WEDNESDAY, 1:40pm: Schwartz has signed his four-year deal with the Giants, and it will be worth $16.8MM, with $6.2MM in guaranteed money, his agent tells Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports (Twitter link).
TUESDAY, 4:12pm: The Giants are set to sign guard Geoff Schwartz tomorrow, according to Kim Jones of WFAN (on Twitter). We learned earlier today that Big Blue was interested in the former Chiefs guard.
The 27-year-old moved into the starting lineup at right guard for Kansas City late in the season. The Chiefs will have to work diligently to make sure their offensive line is solid in 2014. In addition to Schwartz, KC’s other primary right guard, Jon Asamoah, is also on the verge of hitting unrestricted free agency.
Schwartz was a seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2008 and made enough of a mark there to see time in all 16 games during his rookie season, including three starts. In his sophomore campaign, he started all 16 games at right guard. He went a couple of years without another start until this past season with KC.
