The offseason isn’t over but the 2015 New York Giants will be what they’re going to be at this point. Sure, there are some signings and maybe even some trade possibilities for the Giants to pursue but at this point there is no miracle cure for all their problems. The strengths and weaknesses of the roster are basically set.
Now in training camp we’ll get rid of some players. Some of these players we will see on the Giants practice squad, others will look for opportunity elsewhere. The Giants have to get their roster down from 90 men to 53 before the season starts. The Giants will give us an ordered depth chart during the preseason but the invitation list to training camp is all but set at this point. There is little action left for general manager Jerry Reese to do.
After the NFL Free Agent frenzy, the NFL Draft, and grabbing undrafted free agents it is time for us to grade the Giants offseason. We will grade the offseason in two halves. The first half of the grade will be made up of Free Agency. The other half of the grade will be made up of the NFL Draft. I will grade both the draft and free agency and give a final grade for the offseason. I do this with the caveat that the offseason isn’t over and anything can happen still no matter how unlikely it may be that a dramatic change will occur.
