Breno Giacomini Agrees to a Deal With New York Jets
Super Bowl champion and former Louisville Cardinal Breno Giacomini will be on the move this offseason. The free agent offensive tackle reached a deal with the New York Jets on Wednesday evening. He started for the Seattle Seahawks who just won the Super Bowl this past season.
Less than 24 hours after losing right tackle Austin Howard to the Oakland Raiders, the New York Jets found his replacement, agreeing to terms Wednesday night with former Seattle Seahawks tackle Breno Giacomini.
Contract terms weren’t immediately available. Giacomini was the Jets’ first free-agent signing after nearly two full days of inactivity.
The 6-7, 318-pound Giacomini, a fifth-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2008, spent three seasons with the Seahawks. He has 33 career starts, including nine last season. He missed seven games due to a knee injury, but made it back for Seattle’s postseason run. He started in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos.
