New York Giants Re-Sign LT Will Beatty

Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star Ledger broke  the details on Twitter:

Jenny also has a great breakdown on about thecash flows of the contract well worth the read.

Based on the report, Beatty’s base contract will carry an APY of $7.5 million which will rank 7th in the NFL among veteran Left Tackles (8th if you include Doug Free of the Cowboys. Where Beatty really wins is in his reported $19.5 million of fully guaranteed money which represents $50.67% of the entire base contract. Of those only Andrew Whitworth of the Bengals, who signed a 2 year extension that doesnt kick in until down the line, makes more than Beatty in that metric. Free also earned slightly more with $53.1% of his deal guaranteed. Among long term contracts. The guarantee per year of $3.8 million ranks 5th among veteran left tackles. 64% of the money will be earned in the first three years of the contract.

We will update Beatty’s status as more details become known, but on its face it looks like a good deal for both sides. In the meantime here is the overview of the Left Tackle market.


  • Beatty’s Agents at SportStars negotiated a tremendous deal for their client who lacks a track record due to injuries. Hard to believe Beatty was the Swing Tackle in the Giants week 1 matchup vs. Dallas. Jerry Reese must believe Beatty’s best football is ahead of him. Does working this deal out during the 2012 League Year have any ramifications on the cap?

    • 2012 books are all closed. All this does is keep another team from jumping into the mix. My guess is they based alot of the deal off the Free contract in Dallas.
