2. Pass-rusher Justin Houston

This isn't the first time we've mentioned Justin Houston as a possible target for the Giants, as signing him would make a ton of sense. There's no one out there with more experience than Houston, as he has proven time and time again that he can compete at a high level. The veteran standout is coming off a strong year with the Ravens, recording 9.5 sacks.

Yes, Houston's best football is behind him, but he's still a four-time Pro Bowler and he took home First Team All-Pro honors in 2014. That season, the sacks machine posted 22 - yup, he was a monster that fall and winter for the Kansas City Chiefs. Houston has 12 years of action under his belt and year No. 13 is on the way soon.

However, no one knows which team he'll end up suiting up for. Houston remains a free agent, but several Giants fans have been calling for Schoen to get him in town for a visit as soon as possible. Houston wouldn't break the bank with a one-year contract.

The Giants would still need to create some cap space to bring in a new edge-rusher, but something tells us Schoen isn't done making big moves this offseason. Adding someone like Houston would really be a blessing for defensive coordinator Wink Martindale and head man Brian Daboll.
