Monday teams began cutting players to free up cap space for the upcoming season, and today the New York Giants went in.  The team released two veteran offensive lineman and Jon Beason the former Carolina Panthers linebacker retired.

They released left tackle Will Beatty and guard Geoff Schwartz on Wednesday, which combined with the retirement of linebacker Jon Beason, creates an additional roughly $12 million of 2016 salary cap space.

“I always tried to give my all and be competitive,” Beason told “I wanted to go out and continue to play at a high level, giving my all. I was able to do that.”

The Giants have plenty of holes moving forward, so they will need this upcoming draft.
