Giants are in a good spot financially
With all of the money that the New York Giants have spent this offseason in free agency, it was looking like their salary cap situation may not be very good over the next few years.
Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus has released a salary cap analysis for all 32 NFL teams and ranked each team according to their cap health. The Giants have come in at number 13.
NEW YORK GIANTS – RANK: 13
Even with a huge spending spree this offseason on the likes of interior defender Leonard Williams, wide receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, among others, the Giants’ excellent draft trade with the Chicago Bears sets them up nicely going forward. The Giants now have flexibility depending on the progression, or lack thereof, of quarterback Daniel Jones.
If Jones struggles again in 2022, the Giants should be able to select a quarterback near the top of the draft, and if they need help moving up a bit, the Bears’ first-rounder will likely be a top-20 selection barring a great rookie season from Justin Fields.
I still wouldn’t expect the Giants to spend a lot of money next offseason. If we were to foreshadow what the Giants might need in 2022, it will likely be a quarterback and maybe a pair of offensive lineman. They could take care of both needs in the draft with all of the picks that they have.
If New York decide not to re-sign tight end Evan Engram that will save them some money as well. It will likely depend on if he bounces back after a tough year in 2020. With Kyle Rudolph under contract for two years, there’s no pressure to keep Engram.
