4. Tre Herndon

After playing the first six seasons of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Herndon is likely heading elsewhere. He had 46 total tackles, nine passes defended, and a forced fumble in 2023, serving as a rotational piece.

Herndon has been relegated to a reserve role in the past few seasons, playing less than half of the Jaguars' defensive snaps for three consecutive campaigns. He would likely see a bigger role with the Giants with a strong training camp if he fits into new DC Shane Bowen's scheme.

When he is on the field, Herndon is a respectable player. He earned an impressive 71.4 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus last season and was excellent in zone coverages. This could be an under-the-radar move by Joe Schoen to bolster the secondary next year. While Herndon has not ruled out a return to Jacksonville, New York would be a great alternate landing spot for the 28-year-old DB.
