Bargain free agents could help the Giants
The New York Giants have a couple of free agent options that could help them bolster their roster heading into the 2021 NFL season. Below are a pair of defenders that could fix some of their most glaring needs.
Edge Tyus Bowser
One position of need that I think the Giants will look to fill in free agency is at edge rusher. One player that is an interesting prospect is Tyus Bowser of the Baltimore Ravens. He was taken in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft
Bowser won’t cost much but there is a chance he could either become a very good pass rusher or a back-up. The Giants wouldn’t have to spend too much money to find out.
Bowser’s PFF grade from 2020 was a 70.2 after only recording two sacks on the season. But then again he’s only started two games during his career. He could flourish under more playing time.
CB Troy Hill
Hill mostly played nickel for the Los Angeles Rams, but when they moved him to the outside oppisite of Jaylen Ramsey he played very well in 2020. He could be an inexpensive option for the Giants who need a number two corner.
The only issue with Hill is that he turns 30 years-old before next season, but that is also why New York won’t have to pay a lot to sign him. He had an overall PFF grade of 74.2, which is pretty solid ranking.
