The Giants' offensive line purge continued when Shawn Andrews could not reach an agreement on restructuring his contract, ending Andrews' stint with the Giants after one season.

"Myself & Big Blue Couldn't Come To An Agreement On A Favorable Contract, But "IT AIN'T OVA" Thanks 4 Trusting In Me!!!" Andrews wrote on his Twitter page.

"The Giants contacted me...with the objective of renegotiating Shawn's contract. We couldn't come to agreement on a mutually accepted deal and Shawn will be released Thursday. Both parties have kept the door open," Rich Moran, Andrews' agent, wrote in a message to The Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo.

Andrews follows Rich Seubert and Shaun O'Hara, both of whom were told of their pending releases today.

Andrews was due $7.5 million this season.

Elsewhere, Rocky Bernard was asked to modify his contract. There's no word yet on his decision.

Yea really no surprise. I wouldn't rule out a return either. For now we want to get well below the cap and be comfortable pursuing Free Agents.

Dont be so sure. There is a mutual respect there and I think if he gets out there and test the waters there are a lot of players better and without the health concern.

A chance to start is probably something he is looking for we offer that here but Dallas seems like a very likely landing spot.
