With around $33 million in cap space now available thanks to the historic spike, the NY Giants are likely going to be busy this free agency trying to fill the many holes this roster has. Some have speculated that Joe Schoen could sign big names like Mike Evans or Josh Allen, however, these aren't the most realistic options on the board.

Regardless of that, there are a few free agents that seem pretty realistic for the Giants. Not only do they make sense financially, but some may also have a history with the team's coaching staff. Will Schoen end up landing any of these guys?

4. DE Denico Autry

He may be a little older than some Giants fans would like, but if the team can add a pass-rusher like Denico Autry to play alongside Kayvon Thibodeaux and Dexter Lawrence, the whole defense would benefit immensely. While previously, we would not have suspected Autry to go all the way from Tennessee to New York, the addition of Shane Bowen may have moved the needle.

Under Bowen, Autry had his best years as a pass-rusher, so we wouldn't be surprised if the 33-year-old stud wants to stick with his defensive coordinator. Alongside this, Autry would work for New York financially, as his most recent contract had him making around $7 million.

Last season, Autry racked up 50 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and 53 pressures. This was arguably Autry's best season as a pro and he did it in Year 10, so it's pretty clear that he still has plenty left in the tank.

Autry was incredible on a pretty weak Titans pass-rushing unit last season, so now imagine what he could do when playing alongside Thibodeaux and Lawrence, two guys who attract tons of attention from opposing offenses.
