At the end of the day, the NY Giants would be thrilled to come away with just two of the players on this list. Armed with $75M, Dave Gettleman is still going to have to get creative to fill all the roster holes in an efficient way.
Is the route throwing top-end money at a couple of the premier free agents and hoping star power outweighs depth, or signing multiple mid-tier free agents and going for the strength in numbers?
Only time will tell, but the most prudent way to handle free agency is a mix between the two. Grabbing one playmaker on each side of the ball and then taking a stab at some of the higher-upside guys seems to be a winning strategy.
With Dave Gettleman on his last legs and Joe Judge just starting his head coaching career, it’ll be interesting to follow their dynamic. Survival mode will have Gettleman laser-focused on 2020, while Judge will likely be most interested in building a team for the future.
Hopefully, the two can work together in putting the franchise in the best possible position for the next few seasons — not just 2020. A positive free agency period would allow the NY Giants to focus more on the best players available rather than drafting mainly on need (as Gettleman rightly points out is the worst way to draft).
The team’s top two objectives should be tailoring the offense around Daniel Jones and adding playmakers to the defense.
Starting off with grabbing any of these players would give the franchise a tremendous boost and be a solid starting point for the rebuild.
