With the offseason coming closer and closer to its end, it's doubtful that we see the NY GIants make too many big moves prior to the start of the 2023 season. With that in mind, we think it's a good idea to give our grades on some of the calls Joe Schoen made in the past couple of months.

Whether it be making a big splash via a trade or free agency, securing a stud in a key position through the draft, or making some important coaching decisions, Schoen had quite a busy time after the Giants' playoff run. With that being said, here are our grades on the decisions made by the Giants this offseason:

NY Giants free agency grade: A

In a season with limited cap space and plenty of players to re-sign, Schoen put on an absolute masterclass. Not only did he acquire players in key positions, but he also did so without crippling the NY Giants financially.

Heading into 2023, some of the biggest gaps on the Giants' roster were wide receiver, linebacker, and defensive line depth. What did Schoen do with this information? Sign Bobby Okereke, Parris Campbell, A'Shawn Robinson, and Rakeem Nunez-Roches. These are just the big names as well, not even mentioning the countless amount of depth signings Schoen made.

What makes these big-time signings even better is that they are all at a great value. Okereke is slated to make around $10 million a season, Campbell is on a one-year, $5 million prove-it deal, Nunez-Roches is making around $4 million per year, and Robinson has a cap hit of $2 million this season.

Not only did Schoen acquire some big-time players in positions of need, but he also made a multitude of great depth signings. Players like Bobby McCain, Amani Oruwariye, and Jamison Crowder aren't going to start, but will easily play roles as key depth players on both sides of the ball.
