2011 NFL Free Agents: David Baas, New York Giants Agree To Terms

The 49ers offense took a blow on Wednesday as center David Baas agreed to terms on a new contract with the New York Giants. Shaun O'Hara had been the Giants long-time center, but he is expected to be released when teams can start cutting players on Thursday. Baas played center last season for the first time since college but provided some solid work and will move right into the Giants starting lineup.

This move leaves the 49ers offensive line with a fairly big hole in the middle. Eric Heitmann is out for the season with his neck injury, leaving the team once again without any center experience. Adam Snyder played some center during the Camp Alex lockout workouts so Mike Solari could try and slot him in there. The team drafted Daniel Kilgore as a possible long-term option and also added Chase Beeler via undrafted free agency. And of course, the 49ers could decided to chat with Shaun O'Hara now that he'll be walking away from New York.
