Giants are finally full of weapons on offense
When looking at the current NFL offseason, the New York Giants have to have the most improved offense in the league after adding Kenny Golladay, John Ross, Kadarius Toney and Kyle Rudolph.
Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus wrote an article detailing which teams have the most improved receiving corps and the Giants are number two on the list. Here’s what he wrote:
Kenny Golladay was the last true X receiver on the free-agent market after Allen Robinson and Chris Godwin had received the franchise tag. He is the kind of player the Giants were missing in 2020. Golladay’s 53 contested catches over the past three seasons are second only to Robinson at the position, even with all the missed time in 2020. He’s a downfield, jump-ball threat Jones can trust in 50-50 situations.
The Giants followed that splash free-agent signing by spending their first-round pick on another wide receiver. Per Zack Rosenblatt, Toney said that he models his game after Alvin Kamara, and like Kamara, his after-the-catch ability is rare. That’s something New York needed to add at wide receiver. The Giants’ wide receivers averaged 3.0 yards after the catch per reception in 2020, dead last in the NFL. Toney should help turn that number around.
Veteran free-agent additions like Kyle Rudolph and John Ross round out the new incoming class. Now, the Giants have to figure out how to keep Jones upright with a questionable offensive line in front of him.
Linsey actually has the New York Jets above the Giants at number one, but the Jets don’t have a clear cut number one receiver like Golladay. They added Keelan Cole, Corey Davis and Elijah Moore, but none of them are proven number one targets at the NFL level.
Behind the Giants at number three are the Baltimore Ravens, four is the Miami Dolphins and five is the New England Patriots.
