Default Giants sign OL Shawn Andrews

giantspathanlon Roster move to close camp...#NYG have signed former Eagle and 3-time Pro Bowl OL Shawn Andrews...team waived OL Cliff Louis to make room.

Not a bad move if Andrews can fight their his mental issue. This is a no risk move, which can yield big rewards if things work out.

Wow what a steal, why was he cut? Andrews is easily one of the best run blockers in the league by far. Has been a great run blocker ever since he was at Arkansas.

What a steal, he should really help the Giants run game and should be starting real soon I bet.

I think he was battling depression or something like that. So the Eagles cut him, and then not sure where he played or went after that. But this is a no risk move. If we can't help him, and if he fails to meet expectations, we can also cut him again. Somehow if he can play up to his pro bowl level, then he and Snee really could be a great guard tandem.

He has major back problems. I think we cut him because he was asking for more money, while contributing nothing by being on IR for possibly a second season in a row.

Good signing, and even I was still surprised he was on the market as long as he was.

Quote:
Andrews was Philadelphia's first-round pick in 2004 and made the Pro Bowl in 2005, '06 and '07. But in 2008, he started two games before hitting the injured reserve with a back injury and hasn't played since re-injuring it in training camp last year. The Eagles waived him last March when he failed a physical.

Good signing for the Giants, they don't have anything to lose signing him, but have a lot to gain, especially if he can somehow battle through his mental and physical issues. Unfortunately, I gave up on him ever regaining his '05/'06 form back in '09, and I don't think anything is really going to change much.

Great sign, if he can get even close to his old form this is a steal.

Low risk, high reward pickup. I like it.

I'm concerned though of what this means. Are we cutting McKenzie? Is there a serious injury concern with Snee or Seuburt that caused this move? Do they lack faith in Beatty?

Or did they just pick up a guy who can be nice depth, possibly something more?

In a perfect world, he comes back to form and we have him at RT just plowing through guys. I personally think he's done, back injuries are very difficult to come back from, but who knows.

Maybe the plan is to take his and Kareem McKenzie's spines and fuse them into one functional spine?

That's the thought process behind this signing. If his back can hold, and he has his mental health fixed, he can come in and contribute. If he can regain his form, then he and Snee could do something very special as our guards. It's not like we have to play him right away. We can ease in into it.

ALBANY, N.Y. - On the final day of training camp, the Giants made a stunning roster move.

The team signed former Eagles first-round pick Shawn Andrews, a talented but oft-injured and somewhat troubled two-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman whose career in Philadelphia ended in March when he was waived by the franchise.

"Our personnel staff has been monitoring Shawn's progress for a while now," general manager Jerry Reese said in the team's press release. "He looks great and had a very good workout for us yesterday. He can play both guard and both tackle positions. We just have to take him slow for the rest of the preseason to get him into game shape. Shawn is very excited and grateful for this opportunity to play for the New York Giants

Yea he could be an absolute great signing, key word being "could", as I see the chances of him amounting to anything as being really low, which really hurts, because for a while he was my favorite player. Basically, its a signing that the Giants have no risk in, he isn't getting paid much I assume, and at least offers some experienced backup. The only way this sgining backfires on them is if he would come in for an injured player and then get injured himself, but if that's the case, I think they'd be screwed a little no matter what. I hope he does well, I actually want to see him turn things around, but there is less than a one in ten chance that will happen if you ask me.

Yeah, he very well could flop. If that's the case we cut him. But it's not like Reese woke up one day and said, let's sign Andrews! Apparently we been watching him closely, and even brought him in for a workout. So he had to have impressed us some way.

But the guy has immense talent. He can maul anyone in this league. But the big IFS pertain to his back and mental health. The good thing is he doesn't have to play right away. He can learn, and get some self right before playing. Plus, hopefully having time off helped him. Maybe now he can get hungry again to prove himself. If that happens then this might be a huge signing. Obviously it's a wait-and-see situation, but interesting signing none the less.

I hate to say it but I can't say I feel the same way. The guy was given so many chances to turn it around for the eagles, hell they brought in his freakin brother to play next to him, and he never did. If he starts beasting now for our biggest rival, I'm going to be bitter.

Eh, it's not like the guy is a bum and was doing stupid stuff off the field to put himself in that position. He's just a guy struggling with depression who lost the will to play football.

Even if it were for another team I'd still root for the guy to come back and succeed.

Best gamble of the whole offseason...even moreso than Dez to Dallas simply because that's a gamble (Dez is the truth)...I absolutely love this move, and I wish Andrews the best of luck...he's still a pre-prime OL who is absolutely dominant when he's got it going.

Meh. Backs are tough to recover from. Mix in some depression, and it's even tougher.

Plus, he's so far behind, it's gonna be hard for him to crack the starting lineup at this point in time. It's one thing if we got him in the beginning of training camp, but it's so late now, the roster has pretty much been formed at this point outside some fringe guys who won't make an impact anyway.

If he pans out, it's a bonus. But I'm not expecting it to happen. I do like the signing though, it was a good gamble.
