Report: Giants Moving David Diehl To Left Guard

The Bergen Record is reporting that the New York Giants have told veteran offensive lineman David Diehl that he will be moving to left guard this season, and that Will Beatty is going to take over at left tackle.

Many Giants fans have been hoping for this move for a couple of seasons now, with Diehl's play at left tackle having been sub-par. Beatty was drafted in the second round in 2009 to take over this job, and now we will find out for certain whether or not he can handle it.

The line is now Beatty (LT), Diehl (LG), David Baas (C), Chris Snee (RG), Kareem McKenzie (RT). Adam Koets, Mitch Petrus and Kevin Boothe will likely be the primary backups.

Diehl was drafted by the Giants as a guard, and played well there before being moved to tackle. He has now played every position on the line except center. The Record also reports that the move inside could cost Diehl between $750,000 and $1.1 million, due to the structure of his contract.
