OT Victor Riley Visits NY

With Lomas Brown gone, Ron Stone unsigned, and the likely release of Glenn Parker after June 1, the Giants will be looking for offensive linemen.

Free agent offensive tackle Victor Riley arrived in town to visit with the Giants Wednesday night and will be at Giants Stadium on Thursday.

Riley had dinner Wednesday evening with New York OL Coach Jim McNally.

The 6-5, 328-pounder spent the last four years with Kansas City, starting every game in which he's been healthy. He started his first professional game at left tackle and has been manning the RT spot ever since.

The former first-round pick out of Auburn is supposedly only seeking a one-year deal, potentially making him a legitimate possibility for the cap-strapped Giants.

The Chiefs would like to re-sign Riley, who has also drawn interest from the Browns, Bills and Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs scouting report gave him the following review:

    Powerful performer poised on a massive frame, yet is surprisingly agile and athletic for a man his size ... Superb drive blocker who has been a consistent contributor to the Chiefs running game ... Continues to improve as a pass protector and continually holds his own against some of the league's fiercest defensive ends ... Was initially tabbed to work at left tackle when he was drafted in '98 ... Instead, was thrust into the starting line-up at right tackle in just his second NFL contest due to an injury to All-Pro left guard Dave Szott in the season opener ... Quickly proved he could perform at a high level in this league and proceeded to start the club's final 15 games at the right tackle post in the Chiefs reshuffled offensive front ...
