2. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry

The Giants have significant questions regarding their wide receivers room that need to be addressed. However, the addition of Jarvis Landry would raise even more questions. In what has become a crowded wide receivers room, there is simply no room for Landry to fit in this offense.

Landry is at his best when he lines up in the slot and the Giants already have four other receivers who primarily catch passes from the slot (Wan’Dale Robinson, Parris Campbell, Sterling Shepard, and Jamison Crowder). If the Giants are going to add another receiver, it must be a bigger-bodied player who can play on the outside and make contested catches.

Since entering the NFL in 2014, Landry has been one of the most productive receivers in the league. He was a five-time Pro Bowler from 2015-2019 as a member of both the Dolphins and the Browns. However, at 30 years old, he has seen a steep decline in his receiving yardage output each of the past three seasons. In a Saints wide receiver room that left much to be desired behind Chris Olave, Jarvis Landry wasn’t even a full-time starter with the team last season. NY must pass here.
