During today’s press conference at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, New York Giants owner John Mara stated that left tackle Will Beatty is an “ascending player,” but he’s not sure they’ll use the franchise tag on him.
I agree with Mara that Beatty is only getting better and the word is that he’s a priority for them to sign this offseason.
The Giants typically don’t use the franchise tag. They used it last offseason on punter Steve Weatherford, but signed him to an extension shortly after.
At the end of the day, I think the Giants will sign Beatty to an extension.
