2. New York Giants
No offense to those guys, but by the end of this season Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James were the Giants’ No. 1 and No. 2 wide receivers based on target volume. Kenny Golladay can be cut this offseason, with some dead money pain that will be worth it, and Darius Slayton is a free agent. So it’s safe to say wide receiver is among their biggest needs, as they look to build off a surprising playoff campaign in Brian Daboll’s first season as head coach.
Daniel Jones seems likely to be back as the Giants’ quarterback, and there seems to be mutual sentiment pointing to running back Saquon Barkley being back too. So the two top internal Giants’ offensive free agents will likely be back, it’ll just be a matter of building the skill talent around them.
The Giants currently have just shy of $44.3 million in cap space, third-most in the league per Over The Cap. So there won’t be much to keep them from targeting a narrow set of big needs in free agency, on the assumption Jones and Barkley are back one way or the other (multi-year deal, franchise tag).
The Giants, albeit the previous general manager Dave Gettleman, swung big and missed bigger on a former Lions’ wide receiver in free agency a couple years ago (Golladay). Fans will surely note that if Chark is signed, but this is an entirely different situation this time around and there could be a nice match here.
