A key member of the Buffalo Bills defense, Milano was seen as one of the teams most important players by defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. The 26 year old missed a chunk of the 2020 season with an injury, but still managed to set a new career high in sacks with 3.5. Milano is a versatile linebacker – he plays strong in coverage against the pass while also being impressive against the run. Joe Judge loves versatile players, so the Boston College product could be high up on his wish list. Milano would help give the Giants one of the strongest linebacker groups in the entire league – a far cry from the days of Uani Unga and company. It may cost them – he’s expected to have many suitors, but it would be a worthwhile expedition for the team.
Many experts mocked Davis to the Giants in the NFL Draft in 2017, but alas – he never made it to their pick. Davis has had a disappointing tenure as a member of the Detroit Lions – despite being beloved by his teammates and coaching staff, he’s never given them the every down linebacker production they expected when they picked him. Not many players have lived up to expectations inside Matt Patricia’s defense during his time in Detroit, so maybe it’s not too late for Davis. The former Florida Gator is still athletic as heck and can disrupt the quarterback when given the opportunity – perhaps Graham can get the potential the Lions thought Davis had to surface.
Perryman hasn’t been anything special for the Los Angeles Chargers since he entered the league out of Miami in 2015, but he was solid this past season. He provided veteran leadership while first round pick Kenneth Murray struggled, and was good against the run while improving his coverage grade. Still under 30 years old, Perryman would help bring that leadership and provide a steady, veteran presence alongside Martinez. If the Chargers let Perryman walk this off-season, he definitely merits consideration from the Giants.
