Giants '13 free agent list

1/2/2013

Happy New Year! It's 2013 and the New York Giants can officially start looking forward to this upcoming season.

GM Jerry Reese believes the Giants still have a championship contending core but he also promises that the roster will look slightly different next season.

Here is the unofficial Giants' unrestricted/restricted/exclusive rights free agent list:

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

T Will Beatty -- Hard to find starting left tackles. Might be most important Giants free agent.

DE Osi Umenyiora -- Won't rule out return but sounds ready to move on.

G Kevin Boothe -- Versatile and solid. Giants should bring him back.

TE Martellus Bennett -- Should only get better but will another team offer more money?

S Kenny Phillips -- Would like to see him back but for right price.

LB Chase Blackburn -- Solid vet is an asset but is NYG ready to go with Mark Herzlich?

LB Keith Rivers -- When healthy, showed glimpses of speed and athleticism.

K Lawrence Tynes -- Best NFL kicker until shaky finish. Should still be re-signed.

DT Rocky Bernard -- Cheap and reliable but Marvin Austin needs snaps.

WR Domenik Hixon -- Solid veteran provides depth and a punt returner.

WR Ramses Barden -- Shined in start vs. CAR but didn't get many other opportunities.

QB David Carr -- Knows system and works well with Eli.

TE Travis Beckum -- Injuries hampered Giants career.

T Sean Locklear -- Great until suffering ugly knee injury.

CB Justin Tryon -- Invite to camp?

RB Kregg Lumpkin -- Saw some third-down duties.

DT Shaun Rogers -- Blood clot kept him out of '12.

CB Brian Witherspoon -- Has to come back from another ACL tear.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

WR Victor Cruz -- Time to pay the salsa.

S Stevie Brown -- The surprise of 2012 could be starting safety next season.

RB Andre Brown -- On the mend after broken leg derailed best season.

TE Bear Pascoe -- Versatile and needed for blocking.

RB Ryan Torain -- Didn't play much.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS

DE Adrian Tracy -- 'Yosi' (Young Osi) might see bigger role.

C Jim Cordle -- Good for depth/special teams.

DE Justin Trattou -- Giants like his potential.
