2. EDGE Bryce Huff

One of the more underrated edge-rushers for this free agency class has to be undrafted phenom Bryce Huff. He's already familiar with the area considering he's spent each of his first four seasons with the Jets, but with some apparent disconnect between the two sides on a contract extension, he could look to switch sides and join the Giants.

He may not be a super cheap option like Risner, but Huff would certainly bring a ton of power off the edge that New York's defense desperately needs across from Kayvon Thibodeaux. Not only would Huff provide that, but compared to what some other elite edge-rushers will be getting paid this offseason, he could be cheap relative to talent.

In 17 games this season, Huff racked up 10 sacks, 67 pressures, 29 combined tackles, and 10 tackles for loss. Considering how stacked the Jets' defense was last season, it's pretty impressive to see Huff, who was a UDFA out of Memphis back in 2020, stand tall amongst the rest.
