Could New York Giants offensive tackle Matt Peart bew switching positions? Or, are the Giants, razor-thin at guard after training camp retirements and injuries to Shane Lemieux and Nick Gates, just covering themselves by having Peart begin taking practice reps at guard.
“We’ll kind of take a look at him maybe playing some stuff inside as we get going right here,” head coach Joe Judge said on Monday. “We’ll kind of work around through practice these next few days and kind of see where things shake out.”
The Giants drafted Peart in Round 3 (99th overall) a year ago, with the hopes that he would develop into a starting right tackle and the bookend on their offensive line to first-round pick Andrew Thomas.
