Trying to stop DT Vince Wilfork will be a tall but important task for the Giants' offensive line Sunday.
The Giants added a cornerback Tuesday, signing free agent Justin Tryon, who was cut by the Colts last week.
The Giants will have a new-look O-line in 2011 after releasing three veterans, and the unit will surely be tested right off the bat.
The Niners have been knocked back on their heels a bit in the early stages of free agency with the losses of ILB Takeo Spikes and C David Baas.
A day after releasing some key offensive linemen, the Giants added to the unit by signing former 49ers C David Baas on Wednesday morning.
49ers C Eric Heitmann is expected to miss the entire 2011 season after undergoing neck surgery, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reported.
The 49ers put veteran C Eric Heitmann on injured reserve on Tuesday, opening up a roster spot for rookie LB Thaddeus Gibson.

The 49ers today announced that projected starting OLG David Baas has signed the one-year contract he had previously been tendered.
