With the 2024 NFL offseason fully underway, the New York Giants are looking to return to their 2022 form. The biggest area for improvement is undoubtedly the offensive line. With Carmen Bricillo hopping on board as the new offensive line coach, there is no doubt that he will need more talented players up front to create a formidable unit.
While it looks like Daniel Jones will remain at the helm, at least to start 2024, protecting him is of the utmost importance to let his abilities truly show. Here are four offensive linemen the Giants could add via trade to help what was the worst pass-blocking offensive line unit in the NFL last season.
4. Garett Bolles
Despite improvement from the previous year, the Denver Broncos struggled in 2024 and saw their season end with their $245 million quarterback sitting on the bench. With disarray all over and needing to cut just over $24 million just to become cap-compliant, many guys will be on the move from the Mile High City.
With rumors swirling of a potential release of Russell Wilson, which would create an additional $50 million in dead cap, many big names may be up for grabs. Garett Boles, a long-tenured Bronco, showed frustration toward the end of the year and could've seen the seventh season in Denver be his last. Bolles was quoted saying this towards the end of the season, as the Broncos' playoff hopes fell to zero.
"I've been a Bronco for seven years, and all I've done is lost."
Coming off a Walter Payton Man of the Year nomination, Bolles can immediately become a leader on a young team and be a true asset at right tackle. This move would even save the Broncos $15 million in cap space next season. With 2024 being the final year of Bolles's four-year contract, the Giants could reap the benefits of having a stud opposite of Andrew Thomas and hope to re-sign him on a more team-friendly deal next offseason.
