New York Giants

The New York Giants released three players on Wednesday, cutting ties with linebacker Jon Beason, and offensive linemen Will Beatty and Geoff Schwartz. 

The winds of change are blowing strongly in East Rutherford, as the New York Giants have released veteran linebacker Jon Beason, tackle Will Beatty, and guard Geoff Schwartz.

The move seemed part financially motivated, as the team should save around $12 million in cap space.

The move also seemed motivated by the Giants need to get younger and healthier. Beason played just 5 games last season, Beatty missed all of 2015 with injury, while Schwartz played just 13 games over the past 2 years.

The Giants have did not approach any of the three veterans about taking a pay cut, either.

The moves are some of the first of what’s sure to be a busy offseason for GM Jerry Reese and the Big Blue front office.
