OL Rich Seubert played for the Giants for ten seasons.

The National Football League announced that 32 legendary NFL alumni, one representing each team, will announce live on Friday, April 26, second- and third-round Draft picks from Radio City Music Hall. This continues a successful program that began in 2011 in which each selection in the second round is announced by a former player.

The Giants will be represented by OL Rich Seubert, an undrafted free agent out of Western Illinois who played ten seasons for the Giants (2001-10) Seubert played both guard and center and was a member of one of the steadiest offensive lines in pro football.

Richie Seubert was back at Giants camp today to receive the BBI/Hope Johnson Giant of the Year award.

The man has heart. Anyone who has ever met him knows he can work a room, too. The Giants talked about cutting him last summer, but injuries led to them keeping him. He did what he always did: played where he was asked and didn't bitch about it. Plus, may we add, he blocked his man....Rich spoke with the pool today:

"This award does mean a lot, but the guys who are out here, my teammates, Eli, Coach Flats, Coach Jack, Coach Coughlin ? they?re the ones that get everything going. A guy gets hurt, they have a guy ready to play the next position. Those are the guys that truly deserve the credit for making players who they are. I was just blessed to be a New York Giant for 10 years. It?s my life. It?s my family?s life. It?s been truly fun.

The New York Giants have started free agency off with a bang. They have began shedding cap, which has meant the release of many fan favorites such as Shaun O'Hara and Rich Seubert. But it is not yet time to panic. The Giants can still bring back players that have been released at a more affordable salary.

In the case of O'Hara and Seubert they are both returning from injuries they suffered last season. The team may not yet be ready to completely redo the offensive line and could see this as the perfect time to reduce their salaries. It would allow the team to keep both players at a cap friendly price while grooming younger players to replace them next season.

Shaun O'Hara, a former captain and spokesperson for the New York Giants will be released.

Coupled with the departure of fellow veteran O-Lineman Rich Seubert,this news signals a significant remodeling of an aging unit that at one time was the strongest in the league.

O'hara was a solid if not standout player during his time in New York, which started when he was signed as a free agent in 2004. Moving from G to C, The Hillsborough native helped both RB Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward rush for over 1,000 yards each during the 2008 campaign.

Remember back on Sunday when I told you to keep your eye on the Giants offensive line? Well, don't say I didn't tell you so.

Earlier, as mentioned here by GFB's Rich Resch, the Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo reported that?Rich Seubert has already been informed by the Giants that he'll be released this week.

Now, ESPN New York is reporting that center Shaun O'Hara has been told by the Giants that he will be released?as well.

According to Mike Garafolo of NJ.com, the Giants have informed Rich Seubert that he will be released. ?The left guard had reconstructive knee surgery last season, and was due to earn $2.25 million.

Garafolo says it is unclear whether or not the Giants intend to bring him back.

Seubert is the first cap casualty for the Giants, but he won't be the last. Hopefully he is brought back at a lower price. Seubert has been an absolute warrior for the Giants, and has come back from gruesome leg injuries before, so he should not be written off just yet.

Recently we looked at Pro Football Focus' system that graded the best and worst tackles in the league. ?Today, we examine their rankings of the best and worst guards and centers of 2010.

Chris Snee ranked as the #8 tackle, while Rich Seubert came in at #13.

Snee has been our best lineman for some time, but it's great to see Seubert recognized for his great play. ?2010 was probably his best year as a professional, as he was forced to move inside to center due to injury and made the transition seamlessly.

Seubert visited the Giants' trianing headquarters on Wednesday.  All reports have the big guy making it all the way back from major knee surgery. 

Who needs offensive lineman in the draft with guys like this around?

Before I unveil the top three (I know everyone is waiting with baited breath!), I'll give a nod to some guys who just missed the cut.

14. Lawrence Tynes

His kickoffs weren?t bad this year, and he nailed 83% of his field goal attempts. The general consensus among Giants fans was that they did not feel as nervous when he stepped on to the field as they had in previous seasons.

13. Devin Thomas

When Thomas was acquired, most everyone wrote him off as mediocre depth for a desperate Giants? receiving corps.? But the former second rounder gave the Giants? special teams coverage unit a boost reminiscent of David Tyree. Tynes and Thomas were just about the only members of the special teams unit that weren't total disasters.

Some readers asked us to voice our opinion on what we thought the Giants might do in the off-season. Right now, the financial landscape and structure is status quo (and the players would like to keep it that way) but the new CBA has yet to be negotiated. What that will look like is any one's guess.

I'm figuring the owners will get a few points of the revenue pie back from the players, but they are going to pay heavily for it. The players will ask for every concession possible to offset the loss of revenue.

According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk........

Center Shaun O'Hara has pulled out of the Pro Bowl since he will undergo surgery. O'Hara had ankle and foot injuries and played in just six games this season. Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kalil will take his roster spot on the NFC Pro Bowl team..

It is absolutely the right move here for O'Hara......knowing the kind of guy he is, there's no way he feels he's worthy of the spot after only playing in six games this year.? Plus, he's not physically up to it and needs to get his health issues in order before next season.

Several Giants Lineman Scheduled to Go Under the Knife This Winter

Let's get caught up with some injury news and happenings before the season gets too far in the rear view mirror, shall we....

The Giants have several players that will be needing off-season surgery. One of them is DE Osi Umenyiora, whose knee and hip kept him from practicing in full all year.

Four Giants - Shaun O'Hara, Chris Snee, Antrel Rolle, and Justin Tuck - are headed to the Pro Bowl. Snee was selected as the Giants' only starter, but on Wednesday he took time to support a teammate.

Rich Seubert has spent most of this season at center, replacing O'Hara who has played only six games this year due to injury.?O'Hara got the call. Seubert didn't. That upset Snee.

"He (Seubert)?may not care, but I care for him," Snee said about the Seubert snub. "It's absurd that he's not going."

Yesterday the Giants fielded only 2 offensive linemen in their normal slots. While Kareem McKenzie and Chris Snee stayed put on the right, the left saw Rich Seubert at C, David Diehl at LG, and Shawn Andrews debuting at LT.

The results speak for itself as New York stomped Seattle in a 41-7 rout. However, as mentioned earlier this evening, the victory had casualties. Both Diehl and Adam Koets (who spelled Seubert multiple times at C), suffered injuries. While the severity of the injuries are still unknown, the theme will likely be recurring in the near future.

Shaun O'Hara is not getting any younger or healthier. A Pro Bowler, team leader, and local product, O'hara has been a key member of the organization since arriving in 2005. Now, he is out indefinitely with a similar injury to the one that ended Strahan's 2006 campaign prematurely. It is not likely that the Giants will continue to pay out a Pro Bowler's salary in 2011 for an ailing player. Moving to the left, Seubert has enjoyed a resurgence so far this season. After experiencing a sharp drop off in his level of play last year, the longest tenured Giant has helped Ahmad Bradshaw become one of the top backs in the league. That said, he too is not getting any younger. Entering the NFL in 2001, Seubert missed a season in a half when he broke his leg during a 2003 showdown with Philadelphia. Seubert reentered the starting lineup in 2007 and has been a stalwart since.

All week we have heard speculation about the situation at C for the Giants. When it became apparent that Shaun O'hara would be forced to spectate, the odds on favorite to replace him was Adam Koets.

As most of you know, Koets replaced O'hara earlier this season for multiple games and despite some expected falters, was an adequate solution. Despite this, the Giants have made opted to rearrange the O-line a bit more. Rich Seubert will be shifting over from LG to snap while David Diehl returns to his 2006 guard spot.

Last but not least, the must anticipated installment of Shawn Andrews into the starting lineup will occur today as the former Eagle will get a crack at the LT job.

With final cuts days away, the Giants find themselves in a precarious position. Injuries have thrown the availability of several key players into question and providing adequate depth to remedy the situation may force the team to cut players that deserve to stay.

To help untangle the mess, I?ll be posting installments that break down the depth at each position group over the next week.? Today we start with perhaps the most important position group, the Offensive Line.

There are currently 10 players on the roster that have a legitimate shot at landing a spot on the line. The importance of this position and the recent injury problems it has encountered suggest that the Giants would like to retain between 8-9 players. Nine may be too high however, due to the roster issues we will be discussing throughout this series.

Contrary to our earlier report, Michael Johnson will not be returning tonight.


Johnson will be inactive along with Rich Seubert, Chris Snee, Jim Sorgi, Eli Manning, Ramses Barden, Jerome Johnson, and possibly Brandon Jacobs.  Jacobs is suffering from a stiff neck.

Analysts and fans alike were expecting a significant free agent signing by the Giants.? They expected a veteran QB to add depth.? They got a 3-time Pro Bowler.? They got OL ShawnAndrews.

While Andrews joining the Giants is a positive, it may also be a sign of bad news.? Rich Seubert is still out with a broken hand and Chris Snee is also out of Saturday?s game with a knee injury that?s kept him inside the locker room as camp wraps up.

The Giants have not ruled either starting guard out of the Week 1 matchup against Carolina.? However, Andrews is not a reserve caliber player brought in to add emergency depth.? In fact, breaking reports indicate that Andrews signed a 6 year deal.
