With NY Giants minicamp having wrapped up on Wednesday, this squad will now get a break, but there's plenty of work to do before training camp arrives. Joe Schoen has already been incredibly busy in recent months, but now is not the time to slow down.

Schoen's made some incredible moves in order to improve the Giants' roster this offseason. Despite that, there's still a long list of things to get done. In this piece, we take a look at four priorities in particular for Schoen to focus on:

4. Inquire about other team's top receivers

One of the biggest holes on the Giants really ever since they traded away Odell Beckham Jr. is the team's lack of a dominant WR1. While they've had some solid pass-catchers fill this role and do decently, it hasn't been enough to propel the Giants' offense to a top core in the league.

However, this offseason, it seems as if the Giants could find their guy through the trade market. While nothing is guaranteed, Schoen should absolutely be picking up the phone in order to try and acquire a big-time receiver. Names like Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, and others all very well could be traded for prior to the start of the season.

Alongside this, even if they don't trade for someone, DeAndre Hopkins is still available as a free agent. While his price tag may be too much to sign, there's still a chance for Schoen to bring the All-Pro receiver in on a team-friendly deal.

It won't be cheap, but if Schoen manages to bring in a genuine top talent at WR, it could be enough to push the Giants into Super Bowl contention. They already made a good push into the playoffs last season, so adding someone like Adams or Diggs alongside the acquisitions Schoen has already made could just be enough.
