Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com believes the Giants will be very active in free agency this offseason.
I would expect them to be very active early in free agency, and I think the focus must and will be on the offensive line. Sure, they’ll poke around at tight end and receiver and on the defensive line. But their offensive line needs are so significant that they absolutely have to get major, 2014-focused work done on it before the draft. I expect them to target-specific players at center and guard that they have determined fit what they want to do on offense, and to sign at least one early in the free-agency period. That’s not to say they can’t and won’t use the draft to help the offensive line as well. Their long-term needs there are great enough that they should. They need to re-stock the pipeline with quality depth. But they can’t wait until the draft and hope they find all of their answers there. With Chris Snee and David Baas likely to be cut and Kevin Boothe a free agent, they need three new starters on the line.
I don’t agree with Graziano. I’m not sure how New York will be active in free agency when they don’t have a lot of money under the cap and they must re-sign defensive tackle Linval Joseph.
