1. CB Stephon Gilmore

Stephon Gilmore makes sense for the Giants because he brings veteran leadership and experience. The 33-year-old DB has played with the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, and, most recently, the Dallas Cowboys. Gilmore played best with the Patriots, winning the Defensive Player of the Year award and contributing to the team's Super Bowl LIII win in 2019. Although Gilmore is at the back end of his career, the five-time Pro Bowler should still be a valuable asset to any team's secondary that he joins this campaign.

In case you were wondering, Gilmore can still perform at a high level. The veteran cornerback had 54 solo tackles, one forced fumble, two interceptions, and 13 passes defended last season with the Cowboys. If the G-Men offer Gilmore a short-term deal, we can expect the veteran to post similar numbers at CB opposite second-year defensive back Deonte Banks. Gilmore could also mentor the team's young talent within the secondary, a role previously held by Adoree' Jackson.

While Daboll and Schoen are still finalizing this year's roster, it's still to be determined if they decide to bring in another veteran cornerback to boost their secondary or not. After gaining salary cap money from Waller's retirement, the Giants recently signed Tre Herndon to a one-year deal worth up to $1.125 million. With money left over from the tight end's departure, we'll see if the Giants decide to spend their remaining camp space this offseason or if they end up waiting to use it during the season to address injury concerns instead.
