Giants release OG Geoff Schwartz, OT Will Beatty

Wednesday February 10th, 2016

The New York Giants have released offensive tackle Will Beatty and offensive guard Geoff Schwartz, the Giants announced Wednesday. 

The team also announced that linebacker Jon Beason has decided to retire. 

ESPN's Dan Graziano was first to report the news. 

All three players saw limited or no play time in 2015 while dealing with injuries.

Schwartz, 30, made the most appearances out of the group, making 11 starts at guard. His season was cut short after suffering a lower leg fracture in late November.

Beatty, 30, failed to play a game this season after sustaining a torn pectoral while weight lifting in May. He later suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery.

Beason, 31, played in five games last season, and hasn’t played a full 16-game season since 2010. 

The Giants will save about $13 million in cap space after making these roster moves.
