The Giants’ Stellar Offseason
Despite missing out on a couple of free agency targets like OG Andrew Norwell, the Giants were able to add key players to their squad that will make a substantial impact immediately. To start with the most important position in assisting the running back, the Giants added 3 new potential starters on the offensive line. The first being Nate Solder, an 8 year NFL veteran LT who protected Tom Brady and the Patriots Dynasty and won 2 super bowls. The next being Will Hernandez, a guard from UTEP who is 1st round talent and was available in the 2nd round. The final being Patrick Omameh, last year’s starting left guard for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars had the top rushing offense last year in terms of yards, and Omameh played a role in this production. With the addition of these three “hog mollies”, the Giants offensive line is most definitely better than last year’s line, who were one of the main reasons for the Giants having the 26th most total yards in the league. The offensive line at Penn State was far from perfect, but Barkley still managed to post over 1000 rushing yards in each of his 3 starting years in college. With Odell Beckham Jr and Sterling Shepherd back and healthy, defenses will be on their toes, leaving Barkley the chance to catch opposing defenses slipping and run all over the field.
