3. WR/KR Jamal Agnew

Jamal Agnew is one of the more interesting players in the NFL. His usage over the years has made him one of the more sought-after utility players in the league. Not only can he field punts and return kicks, but he has had moments where the Jaguars have used him as a receiver and it works in their favor more often than not.

This doesn't mean the Giants should make Agnew a primary receiving option if they sign him, but it could provide more versatility to an offense in desperate need of it. Alongside this, Agnew could finally bring some much-needed stability at the returner spot for the first time since Dwayne Harris.

In 11 games last season, Agnew caught 14 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown as a receiver, averaging 16.1 yards per reception. As a returner, Agnew fielded 14 punts for 144 yards and returned 15 kicks for 391 yards. While the limited games kept him out of the Pro Bowl, these numbers already aren't far off from his 2022 Pro Bowl season, so imagining him playing a full season has us very excited.

If used properly, Agnew could be a cheap, dynamic player who would provide a ton for the Giants on special teams and on offense. Who knows if this will be what Schoen is looking for in free agency, but if it is, Agnew might just be his guy.
