The New York Giants have been quiet on what they plan on doing the 2021 NFL offseason. New York shut down the idea of them entering the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes. The Giants have a big need at the wide receiver position and if there was a year to look for a wide receiver this is the season.
New York also have needs for a linebacker and cornerback this off-season. If the Giants are looking to fill their needs through the 2021 free agency period, they should look at these three free agents to add to their roster.
Top three NFL free agents the New York Giants should pursue:
1) Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers needing to sign Lavonte David, Leonard Fournette, Shaquil Barrett and Rob Gronkowski it may leave Chris Godwin out. This is where the New York Giants can step in. Chris Godwin could give the Giants a big boost at the wide receiver position.
The New York Giants could fall into a situation where they have to pick between Leonard Williams and Godwin. Chris Godwin is not going to be a cheap sign for the Giants. If they can figure out a way to add him they will have a big boost and could be the boost they need to make the playoffs.
2) Troy Hill, CB, Los Angeles Rams
Troy Hill came up big for the Los Angeles Rams during the 2020-2021 NFL season. Hill recorded 77 total tackles, 10 pass deflections, three interceptions and two touchdowns. The New York Giants defense could use that type of production from a defensive back.
The Giants gave up a total of 4,129 yards to wide receivers during the 2020-2021 season and also gave up 22 touchdowns. New York's secondary also intercepted 11 passes. Troy Hill will give the Giants a cornerback that has a nose for the football, especially since he has intercepted seven passes during his six years in the NFL.
3) Haason Reddick, LB, Arizona Cardinals
Haason Reddick is coming off the best season of his four-year career in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals and recorded 12.5 sacks for the Cardinals defense in 2020. In four-years, Haason Reddick has racked up 255 total tackles and 33 tackles for loss.
The New York Giants could really use the services of Haason Reddick at their outside linebacker position. Reddick got to the quarterback 16 times during the 2020 NFL season. The New York Giants could make a strong run at Reddick in the offseason.
