Breno Gomes Giacomini[1] (born September 27, 1985)[2] is an American football offensive tackle for the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL). He was selected in the fifth round by the Green Bay Packers in the 2008 NFL Draft.[3][4] He played college football at Louisville. Giacomini is of Brazilian descent.[5] Along with Gary Barnidge of the Cleveland Browns, Giacomini founded in 2011 American Football Without Barriers, a football-related charity foundation.[6]

Early years[edit]

The son of two Brazilian expatriates from Governador Valadares,[7] Giacomini was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts and raised in Malden. His interest in playing football begun as Giacomini was brought to meet New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe at the Boston Marriott, where his father worked.[8] Giacomini was a three-year starter as a defensive end and outside linebacker at Malden High School with Joe Morrisey. He started his freshman and sophomore years, but decided to not play football as a junior to concentrate on basketball, as he averaged 21.0 points per game as a senior and was second in the league in scoring. However, one of his high school football coaches convinced him to resume playing football for college.[4]

College career[edit]

Giacomini played college football at Louisville. While he had played on the defensive side of the ball in high school, the Louisville coaches were so impressed with his speed and catching ability they converted him to a tight end for his freshman and sophomore seasons.

When he reported to fall camp in 2006, he had grown from a 242 pound tight end to a 303 pound offensive tackle forcing the coaching staff to move him to the offensive line. He started two games his junior year when starter George Bussey was out with an injury.

During his senior season, Giacomini moved to starting right tackle. The team's ground game struggled, but he provided solid pass protection, allowing only four sacks and two pressures on 491 pass plays. He earned second-team All-Big East Conference honors.[4]

Professional career[edit]

Green Bay Packers[edit]

He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 5th round, 150th pick overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. On July 23 he was signed to a four year rookie contract with a signing bonus of $179,000.[9] Base salaries are as follows: $295,000 (in 2008), $385,000 (2009), $470,000 (2010), $555,000 (2011).[10]

Seattle Seahawks[edit]

Giacomini was acquired by the Seattle Seahawks from the Packers practice squad on September 28, 2010, and released on October 23, 2010. He was re-signed for the 2011 season, during which he played in 15 games and started 8.[11] He started every game of the 2012 season, including both postseason games.[12]

Giacomini started in 9 games during the 2013 season, missing 7 games (week 4-10) while recovering from knee surgery.[13]

New York Jets[edit]

Giacomini was signed by the New York Jets on March 12, 2014.[14]
