As the New York Giants 2014 roster starts to fall into place, there will be loads of opportunities for various players who perhaps had minor roles last year to step up and contribute on more of a full-time basis this coming season.
The biggest number of opportunities would appear to be on the offensive side of the ball, where the Giants continue to build a new offense that will likely be a combination of what they ran in the past and what new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo came from in Green Bay.
Of course, it helps that McAdoo, in a February conference call with reporters, said, “everyone comes in with a clean slate.” That’s good news for some players who, to date, haven’t contributed much for whatever the reason.
While the offense will probably have the most turnover, the defense will also be looking at a couple of guys from last year to step up and play bigger roles as well.
Here’s a look at five players from last year's roster that could be looking at bigger roles in 2014.
