Giants '13 free agent list

Happy New Year! It's 2013 and the New York Giants can officially start looking forward to this upcoming season.

GM Jerry Reese believes the Giants still have a championship contending core but he also promises that the roster will look slightly different next season.

Here is the unofficial Giants' unrestricted/restricted/exclusive rights free agent list:


T Will Beatty -- Hard to find starting left tackles. Might be most important Giants free agent.

DE Osi Umenyiora -- Won't rule out return but sounds ready to move on.

G Kevin Boothe -- Versatile and solid. Giants should bring him back.

TE Martellus Bennett -- Should only get better but will another team offer more money?

S Kenny Phillips -- Would like to see him back but for right price.

LB Chase Blackburn -- Solid vet is an asset but is NYG ready to go with Mark Herzlich?

LB Keith Rivers -- When healthy, showed glimpses of speed and athleticism.

K Lawrence Tynes -- Best NFL kicker until shaky finish. Should still be re-signed.

DT Rocky Bernard -- Cheap and reliable but Marvin Austin needs snaps.

WR Domenik Hixon -- Solid veteran provides depth and a punt returner.

WR Ramses Barden -- Shined in start vs. CAR but didn't get many other opportunities.

QB David Carr -- Knows system and works well with Eli.

TE Travis Beckum -- Injuries hampered Giants career.

T Sean Locklear -- Great until suffering ugly knee injury.

CB Justin Tryon -- Invite to camp?

RB Kregg Lumpkin -- Saw some third-down duties.

DT Shaun Rogers -- Blood clot kept him out of '12.

CB Brian Witherspoon -- Has to come back from another ACL tear.


WR Victor Cruz -- Time to pay the salsa.

S Stevie Brown -- The surprise of 2012 could be starting safety next season.

RB Andre Brown -- On the mend after broken leg derailed best season.

TE Bear Pascoe -- Versatile and needed for blocking.

RB Ryan Torain -- Didn't play much.


DE Adrian Tracy -- 'Yosi' (Young Osi) might see bigger role.

C Jim Cordle -- Good for depth/special teams.

DE Justin Trattou -- Giants like his potential.
