Good morning, New York Giants fans!
“Keep your mouth shut and play ball!”
Best case: Sign at least one reliable veteran interior offensive lineman and draft a promising offensive lineman in Round 1
Worst case: Do nothing in free agency
The new regime in New York inherited a bad cap situation, which is going to prevent the franchise from making any major moves in free agency. Whatever the Giants have left to spend after getting back in positive territory should be dedicated to cheap options along the interior offensive line. Patriots guard Ted Karras is one potential option. He was the 16th-highest graded guard in 2021 and shouldn’t command a big payday.
The team has some clear needs on defense at edge defender and off-ball linebacker. The Giants will likely attack one of those spots with either the No. 5 or No. 7 overall picks, but the other should be used on the offensive line. Either Evan Neal of Alabama, Charles Cross of Mississippi State or Ikem Ekwonu of North Carolina State should be there for New York.
Martindale doubled down on his promise to play aggressive defense.
New OC Mike Kafka says Daniel Jones is “athletic and can make every throw.”
NYJ & NYG could be pivotal players in trade market. If you want to trade for a vet QB (Watson, Wilson or Rodgers), they could be the middleman & supply picks for proven player(s).— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) February 16, 2022
