There are boatloads of changes coming for the NY Giants this offseason, but the same can be said for the Buffalo Bills. It's been a rough few days for the AFC East side, as they suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round. Come 2024, several guys won't be back with the team due to salary cap constraints.

This could include veteran wideout Gabe Davis. Davis is set to be a free agent this offseason and while he said he's open to a return to Buffalo, it looks like he may have played his last game with the team, especially after he was caught going at it with fans on Sunday night. With that said, the Giants and general manager Joe Schoen should stay away from him come March:

The Giants and Joe Schoen should stay away from Gabe Davis in free agency

Davis is a solid player, don't get us wrong. However, he has a projected market value of between $11-13 million per season. With the Giants needing to address other needs, including the pass-rush and offensive line, there's no reason to give a wideout of Davis' caliber that kind of dough. Use the money for the offensive line instead!

Keep in mind too that countless NFL Mock Drafts are projecting Schoen and the G-Men to use the No. 6 overall pick on either LSU's Malik Nabers or Washington's Rome Odunze. This team needs a WR1 to make a difference for Daniel Jones. That's where either Odunze or Nabers would step in - Davis is not the guy.

Towards the end of the season, Wan'Dale Robinson showed some positive flashes, which will be big for the 2024 campaign. Darius Slayton will be back and he was pretty darn good for the Giants in '23, leading the team in receiving once again. Don't forget about Jalin Hyatt, who needs to see an increased role in the offense moving forward.

On paper, Davis, who posted 45 receptions for 746 yards and seven touchdowns this season, would be an exciting get for the Giants. However, Schoen can't break the bank on a WR2/3. It'd be better to look elsewhere for offensive help.
