Laremy Tunsil would have looked darn good in New York Giants blue instead of Houston Texans blue, but that ship has sailed. The G-Men aren’t going to trade for a running back, quarterback, or tight end because they are set at those positions. It’s also unlikely they add an offensive lineman unless there is an injury. What remains is wide receiver. Even when Golden Tate returns, the Giants will still be a bit thin at that position.

Albert Wilson, Wide receiver – The Kansas City Chiefs signed Wilson as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia State in 2014. He justified their faith in him spending four years in KC and developing into a reliable possession receiver. Wilson caught 150 passes between 2014-17 with 11 touchdowns.

He signed a three-year, $24M free-agent contract with Miami before the 2018 season. Injuries cut his season down to seven games last year before going on IR October 24. He still managed to pull down 26 passes for 391 yards and four scores.

DeVante Parker, Wide receiver – The Dolphins first-round pick from 2015 (16th overall), hasn’t developed into a Pro-Bowl player, but he’s still pretty good. Good enough, in fact, for Miami to exercise their option on his contract for the 2019 season.

Parker has experienced some injury issues over the past two seasons which caused him to miss eight of 32 possible games. Even though the Fins were horrible yesterday, he still caught three passes for 75 yards., which accounted for 40% of Miami’s total passing yards. Parker’s best season was in 2016 when he had 56 catches for 744 yards and four TDs.

Neither Wilson or Howard should cost the Giants too much in terms of draft picks.
