This week, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the oral arguments against the ruling that placed the NFL lockout back in effect; many sources say this essentially means nothing since they won't make a decision.
However, it could be a step in the right direction for the players and owners to eventually sit down and knock this thing out.
When that happens, the free-agency frenzy will begin.
The New York Giants haven't been linked to any major names on the market despite so many of their own players becoming free agents.
Obviously the Giants could be looking at every free-agent name available for their positions of need, but for this article, I've narrowed the list down to eight of the best names out there.
Now, admittedly, many of these guys are very good players who could be high priorities to re-sign for their current teams, but if the NFL keeps the same rules as 2010, then all of these guys would be free agents, according to a list by NFL.com and WalterFootball.com.
