It appears Shawn Andrews’ short tenure with the Giants is over, according to Andrews’ twitter account. Andrews actually played well at times as an extra TE in the jumbo package, and also in relief of David Diehl at LT. But as has been the pattern in his NFL career, Andrews could not be relied upon to consistently stay on the field. He was on the hook for $7 million this season, and there was no way the Giants were paying that. It appears the Giants tried to get the Big Kid to take a pay cut, but could not come to an agreement.
Andrews is now the 3rd offensive lineman to part ways with the Giants today, joining Shaun O’Hara and Rich Seubert. The Giants are facing major upheaval along their OL. I’ll be very interested to see what kind of plan Jerry Reese has to replace these guys. It could be a disaster.
In related news, word is that the Giants have reached an agreement with Kevin Boothe. Woohooooo!
