New York Giants: 5 'Forgotten' Players Looking to Contribute in 2014

It’s hard not to like what New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese has done this offseason in free agency.

Embarrassed by last year’s personnel shortcomings that contributed to a 7-9 record, Reese has gone on a spending spree like none other in his tenure as general manager. According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Reese has dropped more than $111 million on 23 players, including 13 newcomers signed from other teams.

With the addition of several new guys combined with the return of about 10 players from last season, there will be competition at almost every position, be it for a starting job or for a backup spot.

In looking at how the depth chart is starting to fill out, there are some players that, at one time, showed enough promise to earn a roster spot with the Giants. These days, however, those players seem to be something of an afterthought when evaluating the depth of the various units.

That brings me to my list of five players who really aren't mentioned much when talking about the competitions that are set to kick off this summer. These are players whose future with the team could go either way, depending on how well they perform and how injuries affect the depth around them.

So without any further delay, here’s my list of five “forgotten” Giants who will be looking to contribute to the 2014 season.
