According to Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com, the Giants could end up showing interest in free agent wide receivers Julian Edelman, Golden Tate and Dexter McCluster in hopes of improving their kick return game in 2014.
Mentioned this on NFL Insiders on Thursday, but it bears noting as the New York Giants get going on their offseason that they are determined to upgrade their kick-return and punt-return game. The Giants ranked 27th in the league in kick-return yardage per game and 26th in punt-return yardage per game in 2013, and when free agency opens March 11 they could have their eyes on some guys with return experience. They’re looking for wide receiver help anyway, so free agents like Julian Edelman, Golden Tate and Dexter McCluster could rank higher on their wish list than they might as receivers alone. They looked into signing Josh Cribbs last year and didn’t do it, so you know this is on their radar.
