Giants Free Agency 2012: New York Signs OL Sean Locklear

The New York Giants announced the signing of Sean Locklear on Wednesday (via Giants).

Locklear, an eight-year veteran offensive lineman, played seven years for the Seattle Seahawks and spent last year with the Washington Redskins. Locklear was a Third Round (84th overall) pick by the Seahawks out of N.C. State in the 2004 NFL Draft. Locklear has played 105 games and made 82 starts during his NFL career. Last season he played eight games (four starts) for Washington.

Locklear was picked up for depth by the Giants. However, he was excited to join the reigning Super Bowl champions

"It's exciting," said Locklear, who will attend the opening of the Giants' offseason conditioning program on Monday. "I was on the other end of two games against the Giants last year - followed them pretty well in their run to the Super Bowl. But, actually, when I got the call I was kind of excited about the chance to actually play in New York and who doesn't want to play with the team who just got done winning the Super Bowl? My thing is to just get in here and start fresh, start learning again and try to help this team get back to where they want to go."

While Locklear has played both right and left tackle during his career, he says he prefers the right side.
