The Giants are only a few pieces away from being a playoff team, but what moves should they make in the upcoming off-season?
The Giants are currently 5-8 and sit one game back of the first-place Washington Football team. The Giants are still in the hunt for the playoffs and only need to be tied with Washington to make the playoffs. The schedule for the next three weeks will make it tough for the Giants so now is the perfect time to look ahead at three things the Giants must do in the off-season.
Draft or Sign A WR #1:
If the Giants are going to build around Daniel Jones, one thing is very clear, they need to give him a true WR #1. Don’t get me wrong Slayton has been very good for the Giants, but he isn’t a WR1 he is the perfect WR2. With the upcoming NFL draft and free agency being a gold mine of WR talent now is the perfect time to give Jones a weapon. Some options in free agency are Kenny Golladay and Allen Robinson, both would elevate the Giants’ offense to a new level as they are tall receivers with great hands. Some options via the draft around pick 10 would be Devonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, and Rondale Moore.
Get A CB2:
The Giants signed James Bradberry to a three-year contract during the off-season and it has turned into one of the best signings the Giants have made in a long time. Bradberry has been playing like a top-three corner all year and is in talks as the best corner this year. The signing was supposed to give the Giants a one-two punch with Deandre Baker but we all know what happened there. Big Blue needs a CB2 badly to play on the other side of Bradberry. The 2021 draft is also littered with great CB talent and if Big Blue are to have a top 15 pick, they could end up with one of the big three. Those three are Patrick Surtain, Caleb Farley, and Eric Stokes.
Resign Leonard Williams:
The Giants slapped the franchise tag on Williams in the offseason after failing to agree on a long-term deal. The one year prove it deal has shown that Williams deserves a long term deal as he is having a career year this season. As of now Williams has a total of 8.5 sacks this year and is the leader of the D-Line. The D-line does need to add one or two pieces, but it starts with keeping Williams in New York as then you can build around him.
