2) NY Giants

The NY Giants’ top organizational priority this offseason, it seems obvious, was to put the kind of weapons around Daniel Jones to make a legitimate determination if he can become an elite passer in the NFL.

Kenny Golladay is two years removed from finishing as the NFL’s leading receiver, and even if guaranteeing $45 million over the next four seasons was an overpay, the ends will justify the means if he continues to be a prolific receiver over the life of the deal.

Kadarius Toney’s rookie training camp has been a disappointment, but he has the explosiveness and versatility to be a legitimate weapon from the slot, the perimeter, or even out of the backfield.

Adding Golladay and Toney to a receiving corps that already includes Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton gives Jones the weapons he needs to take the NY Giants’ offense to new heights this season.

If he does, New York will push for a playoff berth. But, if Jones falters again, the organization is well-positioned to find a quarterback to maximize all of the talent it’s accumulated at the skill-positions.
