With the calendar reading May, it doesn't take a lot to get people fired up for the new football season to get here. Luckily, the NY Giants are hard at work at OTAs, with new pass-rusher Brian Burns fitting in nicely already with his Big Blue teammates.

The Giants made quite the splash this offseason in trading for Burns, one of the best pass-rushers in the game. Him making plays along with Kayvon Thibodeaux? Yes please. Right now, Burns is turning heads in East Rutherford and fans are loving it. It's not a ton, but the slow-motion clip the Giants shared of their new No. 0 has people pumped. He looks like a natural:

Brian Burns is primed to have a monster year for the NY Giants in 2024

A simple agility drill to get us excited - why the heck not? After the awful year the Giants posted in 2023, it's time to appreciate any optimism that surrounds this team. It goes without saying, but Burns now in New Jersey should have a lot of people happy.

Azeez Ojulari has showcased potential early on in his career, highlighted by his eight sacks during his rookie campaign. However, he's battled injuries the past two years and Brian Daboll can no longer rely on him to stay healthy throughout the fall and winter.

Because of that, adding someone like Burns is going to help the pass-rush, which already features Thibodeaux and Dexter Lawrence, tremendously. Thibodeaux posted a career-high 11.5 sacks last season, while Lawrence has been one of the best defensive tackles the past two years.

Burns was a standout for the Panthers before making his way to NY, highlighted by two Pro Bowl honors. Now that he's with the Giants, Burns is facing a lot of pressure, especially after earning a $141 million deal from Schoen. We have a feeling he'll get the job done and be a nightmare for opposing linemen to deal with in '24. As he said, the sky's the limit for him and the Giants pass-rush.
