2. RFA C Matt Skura
Matt Skura checks in on our list as the only restricted free agent, which makes this proposition a little difficult to navigate. With him being an RFA, the Ravens would have the right to match any potential offer that came in from the NY Giants.
Another potential hurdle is Skura’s current injury situation, as the center suffered a serious knee injury in Week 12 of last season. In a way, though, that could make him more gettable as the Ravens might not be inclined to match a solid offer that comes in for a player that might not be ready for the start of regular-season action.
With the way players recover from knee injuries now, I’d bet he will, in fact, be ready for the season opener, but that shouldn’t be a big deterrent for a Giants team that’s not expected by many to compete for the playoffs in 2020, anyway. Spencer Pulley is still on the roster and would be able to fill in for the first few weeks if it came to that.
Skura is just 26-years-old and has been the anchor of one of the NFL’s best run games the past two seasons, so locking him up for the next few seasons could be huge.
It would also potentially save Big Blue from having to chase a center in the upcoming draft.
Chance it happens: Low
Potential offer: 4 years/$24M ($15M GTD)
