There's going to be a new look for the NY Giants in 2024, but general manager Joe Schoen may not be done adding exciting players to the roster. With the Darren Waller retirement, Schoen has a little more money to work with and fans are hoping he'll bring in a veteran cornerback.

However, what about another exciting piece for the aerial attack? The addition of Malik Nabers still has people fired up, but he's not going to be able to overhaul the O on his own. Yes, Darius Slayton, Jalin Hyatt, Wan'Dale Robinson and others will be ready to step up too, but Michael Thomas is still looking for a new home. If you ask Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox, Schoen needs to call him ASAP.

Giants urged to sign Michael Thomas this summer by Bleacher Report

"Injuries have derailed a once-electrifying career, but the 31-year-old (Thomas) proved that he can still contribute last season. He had 39 catches for 448 yards and a touchdown in 10 games. Thomas is still a 6'3", 212-pound pass-catcher and a terrific route-runner. He could immediately slot in as a reliable possession receiver who complements the rest of New York's offense. And given his recent struggles, he should be open to a team-friendly contract."

On paper, you'd think the Giants are pretty set at wideout, but it's still unknown what might happen with Slayton this offseason. He's on the last year of his contract and there are rumblings that he could potentially get traded this summer. If that happens, Thomas could make sense for this offense.

Knox projects Thomas to land a deal worth $3 million for the 2024 campaign, which would be something NY could definitely afford if Slayton does end up leaving town. Thomas has three Pro Bowls and two First-Team All Pro honors to his name.

His best days are behind him, but it's hard to forget that he was one of the best wideouts in the game not too long ago. Nabers will 100 percent be the WR1 for this squad in '24, but if Thomas were to make his way to East Rutherford, he'd be a reliable target with a ton of experience. Prioritizing the secondary should be Schoen's focus, but Thomas might be a guy worth reaching out to as well.
