As the New York Giants look for offensive help, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson is one potential target in free agency. 

Per Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media, the Giants are "expected to pursue" the Kansas City Chiefs wideout this offseason. 

The Giants got an encouraging performance from quarterback Daniel Jones as a rookie. He completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,027 yards and 24 touchdowns in 13 games. 

New head coach Joe Judge will be tasked with developing Jones into a franchise quarterback and turning the Giants around after three straight losing seasons, including a 4-12 record in 2019. 

Jones was able to put up those numbers despite Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard missing a combined 17 games because of injuries. Golden Tate began the season with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substances policy. 

Darius Slayton emerged as a deep threat on the outside. The 23-year-old tied for ninth in the NFL with eight receiving touchdowns and tied for 16th with 15.4 yards per reception. 

Robinson has spent the past four seasons with the Chiefs. He's been used on the outside and in the slot for head coach Andy Reid. The Florida alum set career highs in 2019 with 32 receptions, 449 yards and 14 yards per catch. 

Free agency officially begins March 18 at 4 p.m. ET.
