While most of the talk yesterday was about the Giants making a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals for a starting LB, they signed OT Sean Locklear from Washington. Sean is 6’4″ and 310 pounds, he played 7 years with the Seattle Seahawks before spending last season with the Washington Redskins. He has played in 105 regular season games.
“It’s exciting,” said Locklear, who will attend the opening of the Giants’ offseason conditioning program on Monday. “I was on the other end of two games against the Giants last year – followed them pretty well in their run to the Super Bowl. But, actually, when I got the call I was kind of excited about the chance to actually play in New York and who doesn’t want to play with the team who just got done winning the Super Bowl? My thing is to just get in here and start fresh, start learning again and try to help this team get back to where they want to go.”
Locklear was originally a 3rd round draft pick from North Carolina State, and prefers to play right tackle. He will have the chance to compete and win that job in camp, and he certainly adds depth at a much needed position.
Welcome to the Super Bowl Champion New York Football Giants Sean….We are glad to have you.
