2. Winning the Danielle Hunter sweepstakes

In order for this to get done, the Giants are going to have to restructure the deals of Andrew Thomas and Dexter Lawrence (we assume they will), but keep an eye on Danielle Hunter. Not long ago, shortly after the NFL Combine, Pat Leonard said the Giants would target Hunter in free agency, along with Jonah Jackson.

Hunter is exactly the kind of edge-rusher the Giants need to bring to town to pair with Kayvon Thibodeaux. Thibodeaux is coming off a breakout year for the G-Men, posting 11.5 sacks. This nearly tripled his sacks total from his rookie season: he posted four in 2022. Now, picture him and Hunter going to work together on the outside?

Everyone has been hoping for Azeez Ojulari to live up to the hype. However, things have gone quite downhill for him ever since he recorded eight sacks during his rookie campaign. Ojulari can't stay on the field. Hunter finished with 16.5 sacks in 2023, which is enough to make GMs drool at the thought of him suiting up for them. Bring Hunter to NY, Mr. Schoen.
