10 cheap free agent options the Giants could still add

Photo by Sean Gardner/ As expected, the New York Giants were busy in the 2020 free agency cycle. A defense that desperately needed to replenish talent was addressed by the following signings: Cornerback James Bradberry on a three-year $45 million deal, with $32 million guaranteed. Linebacker Blake Martinez to a 3-year $30 million deal, with $19 million guaranteed. Edge Kyler Fackrell — one-year $4.6 million. The Giants also slapped the franchise tag on defensive lineman Leonard Williams, which is costing the Giants $16.1 million this season. The Giants also added to their offense...

Valentine’s Views: Things I’m thinking about, including Jadaveon Clowney and Chase Young

Chase Young | Photo by Michael Hickey/ It’s time share some Sunday thoughts As free agency winds down and we creep closer to the NFL Draft, here are some things I’m thinking about. Jadaveon Clowney Many are clamoring for the Giants to rescind the franchise tag they placed on Leonard Williams and use that money to sign Jadaveon Clowney, easily the premier player remaining on the free agent market. With Clowney’s price tag apparently having dropped from $22 or $23 million annually, to somewhere around $17-18 million on a shorter-term deal that’s a move the Giants have to...

2020 NFL free agency: 4 lower-tier EDGE players who could interest the Giants

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Who could the Giants look at if they don’t want to pay Clowney? So far things have been a curious mix of busy and quiet for the New York Giants in free agency. They haven’t been silent, placing the franchise tag on Leonard Williams, placing a second-round tender on Aldrick Rosas, signing (in principle) cornerback James Bradberry, linebacker Blake Martinez, and tight end Levine Toilolo. But these moves haven’t been the needle-moving splash plays many expected from the Giants with over $75 million in cap space entering free agency. And as the...

The Chris and Joe Show: Reacting to the start of the negotiating window

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Recapping the first afternoon of legal tampering action The unofficial start to the NFL’s free agency period has been a wild one. The New York Giants got the day started by placing the non-exclusive franchise tag on defensive tackle Leonard Williams. The Arizona Cardinals stole the day’s headlines with a blockbuster (and roundly applauded, at least for their side of things) trade sending David Johnson to the Houston Texans for receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The Giants largely went quiet after tagging Williams and placing the second-round tender on kicker...

Report — New York Giants will franchise tag Leonard Williams

Report — New York Giants will franchise tag Leonard Williams

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Giants won’t let defensive lineman reach free agency Unwilling to let him enter free agency after surrendering two draft picks to get him at last season’s trade deadline, the New York Giants are expected to franchise tag defensive lineman Leonard Williams. The Giants gave the New York Jets a 2020 third-round pick (68th overall) and a conditional 2021 fifth-round pick. Various reports indicated that the tag does not change that conditional pick. A long-term deal between Williams and the Giants by the start of the league year would convert that to a fourth-round...

2020 NFL free agency: Target prices for players on Giants’ radar

Jadaveon Clowney | Photo by Dylan Buell/ Would you be in or out at these numbers? Former sports agent and current CBS Sports salary cap analyst Joel Corry has set what he calls “target prices” for many of the top defensive free agents set to hit the market next week. Let’s look at those prices for players the Giants could or should be interested in, along with my thoughts on whether the Giants should be in or out at that price. We will start with the Giants own free agent of interest. Leonard Williams Corry’s target: Contract package: $43.5 million for three years ($14.5...

Franchise tag deadline extended; What it means for the New York Giants

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The NFL has extended the deadline for using the franchise or transition tag from Thursday until Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET. The move was made with the vote on the newly-proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement still hanging in the balance. The NFLPA has extended the window for players to vote on the proposed CBS until Saturday night at 11:59 p.m. ET, which caused the move on the tag window. This could be good news for the Giants in their negotiations with free-agent-to-be defensive tackle Leonard Williams. A report broke Monday that Williams and the Giants are...

Leonard Williams | Photo by Rob Leiter/ “Strong” free agent market expected for defensive tackle With free agency approaching next week, things might be getting dicey between the New York Giants and free agent defensive tackle Leonard Williams. NFL insider Ian Rapoport tweeted Monday morning that “Sources say the two sides are not close on a contract extension and Williams will have a strong market. The tag is a possibility, but so is letting him hit the market.” The Giants, of course, made a much-criticized trade with the New York Jets to acquire Williams at last season’s...
