Not long ago, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs became Super Bowl champions for the third time in five years when they defeated the San Francisco 49ers. The game featured several standout players, many of whom are set to hit the open market as free agents this offseason.

Key free agents for both franchises include edge rusher-Chase Young, defensive tackles Javon Kinlaw and Chris Jones, and cornerback L'Jarius Sneed. A few former NY Giants are on both teams' free agent lists, including offensive lineman Jon Feliciano, safety Logan Ryan, and wide receiver Richie James.

With several of the league's best players set to hit the open market this offseason, we'll have to see if Brian Daboll and the G-Men pursue anyone from the big game. With that said, let's take a look at five Super Bowl free agents the Giants should try and get a deal done:

5. S Logan Ryan - San Francisco 49ers

If there's one former Giants player from the 49ers or Chiefs that Big Blue should consider a reunion with, it's Logan Ryan. The veteran safety is a two-time Super Bowl champion and has been in the league since 2013. Ryan spent two seasons in New York with the Giants in 2020 and 2021 before joining the Buccaneers in 2022 and the 49ers this past year.

Ryan was unsigned going into this past season and started thinking about retiring. Still, after receiving the call from the 49ers while on a cruise vacation with his family over Thanksgiving, the veteran defensive back knew this would be an opportunity he could not pass up. He even jokes about how, as soon as he learned San Francisco was interested in signing him, he started working out on the boat and getting in shape to return to football in Week 15.

Although the 33-year-old DB could likely retire this offseason, he may return to football for the 2024 season. If the Giants can't resign Xavier McKinney, Ryan is an option as someone they could pursue short-term as a replacement.
