The New York Giants are among all but two of the NFL's 32 teams to have entered the eight-month recharge known as the offseason; the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos still have to square off at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, for Super Bowl XLVIII in a couple weekends.
A mostly battered New York team remains from the letdown of its 2013 campaign, in which the Giants had the most games lost by starters due to injury, according to Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News. The squad will likely receive a facelift this offseason, but co-owner and team CEO John Mara, general manager Jerry Reese and the rest of the Giants' front office will need to be thrifty.
Financially, the Giants are currently not in great shape. According to this NFLPA public salary-cap report, the team only has $17,447.00 in cap room. Reese will need to be creative to maximize the team's funds and remain competitive in free agency this offseason.
This article will highlight the seven most cost-effective moves the Giants can make this offseason.
