Business is apparently picking up in the New York Giants’ pursuit of options along their offensive line. Guard/tackle D.J. Fluker, one of the players we mentioned earlier as an option for the Giants, is reportedly going to visit East Rutherford, N.J.

Fluker, recently released by the Los Angeles Chargers, was selected 11th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. There was plenty of pre-draft chatter that Fluker might be selected by the Giants had he fallen to 19th. He did not, of course, and the Giants picked Justin Pugh.

Fluker wasn’t great with the Chargers. Sometimes, he probably wasn’t even good. That’s why they revoked his fifth-year option worth $8.821 million and cut ties with him. He is, however, able to play right guard and tackle and he will only 26 years old next season. He could provide competition and, at the least, veteran depth at both spots.

There was also a report Friday that the Giants had expressed some level of interest in former Oakland Raiders right tackle Menelik Watson. Watson, though, apparently has found a new home elsewhere.
