2. EDGE Josh Allen

The Jaguars have a lot of players to retain and not a lot of money to do so. With that in mind, it feels possible that they may not be able to offer Josh Allen the contract he may want this offseason. If this is the case, the Giants should swoop in and offer the 26-year-old the deal he deserves. Adding a premier pass rusher of Allen's kind would turn the Giants front five from average, to elite.

According to spotrac.com, Allen has a market value of $21 million, which is a lot of money. However, the Giants could earn some extra cap space by restructuring deals, letting some players walk, or simply releasing some veterans. Fans may be hesitant to pay so much, but a player like Allen would certainly be worth it.

Allen has racked up 13.5 sacks, 82 pressures, 13 tackles for loss, and 55 combined tackles through 15 games this season. Throwing this sort of pass-rushing firepower alongside Kayvon Thibodeaux and Dexter Lawrence would make for arguably the best trio in the NFL.
