T Will Beatty (unrestricted)
Beatty held down the left tackle position nicely for the Giants and is one of the most important re-signings the Giants must make this offseason to keep the offensive line on track.
With a history of injuries, New York should be able to retain the 27-year-old, which is good news for Eli Manning & Co.
G Kevin Boothe (unrestricted)
We shouldn't even be discussing whether Boothe will be back in blue next season, because he definitely deserves to be.
Along with Beatty, Boothe was certainly a positive aspect of the Giants offensive line.
TE Martellus Bennett (unrestricted)
I would hope Jerry Reese isn't blind enough to take away one of Manning's favorite targets.
Bennett proved this season he can be an effective starting TE in the NFL by collecting 55 receptions for 626 yards and five touchdowns.
S Stevie Brown (restricted)
Stevie Brown was hands-down New York's best defender, intercepting eight passes and forcing two fumbles.
If he's re-signed, Brown should be the Giants' starting safety in 2013.
RB Andre Brown (restricted)
Eight touchdowns on just 73 attempts in a mere 10 games?
Despite the broken leg, Brown must be in New York next season to spell Bradshaw.
TE Bear Pascoe (restricted)
Bennett is undoubtedly deserving of the starting tight end spot, but Bear Pascoe is a fantastic run-blocker and the Giants should be able to sign him for cheap.
QB David Carr (unrestricted)
I think Carr knows he's not going to start in the NFL and he knows New York's offense in and out.
God forbid Manning gets hurt, I'd have faith in Carr.
K Lawrence Tynes (unrestricted)
Tynes missed a few field goals down the stretch, and while I do think the Giants should either sign a kicker in free agency or find one in the draft, if they don't, Tynes should be back.
He was more than solid for most of the season and has proven he can make big kicks for the G-Men in the past.
LB Chase Blackburn (unrestricted)
Say what you want about Blackburn and the Giants' linebacking corps, but Blackburn was New York's best LB this season.
Mark Herzlich may be ready to take over at MLB, but you can never have enough depth at the position—for the right price, of course.
