New York Giants: The 6 Biggest Winners from Free Agency Spending Spree
By Mike Luca
4. Geremy Davis, WR
Then there’s the ongoing replenishment of the wide receiving corps. Again, from rookie Josh Doctson to veteran James Jones, speculation swirls around the next G-Men WR add-ons. Victor Cruz is the JPP breath-holder of the offense, Rueben Randle is now with the Philadelphia Eagles and Dwayne Harris is better suited as a specialist.
The quick internal fix is Davis, a 2015 sixth-rounder out of Connecticut. Davis was regularly hinted as being the next man up amid nagging ailments of the other wideouts last season, but even after the typically impressive preseason of a New York roster fighter, he merely logged two receptions for 21 yards.
That being said, Davis is the more trustworthy wild card over the likes of Myles White and Anthony Dable, so long as he contributes to special teams:
"“Geremy Davis is a guy on the offensive side of the ball that I know it’s important to him. He works his tail off and I’m sure he’s out there right now working his tail off to get better and can help us and make a jump on special teams as well.” – Ben McAdoo"
Of course, this could either be another concealed competitive advantage, or all for naught once newer troops are rallied.
