Will Joe Schoen give any of these guys a look?

1. RB Cam Akers

The running back position is not settled entering the new campaign. In fact, it’s likely far from that. Devin Singletary will be the featured back, and fifth-round pick Tyrone Tracy Jr. will get some burn, but there’s a litany of interesting free agents who could make a difference in New York. One of those is former Florida State star Cam Akers.

He’s suffered some major injuries, but Akers is still only 24 years old. It wasn’t a great campaign for Akers in 2023, who spent time with the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings, but it’s rather surprising no team has taken a flier on his services yet in free agency.

Even if they just give Akers a look in training camp and during the preseason, the Giants could potentially find a diamond in the rough. Akers is only one season removed from his career-high in rushing with 786 yards and nine touchdowns. We’re willing to bet that type of play is in there somewhere for Akers.
