The New York Giants signed veteran former Indianapolis Colts guard Mark Glowinski to a three-year contract, making a major addition along embattled line

General manager Joe Schoen has made his first major addition to New York Giants’ offensive line, and it’s a major commitment on the first day of free agency to fixing the organization’s longstanding glaring weakness.

Hours into the legal tampering period, the Giants signed former Indianapolis offensive guard Mark Glowinski to a Mark Glowinski to a three-year contract worth $20 million, including $11.4 million guaranteed.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler was first to report the Giants‘ signing of Glowinski.

Glowinski, 29, has been a stalwart along the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive line over the past two seasons, after spending two years in Seattle, where he was chosen in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The eight-year veteran arrives in East Rutherford on the heels of one of the more dominant seasons of his career. Not only did Glowinski garner a 70.1 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, but in 843 total snaps he only allowed two sacks and eight quarterback hits.

Over the past three seasons, Glowinski has missed only one game, and that was due to COVID-19 late last season.

Schoen entered his maiden offseason as Giants general manager needed to add four new starters along an offensive line that has been woefully disappointing for the better part of the past decade … if not longer.

Adding Glowinski brings a veteran presence along an offensive line in desperate need both of leadership and consistency.
