Wisniewski, who turns 30 years old later this week, hit the open market after the Eagles declined his option earlier this month. Although he wasn’t a full-time starter in 2018, Wisniewski has already generated a market. In addition to the Giants, both the Jets and Vikings have expressed interest in the veteran offensive lineman.
New York has already made an effort to improve its offensive line this season, acquiring right guard Kevin Zeitler from the Browns as part of the Odell Beckham Jr. trade and handing restricted free agent Spencer Pulley a multi-year deal. With Zeitler, Will Hernandez, and Jon Halapio set to start on the interior of the Giants’ front five, and Pulley in reserve, New York doesn’t have an obvious slot for Wisniewski.
Wisniewski was benched by the Eagles in Week 5 after a lackluster performance at left guard. Although he hasn’t played center since the 2015 campaign, it was Wisniewski’s primary position from 2011-15 when he made 77 starts for the Raiders, so he can be a backup at all three interior line positions.
