Former Chief Geoff Schwartz reportedly released by the Giants

New, comments

Geoff Schwartz followed up a solid season with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 with a multi-year contract with the New York Giants the following season. Two years into that deal, the Giants have reportedly cut Schwartz after he played in just 13 games over the last two seasons. This according to a report from ESPN's Dan Graziano.

The problem in New York appeared to be the injury bug where Schwartz played just 13 games over two seasons. However, Chiefs fans remember an offensive lineman that turned out to be a great signing during the team's 2013 season. Offensive line play seems to be at a premium these days so I suspect Schwartz will have interest from others (assuming he's healthy, which he says he is).

The Chiefs have plenty of questions at guard but also plenty of bodies. Jeff Allen is scheduled to be a free agent. Ben Grubbs ended on IR with a neck injury last season so we're not sure what his status is. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Zach Fulton are younger players that have started games for KC but also been replaced at one time or another.

I'd be curious if the Chiefs would be interested in him again. The money would have to be right, of course. The Giants cut him in order to save roughly $3 million against the cap but I don't have a sense of what the market would be.

Mitchell, the other Schwartz brother, would be a good one but he's out of the Chiefs price range.
