Combined with the news that the Giants will also be releasing veteran guard Rich Seubert, this means a stunning transformation will take place in 2011-2012 for the Giants offensive line.
WFAN's Paul Dottino reported that subtracting Seubert and O'Hara from the roster will save the Giants $5.6 million against the salary cap. They are currently reported to be $6.1 million over the $120 million cap.
O'Hara is a three-time Pro Bowl center who anchored the middle of the Giants line from 2004 through last season, when he played just six games due to foot and ankle injuries.
The Giants likely will have to be in the market for a center in the veteran free-agent market. The remaining centers on the roster are Adam Koets, who started six games a season ago, and Jim Cordle, a member of the practice squad last season.
