The New York Giants are heading into a pivotal campaign as GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll roll into a critical third season. They made the postseason in 2022 but the wheels fell off in 2023.

They have Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney slated to hit the open market but there are also some holes along the offensive line. Guard Mark Glowinski was released on Mar. 5 in a move that freed up $5.7 million in cap space.

Per OvertheCap, New York currently sits on $38.2 million in salary cap space. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported that the Giants are expected to be active in the guard market in free agency.

Below we'll discuss three available guards that New York should target next week when free agency officially opens.

1. Robert Hunt, G

Hunt was selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins and has developed into a quality difference maker in the trenches.

Hunt has tremendous power and strength to push defenders back in the ground game while being able to be an anchor in pass protection. Across his four-year career, Hunt has played with 16-plus games in three seasons.

Before suffering a hamstring injury in 2023, Hunt was having his best season. He suited up in 547 offensive snaps and only recorded two penalties with one sack allowed. He finished the campaign with a 77.1 PFF grade.

Hunt will certainly command $15 million plus in his upcoming deal but he could be worth the investment.
