Did the New York Giants have the NFL’s best offseason?

by Administrator | post a comment

The New York Giants have received no shortage of praise for the moves they’ve made this offseason. 

The G-Men already look like a completely different team under new general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur. Big Blue has rebuilt their offensive line through free agency and the draft. They’ve added instant playmakers to both sides of the ball and even made an upgrade at punter. 

Former Dallas Cowboys vice president of player personnel and current NFL Network analyst Gil Brandt thinks the Giants had the league’s best offseason.

He notes both the additions of Shurmur and Gettleman and the personnel decisions to the two have made since. The acquisitions of Nate Solder, Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, and Alec Ogletree are expected to immediately help the Giants compete in the NFC East. 

Brandt isn’t the only one praising Big Blue’s offseason. NFL Network draft analyst Lance Zierlein gave the G-Men the No. 1 spot on his draft class power rankings. 

The Giants clearly added value with their picks. Only time will tell if they made the right decision passing on a quarterback at No. 2 overall. 

There’s definitely an argument to be made that Big Blue had the league’s best offseason. But there are other teams that have made significant improvements as well.

The Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, and Chicago Bears all improved their rosters through free agency and the draft.
