1. OG Kevin Zeitler

Back in 2019, the trade for Kevin Zeitler from the Browns was deemed as a great move by former general manager Dave Gettleman. It was one of the few good moves he made during his tenure, as Zeitler was viewed as one of the league's better guards. During his time with the Giants, Zeitler was undoubtedly the team's best offensive lineman. He missed just one game in two years, playing 99 percent of offensive snaps in each season. Unfortunately, Zeitler was released by the Giants during the 2021 offseason, a bonehead move that the former regime didn't bother to replace.

Once Zeitler was cut, he signed with the Ravens and has been one of the top guards in the league over the last three seasons. He signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with Baltimore and he's been worth every penny since, allowing only five sacks and missing just four games over that span. Even though he's becoming older, Zeitler seemingly is getting better with age.

He'll be 34 this offseason and is still one of the better options on the free agent market, which says a lot about his quality of play. The Giants have struggled mightily on the offensive line, especially along the interior and they need veteran experience badly next to their young investment in center John Michael Schmitz. They had a plethora of names fill both spots last season, including signing Justin Pugh during the season to fill in for the rest of the year. It's time for the Giants to invest in a top guard on the market. If they aren't able to land one of the top options, Zeitler would make perfect sense for a reunion.
