News: Jets sign OT Breno Giacomini

The Jets officially announced their first external signing of the free agency signing period, former Seahawks tackle Breno Giacomini.

The 28-year old started 12 games last season for the Super Bowl champion Seahawks, including all three playoff games.

Bent, TheJetsBlog.com

As we reported yesterday, the Jets were interested in signing Giacomini to replace the departing Austin Howard as starting right tackle. According to a team source, he was at the premises this morning and the fact nothing had been leaked all day about him leaving the premises or arranging any further vists was obviously a good sign.

Giacomini is solid in pass protection and the Seahawks typically posted good numbers when rushing to his side. He worked well in zone blocking packages which could be a direction the Jets move towards even more next season. General manager John Idzik should be more than familiar with him from his time in Seattle.

This might not be the news the Jets were hoping to hear, but it’s a solid signing. From what we hear, more moves could be in the pipeline, so stay tuned to TJB for the latest updates.

Honestly, does anyone else have major concerns about Decker because of the inflated Manning #'s.

Giacomini is garbage, absolute garbage, can't pass block to save his life. Just watch, you'll see, Mario Williams is going to steamroll this chump and put Geno Smith in the hospital, unless he can run for his life like Russell Wilson. Thats what overcame Giacomini last year, Wilson's ability to elude sacks and throw on the move. You'll see what I mean. This guy is going to get our QB killed. Go read the Seattle message boards if you think I'm kidding. They are jumping for joy that this guy is gone, and warning Jets fans that Geno's life is in danger, and I watched him enough to know its true.

Give nicks and Vick a 1 year deal let Vick start he'll get hurt on a breno missed block then he can become the mentor we want him to be

For me, that 'bad' is 'twice a season very bad'...wonder how much 'value added' could the Jets have placed on any proposed contract just to keep him from going to the Pats, ala Steinbrenner and the Bosox.  If nothing else, it might have forced the Patriots to pay even more.

@dobermite I live in Seattle and watched just about every single snap of Seahawks football last year. Breno's never going to be an all-pro tackle or anything, but he's pretty solid in both run and pass protection. The Football Outsiders stats back me up. PFF backs me up: "Has developed into a solid zone blocking tackle, where his athleticism can mask some of his other weaknesses." And to say Russell Wilson was running for his life to get away from Breno's mistakes... gimme a break. RW had more designed rollouts than any QB in the NFC last year.


Again, Breno's not an amazing player, but to call him garbage is just ridiculous.

Yet, he's better than Howard. Go figure.

Breno is better than Austin and it was like Russell Wilson got pasted when he was at RT.

@Johnsbodybyvi Ledo 

To me, $7.4 mil seems low for a legit #1, but a little high for a #2WR. I don't know if Decker's ever been considered a #1 but, regardless, we needed to make this signing and the FA crop ain't great this year.
