Offseason Blueprint: Giants
By Dan Graziano ESPN.com
Our Insider team has offered up offseason blueprints for all 32 NFL teams, and you can look at the New York Giants' blueprint right here . It touches on front-office priorities, the cap situation, possible free-agent targets, and ways in which they might get help from the development of players on the current roster.
I particularly liked KC Joyner's list of possible free-agent targets, which include guard Geoff Schwartz, tight end Jermichael Finley, and wide receiver Dexter McCluster. As KC mentions, McCluster doesn't offer much as a downfield threat, but it's possible that new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo has a use for a guy who can make people miss after the catch the way McCluster can. Also, he would instantly elevate the Giants' kick-return game from one of the worst in the league to one of the most dangerous.
