4 NY Giants who must step their game up in 2023
3. OG Mark Glowinski
When the NY Giants signed Mark Glowinski last offseason, it seemed as if New York had finally found a consistent guard to plug into an offensive line that desperately needed it. However, what the Giants got out of Glowinski was the complete opposite.
In 614 pass-blocking snaps, Glowinski allowed a rather putrid five sacks, and 34 pressures, earning a PFF pass-blocking grade of 55.5. Alongside this, Glowinski was also rather putrid in run-blocking snaps as well. While he wasn’t nearly as bad in the run as he was in pass protection, he still wasn’t great.
Considering that the Giants signed him to a three-year, $20 million contract, it’s safe to say that Glowinski has not lived up to it thus far. There is still time for Glowinski to turn things around, though, as people have high hopes for him next fall.
However, if Glowinski does not improve, he very well could be released at the end of next season, as it will save the Giants money while also allowing them to find a replacement through the draft or free agency.
