They NY Giants were among the most active teams in free agency, which even before the NFL Draft has ensured that the team that takes the field in September will look dramatically different than the one that walked off it in January.

From signing wide receivers Kenny Golladay and John Ross to adding tight end Kyle Rudolph and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, the NY Giants went shopping at the top of the market to add marquee playmakers to key positions of need.

That infusion of high-end veteran talent, combined with the incoming rookies still to be added during the NFL Draft later this month has the potential to produce a team capable of making significant strides towards returning to the NFL Playoffs for the first time since 2016. That’s especially true if quarterback Daniel Jones makes the leap the organization hopes he will in his third NFL season.

Before the NFL Draft begins, here is our latest NY Giants 53-man roster projection:

Quarterbacks (2)

Daniel Jones, Mike Glennon

Outside looking in: Joe Webb, Clayton Thorson

Jones is entrenched as the starting quarterback, entering his third season, so it makes little sense to carry three quarterbacks on the active roster.

The NY Giants signed Mike Glennon as a veteran backup, in hopes that he is an upgrade over what Colt McCoy was able to provide when he completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 375 yards with one touchdown and one interception in four appearances, including two starts, in relief of an injured Jones.
