New York Giants: 8 Offseason Predictions

The New York Giants may be the team with the most intriguing off-season out of anyone in the NFL.

The New York Giants are coming off a 5-11 season. This record is unexpectable when playing in the world’s biggest market in New York.

In fact, the last seven seasons have been failures by the Giants’ standards. Since winning Super Bowl 46 in Feb. 2012, the Giants have only played in one playoff game (2016 Wild Card at Green Bay).

New York is onto their third head coach since 2015, as Pat Shurmur enters his second year at the helm.

The team already made their first major move of the off-season by trading pass-rusher Oliver Vernon to the Browns for offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler.

As the Giants look to make it back to the postseason, this is only one of the  handful of moves likely to be made this off-season.

Here are nine off-season predictions for them:

New York will keep Eli Manning

Both Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman have made it clear they still believe in the two-time Super Bowl MVP. It seems the Giants will install the Kansas City plan in 2019 by starting Manning while drafting and grooming his eventual successor.

Landon Collins will sign elsewhere

The Giants elected not to use the franchise tag on the three-time Pro Bowler. Collins took to social media to say his goodbyes to the Big Apple; thus, it appears Collins will not return.

Odell Beckham won’t be traded

Even with Saquon Barkley in town, Odell Beckham Jr. is the face of the Giants franchise. The organization has invested too much time and money to let the star receiver go.

Daryl Williams will come to New York

New York does not have too much cap space this off-season, but enough to fill the biggest hole on the offensive line. Daryl Williams is among the NFL’s better right tackles. With the addition of Kevin Zeitler right tackle is the final position the Giants need to fill up-front. Gettleman is the man who drafted Williams in Carolina, so there is already an established relationship that will make negotiations go smoothly.

The Giants also will also snag Tre Boston

With Landon Collins on his way out and the Giants not wanting to pay big bucks for a safety, former Cardinal Tre Boston seems to be a good fit for the Giants in free agency.

Dwayne Haskins will be drafted sixth overall

The Giants need to find Eli Manning’s successor. There’s no better pro-style quarterback in the upcoming draft than Dwayne Haskins. Even if the Giants keep Manning, they need to draft Haskins so he can begin to learn after the legendary Manning.

New York adds two cornerbacks who will see playing time in 2019

New York traded Eli Apple to the Saints last season, leaving the team in need of a No. 2 cornerback this off-season. With B.W. Webb unlikely to return, that leaves the Giants with only one proven cornerback in Janoris Jenkins. Look for Big Blue to add two corners this off-season, either through the draft or free agency.

Sterling Shepard gets an extension

The Giants need to surround their future quarterback with as much talent as possible. Thus, they cannot let Sterling Sheppard come off the books after the 2019 season. Look for the Giants to extend the receiver this offseason.

The “11” personnel effect: Time to Implement a Middle Pass Rush

The game of football is both simple and nuanced. It has evolved much in the last 40 years. Ever since Don Coryell aired it out in San Diego and Bill Walsh created the West Coast Offense, you could begin to see a slow shift from a run-based offense to a pass-based one. As it has shifted so has the offense, and now it’s time to focus on a pass rush up the middle instead of the edge.
