For what felt like the 40th year in a row, the NY Giants offensive line was a complete disappointment in 2023. Whether it was Daniel Jones, Tyrod Taylor or Tommy DeVito under center, the quarterbacks barely had any chance to breathe, let alone scan the field.

Because of that, major changes are going to be needed up front for the 2024 campaign. While there's been plenty of talk about finding a replacement for right tackle Evan Neal, something has to happen on the inside at guard too. With that said, releasing Mark Glowinski and bringing someone else in feels like a no-brainer for Joe Schoen and Co.

Cutting Mark Glowinski will create about $5.6 million in cap space

In taking a look at potential cap casualties across the NFL, The 33rd Team's Ari Meirov listed Glowinski as his choice for the Giants and we agree 100 percent. By cutting Glowinski, the Giants will save $7.1 million in terms of his cap hit, while eating $1.5 million for the dead cap hit - the Giants would create about $5.6 million by releasing him. Again, a no-brainer.

"Mark Glowinski was in and out of the starting lineup this past season as the coaching staff believed he wasn’t a dependable starter anymore. The New York Giants' offensive line will once again undergo reshuffling this offseason, and Glowinski is not expected to be part of that group anymore."

Glowinski's start to the season could not have gone worse, as he was brutal to watch in the 40-0 loss to the Cowboys. His performance was so bad, the Giants ended up benching him for the Week 2 win over the Arizona Cardinals, with Joshua Ezeudu shockingly getting the starting nod at right guard.

In total, Glowinski ended up appearing in 13 games for the G-Men in 2023, but he only posted six starts. When he signed a three-year deal worth $18.3 million with the Giants ahead of the 2022 campaign, people had high hopes for him to become a stud OG for the NY offense. That didn't prove to be the case and now it's feeling quite likely that Glowinski will be suiting up for a different team once next September arrives.
