(NEW YORK) — Offensive tackle Will Beatty will be staying in New York. Beatty and the New York Giants reached an agreement on a five-year deal worth $38.75 million on Wednesday, according to league sources.
Beatty was one of the top free agents available and will receive $19 million of that contract guaranteed.
“It’s good to be home,” Beatty said in a statement released by the Giants. “I’m glad I don’t have any of those free agency jitters to deal with. It’s settled, we’re done and we’re moving on. The contract is behind you — you just have to make sure you’re out there on the field and being a leader out there.”
Beatty, 27, played 50 games (31 starts) since being drafted by the Giants in the second round of the 2009 draft.
“We are very pleased to get a new deal done with Will,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “We believe he is one of the ascending left tackles in the NFL.”
