Signing offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor

This wasn't a blockbuster move by any means, but the Giants are bringing in former Las Vegas Raiders offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor. He'll be with Big Blue for $14 million over the next two seasons, a bargain considering what he’ll bring to the Giants. Eluemunor’s versatility is a huge boon for the team, as he can slot in either at right tackle or at guard, depending on what the team decides to do with Evan Neal moving forward.

Additionally, Eluemunor has familiarity with New York’s freshly minted offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo. Now the narrative that his players didn’t enjoy working with him can be put to bed to an extent, as one of them is joining him with the Giants for another go-round. 

Last season, Eluemunor really showed his ability in the passing game, and he even put up some highlight reel plays against the Giants, when he went up against the aforementioned Thibodeaux and Lawrence. Now, he’ll be wearing the Giants blue, as he suits up for New York, looking to shore up their embattled unit.

All in all, it represented an awesome free agent frenzy for Joe Schoen and the Giants, as they grabbed a versatile lineman who gives them flexibility and dependability moving forward. The Giants got better in free agency, and Eluemunor is one of the reasons why.
