There is no such thing as a perfect player, as all athletes are both blessed with strengths and stricken with weaknesses.
It is the responsibility of the New York Giants scouting department to pinpoint all strengths and weaknesses of potential targets in free agency. Perhaps New York's scouts have reported their findings in the form of a list of pros and cons.
In this article I'll play scout. I'll borrow three free-agent targets named by Art Stapleton, the Giants beat writer for The Record, and I'll tack on two of my own. For each of these five targets, I'll list the pros and cons of bringing them to New York. I'll format their profiles as if they are a scout's report—complete with headshots.
There are four offensive players and one defensive player highlighted in this slideshow; which ones will the Giants pursue starting next Tuesday, March 11, when the unrestricted market opens?
