The NY Giants have some key decisions to make once free agency begins. After a disappointing 6-10 season that saw basically everything fall apart, Joe Schoen needs to nail this offseason, including filling important spots at multiple positions.

There's top-of-the-line free agents at every position, especially ones the Giants need to prioritize this offseason. With the salary cap coming in higher than expected, Schoen and the rest of the front office will have some more money to work with. They likely have room for one or two splash signings, but what about the rest? There are some former Giants hitting the market that would fill key areas of need and could maybe make their way back to playing at MetLife every Sunday.

4. WR Odell Beckham Jr

This one would divide the fanbase in half, especially considering Odell Beckham Jr. isn't the same player he was during his time with the Giants. If he were brought back, he wouldn't be the No. 1 receiver, as he's older and not as explosive as before. Still, adding Beckham to the Giants' wide receivers room wouldn't be that bad of an idea considering he'd come at a cheaper price than originally expected when they had talks last offseason.

He spent last season in Baltimore, catching 35 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns while averaging 16.1 yards per reception. All things considered, Beckham wasn't bad during his one season with the Ravens, especially since he only appeared in 50 percent of offensive snaps. He played more of a mentor-type role for Zay Flowers, who flashed in his rookie year and is going to get even better as the years go on.

Who's to say Beckham can't be the same for the Giants this year? They've been linked to taking a few wideouts with the No. 6 overall pick, including LSU's Malik Nabers, who's been compared to Beckham coming out of college. A return to the Giants would certainly make headlines and a lot of fans happy. While it wouldn't be a deal to become the team's No. 1 wideout or even second option, Beckham could come back and finish his career where it started while providing valuable mentorship to younger players.
