Offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, who played less than six quarters of football for the New York Giants in 2014, has moved a step closer to a complete recovery.
Pins removed! Oh yeaaaa! One step closer to full recovery. Feeling great. Can't wait to be back w/my @Giants teammates helping us win!— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) February 24, 2015
Schwartz is referring to the pins that were placed in the ankle he broke against the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. Schwartz also missed the first half of the season with a dislocated toe.
The Giants signed the veteran to a four-year, $16.8 million contract before last season, hoping he would be an anchor to their rebuilt offensive line. After a wasted 2014 season the Giants find themselves once again looking at Schwartz to be an anchor in the middle of their line at one of the guard spots. Schwartz has been an excellent run blocker throughout his career, and could really help the Giants in that department.
