New York Giants: Top 5 Free-Agent Fits at Defensive End

Pass-rushers. The New York Giants need them, and they need them desperately.

In case you didn’t get a chance to watch much of the Giants’ 2015 season—and after a while, who could blame you if you chose to do something other than be frustrated by a team that oftentimes came so close yet was so far away from winning at least six games—New York’s defense finished dead last in the league, allowing a whopping 420.3 yards per game.

New York’s defense also finished dead last in third-down conversions, allowing opponents to convert on 47 percent of their third-down attempts.

The pass rush? What pass rush? The Giants managed 23.0 sacks, 30th in the league and just ahead of Buffalo (21.0) and Atlanta (19.0).

Let’s run down some names, in no particular order, that could be options.
