Beason retires, Schwartz and Beatty released by Giants
The New York Giants have started to restructure their roster for their first season under coach Ben McAdoo.
The team announced Wednesday that linebacker Jon Beason has retired and that offensive linemen Will Beatty and Geoff Schwartz have been released.
All three players finished the season on injured reserve with Beatty missing the entire season.
Tom Coughlin stepped down as the Giants on Jan. 4 after the Giants (6-10) missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
McAdoo, his offensive coordinator the past two seasons, was chosen to succeed him the following week.
