New York Giants: Sign Trai Turner
The New York Giants brought in new weapons for quarterback Daniel Jones in the form of free-agent receiver Kenny Golladay and first-round pick Kadarius Toney. However, if the Giants hope to see Jones succeed, they need to improve his offensive line.
Jones was sacked an alarming 45 times and had 11 fumbles in 14 games last season.
While the Giants get offensive tackle Nate Solder back after he opted out of the 2020 season, they also parted with starting guard Kevin Zeitler. Free agent Trai Turner could replace Zeitler and, ideally, help improve Jones’ interior pass protection.
Turner was limited by injuries to nine games in 2020, but he is a five-time Pro Bowler and only 27 years old.
Adding Turner would require New York to free up cap space as it has only $4.9 million available. It would be worth it, however, as protecting and developing Jones must be the franchise’s No. 1 goal in 2021.
With right guard having been the one position outside of potentially inside linebacker that the Giants did not immediately address in the 2021 offseason (as they got worse at the position after cutting Zeitler), former Dave Gettleman draft pick and Pro Bowler Trai Turner could b signed and be a upgrade right away.
Dan Duggan goes over the Giants’ 2021 free agency class, and what they will likely bring to the table in the upcoming season.
With the salary cap hits reduced as of yesterday, who might the Giants cut to save cash?
