After drawing interest from three other teams, guard Kevin Boothe re-signed with the Giants for one year, enabling New York to keep its starting offensive line intact.

The deal was first reported by NFL.com's Kimberly Jones. Boothe, who turns 30 in July, started all 16 games at left guard last year. The 6-5, 320-pounder graded out as an excellent run blocker and the league's 21st-best guard, according to Pro Football Focus.

Terms of his new deal were not immediately available.

Last month, the Giants re-signed left tackle Will Beatty to a five-year deal with $19 million guaranteed. If the team restructures right tackle David Diehl's contract, set to pay him $4.5 million this season, the Giants would return their entire starting unit.

That line helped the Giants average 26.8 points, sixth-most in the NFL.
