It looks like NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen isn't done making head-turning moves in free agency just yet. The third-year GM has been quite busy, but fans have been hoping for some secondary help to arrive, especially after Xavier McKinney signed with the Packers.

Enter Tre'Davious White? Recently, GMenHQ's Doug Rush pitched for the Giants to go after White to help former No. 24 overall pick Deonte Banks develop. Rush and countless others could be getting their wish, as ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported White will take a visit to East Rutherford in the coming days.

The Giants will hope to beat out the Rams and Titans for Tre'Davious White

White was an All-Pro cornerback with the Bills in 2019 and he's earned Pro Bowl honors twice. However, injuries have hampered him of late, as he tore his ACL in 2021, causing him to miss most of the 2022 season too. Then, more bad luck arrived in '23.

Last fall, in a showdown against the Miami Dolphins, White was matched up with Tyreek Hill and pulled up with a non-contact injury. He was in a ton of pain and it was confirmed he suffered the season-ending injury shortly after.

He has only appeared in 10 games over the past two seasons, which is of course concerning, but this will be something White and Schoen surely discuss while he's in town meeting with the Big Blue front office. When healthy, White has proven how valuable he can be for a defense.

As things stand, though, the Giants have limited cap space to work with and they're of course not going to overspend on White, especially after the injury issues he's had to deal with. However, adding a veteran presence like this to a young defensive backs room is absolutely needed this offseason - depending on how he's recovering from his Achilles tear, that is.

The Rams and Titans will hope to land White's signature, but let's see if Schoen can sell him on the young talent the NY defense features, which of course includes Dexter Lawrence and Kayvon Thibodeaux. Oh, and don't forget about the blockbuster addition of EDGE Brian Burns too.
