The Giants made Will Beatty a rich man on Wednesday, and Beatty sounded thrilled to return to New York.

Will Beatty said it was "good to be home" after the New York Giants announced that the left tackle had avoided free ageny by signing a five-year, $38.5 million contract to remain with the team.

"It’s a great feeling. You could be going through free agency, but when that happens a lot of stuff is going through your mind. That feeling is no longer there. You’re settled in with a great team, a team I love playing for. I know the coaching staff," Beatty said. "I’m looking forward to getting back in it and moving forward.

"I’m glad I don’t have any of those free agency jitters to deal with. It’s settled, we’re done and we’re moving on. The contract is behind you – you just have to make sure you’re out there on the field and being a leader out there."

The sky’s the limit for me. I know there is still a lot more out there. - Will Beatty

Beatty, 28 next season, had an outstanding 2012 season, surrendering only three sacks and allowing fewer hits on a quarterback than any other tackle in the league. He still believes he can get better,

"I thought I improved last year, playing the entire season," Beatty said. "I want to get back on the field and keep ascending, keep rising. The sky’s the limit for me. I know there is still a lot more out there. I haven’t tapped into all of my potential yet. I’m looking forward to performing and growing each year."

Beatty said he wanted to remain with the Giants all along.

"I really didn’t want to go into free agency. This is the team that wanted me from college. This is the team that gave me my first chance," Beatty said. "This team went to the Super Bowl. I saw so many great moments with this team and there are still so many more to come."
