Posted February 27, 2013 on AP on Fox
The New York Giants have agreed to a five-year deal with left tackle Will Beatty, who could have become a free agent. The deal gives the Giants some continuity on the offensive line. Beatty is entering his fifth season with the Giants. He played in all 16 games last season after missing much of training camp with a sore back. Beatty was a second-round pick in 2009 from Connecticut. He has played in 50 games with the Giants. He's made four starts at left tackle, four at right tackle and one as an extra tight end. He missed the Giants' Super Bowl championship during the 2011 season, when he had a detached retina that required surgery and sidelined him for the last part of the regular season and the playoffs.
