ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter said the weeks after the lockout is resolved and before training camp are going to be the craziest in NFL history.
Teams are going to be jamming six months of signing and evaluating free agents in to a two week window—needless to say the NFL front offices are going to have some 20-hour days.
For the New York Giants, the task becomes clear. They have to hold on to as many as their big name free agents as they can, while also having backup plans.
Teams are said to have three days after the lockout ends to sign their own free agents, after which time hell will break loose and teams can sign anyone.
During those three days, the Giants will be looking to re-sign big name free agents like Steve Smith, Mathias Kiwanuka, Barry Cofield, Kevin Boss and Ahmad Bradshaw.
Obviously the Giants won't be able to give big money to all of these players, so it will be interesting to see which one(s) is(are) left out.
But who will be on the Giants list of free agents from other teams? There are many great players hitting the market this year, especially on defense. Let's look at the odds that the Giants sign some of these high profile guys.
