We continue our breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp with a look at a player we focused on a bit during mini-camp, third-year offensive lineman James Brewer.
2012 Season In Review
Brewer saw his first regular-season action in 2012, albeit limited. He played 34 snaps at right tackle or right guard in five games. The 2011 fourth-round pick was exclusively a tackle in college at Indiana, but has added the ability to play guard to his resume.
General manager Jerry Reese says "it is time for him (Brewer) to get in there and play' in 2013. Brewer worked at both right guard, where Chris Snee is rehabbing from hip surgery, and right tackle during OTAs and mini-camp. Brewer says "there is a spot to be won" at right tackle, where he is competing with veteran David Diehl and first-round pick Justin Pugh. Whether he wins that job or not, Brewer has become at least a versatile backup for the Giants.
