3. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Kansas City Chiefs

Another option for the Giants to pursue is Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who will be a free agent this offseason. Big Blue will prioritize re-signing Saquon Barkley before making any decisions on the running back position; however, if they cannot re-sign Saquon, then CEH could be a good fit.

The Chiefs running back is now a two-time Super Bowl champion and has had great success since he arrived in 2020. While Edwards-Helaire served as the backup running back for Isaiah Pacheco this past season, the 24-year-old RB may look to earn a starting role somewhere else.

If he doesn't sign with the Giants, I could see the Bengals also being in the race to land the veteran running back because of the LSU connection. In college, Edwards-Helaire played with Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase and was on the 2019 team that won the National Championship.

Regardless of where Edwards-Helaire plays next season, I expect his role to increase and for him to join a team looking to contend. If the Giants want to improve their running back depth and Barkley does walk in free agency, CEH would be an excellent fit for New York and take on a significant role with the Giants.
