The first day is always a lot of fun.
The very first day of NFL free agency has been nothing short of hot and heavy.
For the New York Giants, they brought back a former player and lost a starter.
The latest now, according to Dan Hellie of NBC 4 in Washington, is that the Giants are interested in DeAngelo Hall.

Hall was just released on Monday by the Washington Redskins after spending five seasons with the team.
After the Giants won the Super Bowl in 2007, there were some whispers of the Giants looking into pursuing a deal for Hall when he was with Oakland, but a deal never happened.
In 2012, Hall had 90 total tackles with four interceptions and a sack in 16 games for the NFC East champions.
With the Giants in need of secondary help, it makes sense that the Giants are interested in Hall.
As of right now, the Giants have Terrell Thomas, Corey Webster, Prince Amukamara and Jayron Hosley, as well as the recent addition of Ross.
However, Thomas could have to move to safety due to his two recent ACL surgeries on his knee.
However, because he's an established name and corner, it makes sense that he has interest from quite a few other teams around the league.
It's not known what kind of deal Hall is looking for as a free agent, if the Giants are really willing to dish out money to get someone like him, and if they would be willing to outbid other teams to get him.
I'll be curious to see if this interest goes anywhere for the Giants surrounding Hall.
However, it adds another part to a very interesting and very exciting first day of free agency in the NFL.
Stay tuned, Giants fans.
