NFC East future power rankings: How far are New York Giants from relevancy?
4) New York Giants
The New York Giants enter the 2022 offseason with far more questions than answers, with myriad needs but minimal cap space, and in search of a new general manager to plot a new direction for a franchise that has lost 100 games since it last won a Super Bowl, in 2011.
Daniel Jones’ neck injury complicates the organization’s ability to evaluate whether he is the long-term answer at quarterback, after producing a 12-25 record through his first 37 games while completing 64.3 percent of his passes this season for 2,428 yards with 10 touchdowns against seven interceptions.
How a new general manager views Jones might impact both his ability to get hired, as well as the trajectory of the franchise at the most important position in sports.
While the New York Giants have a pair of top-10 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, holes across the roster including potentially four starting offensive linemen, edge rusher, potentially tight end and along the defensive line are pressing.
It would appear the NY Giants are tiptoeing the highwire of retaining head coach Joe Judge, with pressure to produce immediate results, and pairing him with a general manager who has less than $4 million in cap space this offseason to build a roster capable of sustained success.
Immediate success would seem unlikely given the current state of the roster and resources.
