James Brewer Set To Hit Free Agency

James Brewer, who plays offensive tackle for the New York Giants, has hinted that he will become a free agent on Tuesday, March 10 via his Instagram post, which read:

“was an honor to represent Big Blue these last four years. Made a lot of friendships and wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.”

Brewer only appeared in two games in 2014 playing 53 snaps before suffering a concussion which resulted in him being put on injured reserve for the rest of the season. He never became the offensive lineman the Giants had hoped when they drafted him in the fourth round (117th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Indiana.

He struggled to crack the starting lineup during his four years with the team, and when he did get a chance to play he didn’t perform very well. Out of the 26 games he played in he only started eight of them. All eight of those starts came in the 2013 season when he was thrust into the starting lineup when the offensive line was plagued with injuries to key players.

As per Pro Football Focus he graded out at -9.9 overall, with a -5.6 run-blocking grade and a -6.3 pass-blocking grade.
