2. WR Davante Adams

Considering that Davante Adams left a favorable situation in Green Bay in order to play with Derek Carr in Las Vegas, it wouldn't surprise us one bit to see him request yet another trade now that Carr is gone and the Raiders look as lost as ever.

Adding Adams to this Giants roster would give them the WR1 they've desperately been asking for. Not only would he be arguably the best receiver the team has ever seen, but he'd elevate the offense to one of the best units in the league.

Through 17 games last season, Adams caught 100 passes for 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns. Keep in mind that these numbers came with a Raiders team that won just six games due to some mediocre QB play from Carr and Jarrett Stidham. With that in mind, we can only imagine what he'd do with the better team, playing alongside a better quarterback.

Similar to Baker, the Giants would have to create some cap space in order to bring Adams in. Not only does he have a $25 million cap hit this season, but if the Giants choose to not let him go after the 2024 season, Adams will have a cap hit of $44 million for two seasons. It will be tough to bring Adams in. However, this sort of player is exactly what the Giants could use to boost their Super Bowl odds.
