4) Signing LB Bobby Okereke

Finally, the NY Giants have a star linebacker in Bobby Okereke. The former Stanford star who showed out with the Indianapolis Colts over the last couple of seasons is ready to make an impact in New York. The team’s brass inked the linebacker to a four-year deal, addressing a position Giants fans have been begging them to for multiple seasons.

Linebacker was easily one of, if not the weakest position group for the team last season. Over and over again the group was exposed, and it showed when the Giants faced teams like the division rival Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.

Over four seasons with the Colts, Okereke accumulated 420 total tackles, four forced fumbles, two sacks and three interceptions. Additionally, he’s played in every game over the last two seasons, proving he’s reliable as anyone.

Instead of veteran retreads and rookies who have difficulty adjusting, the Giants have given Wink Martindale a star in the making at linebacker. That’s essential to his operation, and something the franchise should see immediate results from in 2023.
