While NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen has made several key improvements on both sides of the ball this offseason, the work won't stop for the young GM. There's no question that depth on the offensive line was an issue for the G-Men last season, but Schoen has worked to improve that issue.
Could another addition in the form of a 6-5, 310-pounder be on the way for the Giants this week? According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Giants will be hosting young offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste for a visit on Tuesday. Cajuste spent the past two seasons with the New England Patriots, appearing in 17 games.
Will the NY Giants end up signing former Patriots OT Yodny Cajuste?
Cajuste may not be a household name, but he's got great size and could be a cheap addition for the OL room at this point in the offseason. Last week, he was released by the Patriots. In 2021, he made two starts for the team and followed that up with three more this past season.
The Giants are pretty set for the future at both right tackle and left tackle, with Evan Neal and Andrew Thomas manning those spots. Thomas is coming off the best year of his career, earning All-Pro honors. Neal struggled in his rookie campaign, but the hope is that he can take a major step forward in '23.
You can never have enough quality offensive linemen, though, which is why it makes sense that Schoen is bringing in Cajuste to see if this will be a good fit or not. East Rutherford is buzzing right now with OTAs underway.
We should find out soon if Cajuste will end up donning a Big Blue jersey this fall and winter. The G-Men do have some competition, though, as Cajuste will be meeting with the Jets on Monday.
