The 2024 season for the NY Giants is rapidly approaching, with the team reporting for organized team activities. As the offseason progresses, the roster that we all saw just a few months ago in the 2023 season was altered significantly.

That same team that went 6-11 last year had several players who opted for free agency and departed to other teams. We saw Saquon Barkley shockingly sign with the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles and Xavier McKinley take a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers. Those were two of the main free agents that went elsewhere from the Giants. Ben Bredeson, Shane Lemieux, A’Shawn Robinson, Cam Brown and Matt Peart were also many of the free agents who have signed elsewhere.

The Giants also had several of their free agents who stayed put for the 2024 season. Players like Isaiah Simmons, Isaiah Hodgins, Gunner Olszewski, Nick McCloud and Casey Kreiter decided to stay in East Rutherford and re-signed for another season. While the majority of the free agents that the Giants had at the start of the period have made their decisions, there are still several who are yet to find new homes:

4. K Randy Bullock

The kicking game took a massive hit for the Giants in 2023, as Graham Gano suffered an injury that landed him on Injured Reserve. He ended up having knee surgery midseason. One of the kickers who came in to help was veteran Randy Bullock, who was competing with Cade York for the main kicking position and won it each week.

In the six games Bullock was active for, he went five-for-six in field goal attempts and 10-for-10 in extra point attempts. Bullock was very solid and consistent for the Giants before a hamstring injury put him on IR.

With Gano healthy and back for the Giants, Bullock wouldn’t be needed for the 2024 season, but given the amount of uncertainty amongst NFL kickers that we always see, it’s a surprise to see a solid veteran like Bullock not signed yet.

However, once we get closer to training camps kicking off later this summer, it would be a major shock to see Bullock not land on someone’s roster, even if it pushes another kicker for their job. Bullock has found a kicking job in the league since the 2013 season and he’ll likely find another one again in 2024.
