flowers at left tackle and Marshall Newhouse on the right side if Beatty is not activated.

Giants LT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) will resume practicing Wednesday.

It starts a 21-day window for the Giants to activate Beatty after he tore his pec working out in May. He should be back in the lineup sometime in the next couple weeks. Rookie LT Ereck Flowers has been obliterated in pass pro, but has proven to be a strong run blocker. Beatty could push him to right tackle.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 11:43:00 AM

The Giants remain unsure of when LT Will Beatty (pectoral, PUP) will resume practicing.

Beatty is eligible to come off the PUP list this week, but it sounds like he'll stay there at least another week or two. The Giants' offensive line got ripped apart in Monday's loss to the Eagles, giving renewed urgency to Beatty's return.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Giants OT Will Beatty (pec, PUP) could resume practicing this week.

Beatty is eligible to both practice and play this week. It is unclear what position Beatty will fill when he returns. Beatty has been a left tackle most of his career, but the Giants may not want to move rookie Ereck Flowers off the blindside. Beatty could take over for Marshall Newhouse, who has struggled at right tackle. Either way, Beatty's return should help solidify New York's offensive line.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 10:30:00 AM

Giants placed LT Will Beatty (torn pec) on the reserve/PUP list.

Beatty tore his pec lifting weights in May. He was given a five-to-six month timetable when the injury occurred, so he could be ready to come off the PUP when he is first eligible October 25 against the Cowboys. Rookie Ereck Flowers will start at left tackle while Beatty is sidelined.
