Jets signed G/T James Brewer, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.

The former fourth-round pick never amounted to anything with the Giants, making just eight starts when several players in front of him got hurt. He'll compete for a job as a versatile reserve for Gang Green.

Free agent G/T James Brewer is visiting the Jets on Wednesday.

After playing 443 snaps at three different positions for the Giants in 2013, Brewer only played in two games last season. Though Brewer is capable of playing both guard and tackle, six of his eight career starts have come at left guard.

Giants placed G/T James Brewer (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

On the roster bubble in the summer, Brewer appeared in just two games this season, playing 53 snaps. An impending free agent, Brewer appears highly unlikely to be back with the G-Men.

Giants fourth-year T/G James Brewer may be on the outside looking in at a 53-man roster spot.

Brewer was the 117th pick in the 2011 draft and stands 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds with vine-like 36-inch arms. He appeared in 14 games last season, participating on 443 offensive snaps at left guard, right guard, and right tackle. In five starts at left guard, Brewer was exposed as a pass protector. Brewer might have the edge for a roster spot if the Giants decide to keep ten linemen.

James Brewer is expected to compete for the Giants' starting right tackle job next season.

With David Diehl likely to be released and Will Beatty set to become a free agent, Brewer will be in the mix for a starting role. He appeared in just eight games over his first two seasons, but is a bit of an athletic freak as a former high school basketball star who goes 6-foot-6, 320 with nearly 36-inch arms.

Giants OT James Brewer is expected to have a bigger role in 2012 following the departure of Kareem McKenzie.

Brewer ''redshirted'' his rookie season, but has the size to develop into a starting right tackle. Moving veteran David Diehl from his natural guard position is also an option. Former Colts' castoff Tony Ugoh could be brought back to provide insurance.

The Giants have no plans to use No. 117 overall pick James Brewer as a rookie, according to scouting director Marc Ross.

Brewer was a fourth-round value, but the G-Men view him as a project. "He will come in and learn and develop and won’t get thrown into the fire," Ross said. "It’s a perfect situation for him." Brewer is a size-athleticism freak, but didn't begin playing football until his senior year in high school. In five years at Indiana -- including a redshirt -- he only started 21 games.

Giants selected Indiana OT James Brewer with the No. 117 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Rodger Saffold's bookend in Bloomington, Brewer is a former basketball player at 6-foot-6, 323 with ridiculous 35 3/8-inch arms. A favorite of ex-scout Dave Razzano and NFL Network's Mike Mayock, Brewer is a high-upside developmental project for OL coach Pat Flaherty. We like the value here.

Former NFL scout Dave Razzano calls Indiana OT James Brewer a "name to remember" late in the first round.

"This former basketball player is a bit off the radar," concedes Razzano. "But, believe me, scouts and offensive line coaches know all about this guy." Razzano calls Brewer an "instant starter" at right tackle. We'd still be surprised if he went higher than the second round.
