Giants Making Potential Splashes in Free Agency

After disappointing 7-9 2013 season in which they finished third in the NFC East, GM Jerry Reese has made it clear that the New York Giants have a multitude of positions that need to be upgraded. The biggest team needs have been looked at so far during the premature stages, and those are at Running Back, Offensive Line, and Defensive Line.

So far today, the biggest moves today have been with the team signing RB Peyton Hillis to a two-year $1.8 million dollar contract, and impending talks with former Raiders RB Rashad Jennings. Although they do still have 2012 first round pick David Wilson, they seem to be looking to adding players that have specific skill sets that will compliment with others at the position. Wilson has great speed, Hillis has power and ability to block, and if signed, Jennings has versatility to do multiple things in the West Coast offense.

Addressing the offensive line, they cut David Bass, and look to be targeting one of two free agent centers, Evan Dietrich-Smith from the Packers, or Brian De La Puente of the Saints. Many have contemplated the idea of using their draft picks on the O-Line in the draft. With the #12 pick, possible players such as Zack Martin (Notre Dame), Taylor Lewan (Michigan), or Jake Matthews (Texas A&M) at the tackle position. In the 2nd round, maybe look to the Offensive Guard position for someone like David Yankey (Stanford).

Justin Tuck, a two-time Super Bowl Champion with the Giants, wanted to test the Free Agent market, but hasn’t gotten the attention or money that he has received. It looks like he may sign back with the Giants, and return to his spot as a pass rusher opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.

UPDATE:

*Giants have reportedly signed OG Geoff Schwartz* – 5 P.M. EST

*Giants have reportedly signed RB Rashad Jennings* – 5:15 P.M. EST
