4. Signing DT Jordan Phillips

There is nothing wrong with bolstering up your defensive line and that's exactly what the Giants did. Despite adding Burns with Dexter Lawerence and Kayon Thibodeaux, the Giants signed nose tackle Jordan Phillips, who previously played for the Buffalo Bills this past season. With an already loaded defensive front, adding Phillips could make this Giants defense scarier for opponents.

Despite not playing as much over the last couple of seasons due to injuries, Phillips, when healthy, could be a force to be reckoned with. Phillips had 2.5 sacks in 2023 in the 14 games that he played and also had 15 tackles. Phillips also does a great job in adding pressure to the opponent's offensive line, as he had a career-high five passes deflected.

Even though he has not put up huge sack numbers since 2019 when he had 9.5, Phillips is still a great option for the Giants on the defensive side of the ball, as he has been known for his heavy defensive presence and adding lots of pressure to offensive lines and getting after quarterbacks. While his injury history is something to be on the lookout for, this was not a bad move at all for Big Blue.
