The New York Giants have announced that they have signed offensive lineman Shawn Andrews to a six-year contract. According to Mike Garafolo of the New York Daily News, the deal is worth $32.5 million.
Although the outer-layer of the contract looks good, Andrews only received a $250,000 signing bonus, whis is the only guarenteed money in his contract. Andrews salary in 2010 is $1.25 million.
“Our personnel staff has been monitoring Shawn’s progress for awhile now,” Giants GM Jerry Reese said in a statement released by the team. “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.”
