NY Giants: 3 free agents to consider before training camp
This July, the NY Giants will be looking to prepare to begin the ascension from 6-10 with the opening of training camp. Currently slated for the 27th, the Giants have a little over a month until the position battles begin as well.
In order to right the wrongs of last year, there will need to be major improvements in a few areas. The backfield will see organic improvement simply through the return of Saquon Barkley from an ACL tear. If the injury ends up affecting his long-term durability, perhaps looking ahead to cushioning the RB room in next year’s NFL Draft is worth considering.
For now, though, expecting a bounce-back from the 2018 #2 pick is fair, and the additions of Devonae Booker, and second-year Corey Clement out of RBU (Wisconsin).
Wide receiver was considered the most major position of need this offseason for the NY Giants according to The Draft Network, but that void was filled with the free agency addition of Kenny Golladay and the first-round draft selection of Kadarius Toney. The CB room was also propped up by the addition of Adoree Jackson in free agency from Tennessee.
With that hole filled, there are still others on the roster worth addressing.
These 3 free agents could help NY address them if signed before the start of training camp:
NY Giants free-agent target No. 1: Morgan Moses
While his deal was not palatable for the Washington Football Team, Morgan Moses is still capable of providing value on a more reasonable contract. The former RT for the Football Team was cut with two years left on his deal and just turned 30 this offseason.
As the starter in the nation’s capital for the past six seasons, Moses served as a leader by example and was never a problem in the Washington locker room. He was a cap casualty in an offseason many teams are looking to recoup from the financial losses from the pandemic.
Going head-to-head with Matt Peart for the starting RT spot could spark a more competitive OL. Daniel Jones would love for that to happen.
