How can the New York Giants right their ship and be contenders for the 2020 NFL season? Well, it all starts with their offseason moves. Armed with the 4th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Giants have a few holes they will need to fill. Will they go receiver, tight end, defensive line, cornerback or somewhere else? However, the draft is not the only place where they can get talent.

The Giants will enter the offseason with $61M at their disposal. With that much stock in the bank, the Giants can make a couple of moves to plug some of the holes on their team. But which direction will they go in? Will it go toward the offensive or defensive side of the ball? Here are 3 free agents for the New York Giants to target this offseason.

Blake Bortles (QB) Los Angeles Rams

While there are other capable QBs on the market, some are starters while others are career backups but less than a handful can be trusted if forced into action. Bortles, for all his flaws, has been in the fire before and won. His downfall has been epic but if needed for a game or two, he can pick up the win. For his career, Bortles has passed for 17,659 yards, 103 touchdowns, and 75 interceptions while completing 59.3 percent of his passes.

With the retirement of Eli Manning, there is no need to draft another young QB. Jones must have a veteran standing behind him but not one that poses as a great to take his job and stunt his growth. Bortles has to know that he’s now a career backup. While staying with the Rams may seem logical, the Giants may want to outbid the Rams for Bortles’ services.

Amari Cooper (WR) Dallas Cowboys

Copper is a hot commodity this offseason. And with teams in need of a veteran presence at the WR position, he won’t be unemployed for long. In 2019, the Giants were led by Darius Slayton with 48 receptions for 740 yards and eight touchdowns. If they can somehow land Cooper, that will give second-year starter Daniel Jones the security blanket he didn’t have his rookie year.

The Giants finished the year ranked 18th in passing yards with a makeshift of talent that included Slayton, Golden Tate, and Sterling Shepard. Cooper caught 85 passes for 1089 yards and six touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys. His price tag won’t be cheap. According to Spotrac, his Market Value is in the range of $19M per season. But with the Giants sitting on $61M in the bank, this is a very doable move.

Jadeveon Clowney (DE) Seattle Seahawks

The Giants must find a pass rusher. Last season, the D-Line registered 36 sacks and in a division where QBs rule (except Washington), the Giants must do better at sacking their opponents. With Clowney available and possibly looking to escape the Seattle Seahawks, it would be wise to get the one-time defensive force. Injuries have derailed a once-promising career but Clowney can still be productive.

While with the Seahawks in 2019, Clowney registered 31 tackles and three sacks. It may be hard prying him away from the Seahawks or any other contender but the Giants do have the money and feel that they’re building something special there. The age-old motto is that defense wins championships and Dave Gettleman has been a mastermind in doing so dating back to his time with the Carolina Panthers. Can lightning strike twice?
