The Giants have made it abundantly clear this offseason that they plan to begin their fix of a "broken" offense by addressing the offensive line. They've been much less transparent where they will go for what piece -- until now.

NJ.com has learned the Giants are planning to attack free agency by looking at some of the top, young guards on the market. The team is currently without a set starter at either guard spot with Chris Snee trying to prolong his career coming off a serious hip injury, David Diehl retired and Kevin Boothe a free agent.

Among some of the top free agent options at guard are Kansas City's Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz, San Diego's Chad Rinehart, Denver's Zane Beadles and Cleveland's Shawn Lauvao. All are proven starters in their mid-to-upper 20s.

Schwartz, 27, was the eighth-ranked guard this past season by Pro Football Focus. He graded out well in the run game, pass game and on screens, which would seem to make him a solid fit in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense.

Asamoah, 25, also finished with a strong 2013 grade, despite spending the latter part of the season on the bench behind Schwartz. He was the 20th-ranked guard with a +7.9 overall ranking.

Rinehard, 28, and Beadles, 27, were key contributors on strong offensive lines while Lauvao missed the early part of the Browns’ season with a high ankle sprain before coming back in Week 5. He played much better late in the year when he returned to full strength.

Any of the five would be an upgrade over last year, when the Giants were forced to ride the aging Diehl and shuffled Boothe and James Brewer at left guard most of the season. Eli Manning was sacked a career-high 39 times and faced constant pressure, particularly from the interior of the line.
