New York Giants: A Position-by-Position Primer to Free Agency

It’s been quite a while since the New York Giants have had so many question marks at so many different positions.

Certainly, the injury bug has not been kind to the Giants, who last season led the NFL with 91 games lost by starters due to injury, per a study done by Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News.

Gosselin noted that in 2013, the Giants lost six 16-game starters from the 2012 season—safety Stevie Brown, offensive linemen David Baas and Chris Snee and fullback Henry Hynoski being among those starters lost.

Injury bug aside, the Giants will also have 23 unrestricted free agents and four restricted free agents, creating some glaring holes up and down the roster.

So when general manager Jerry Reese told the media at the end of last year that the front office has “some work to do,” he’s not kidding.

Fortunately, the annual free agency sweeps will offer the Giants—who currently have $116.507 million committed to 2014’s cap (per Over the Cap)—opportunities to fill some holes.

The Giants won't necessarily make a big-money splash—they rarely do. However, there are a number of quality free agents who, as of this writing, are not locks to re-sign with their current teams, and who could provide depth at cap-friendly prices for the Giants.

Here is my look at what positions I think the Giants will target in free agency, and the players that I think might be a fit for the openings.
