One of the main offseason priorities for NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen this offseason has been improving the run defense. There's no question he has done that with the latest news that former Rams defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson has signed a one-year deal.

That's great, especially after the G-Men previously inked former Buccaneers Super Bowl winner Rakeem Nunez-Roches as well. Robinson was one of the top free agents still available, but Schoen came out on top. Per insider Art Stapleton, it's a one-year deal worth around $4 million, with a total of $8 million available with incentives. That's a major win for the NY front office.

Giants GM Joe Schoen worked his magic with the A'Shawn Robinson deal

Robinson is coming off a torn meniscus in 2022, but goodness, he's a monster at 6-4, 330 pounds. The Giants were able to land Robinson on a great deal, which only has fans even more excited to see what the veteran can do once the 2023 regular season arrives.

This signing has been a long time coming too, as Robinson took a visit to East Rutherford last month. From the moment the stud DT left town, Big Blue fans were waiting to see if Schoen would be able to get things done with him or not. So much time had passed that a lot of people were worried Robinson would end up signing elsewhere.

Instead, Schoen and the rest of the front office made a monster impact on him - one that clearly left a lasting impression on him. With Schoen and Robinson's reps staying in contact, it led to Monday's huge news that Robinson will be balling out at MetLife Stadium next campaign. And, he'll be doing so for around $8 million if he hits all of his incentives? Schoen strikes again, folks.
