Giants' Free Agency 2014: Giants cutting David Baas -- report

David Baas - Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Giants will reportedly cut veteran center. What does that mean?

Perhaps the New York Giants will be striking quickly once the 2014 NFL Free Agency signing period begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. That has to be the only way to read Monday afternoon's report from Jordan Ranaas of NJ.com that the Giants will be cutting center David Baas.

Baas, 32, played only three games for the Giants last season due to knee injuries. Baas signed a five-year free-agent contract with the Giants in 2011 and was set to count $8.225 against the cap in 2014. He did help the Giants win the Super Bowl in 2011, but injuries have hampered him the past two seasons.

Ebenzer Samuel of the Daily News reported that Baas is "not physically ready" to play.

The Giants were reportedly in contact with a pair of free-agent centers on Monday, Evan Dietrich-Smith of the Green Bay Packers and Brian De La Puente of the New Orleans Saints. The news that Baas is being let go has to be a clear indication that either Dietrich-Smith, who the Packers have reportedly prioritized trying to keep, or De La Puente could be a Giant by Tuesday evening.
