3. The Giants Will Address the Offensive Line In Free Agency

The Giants had one of the worst offensive lines in 2023. Andrew Thomas is New York's best lineman but missed six games due to a hamstring strain. The rest of the unit collapsed when he went down. Thomas was the only lineman to finish the year with a PFF grade over 65.

Meanwhile, PFF also dropped their final offensive line rankings of 2023, and the Giants were ranked 30th, only trailing the Tennessee Titans and the New York Jets.

New York allowed the second most sacks in league history (85). They will have Thomas, Evan Neal, and John Michael Schmitz returning in 2024, as the Giants invested top draft picks bringing these guys in. But you can expect them to improve the interior of the line.

Andrus Peat, Cody Whitehair, and Kevin Zeitler will all be free agents in March. Snagging a veteran could do wonders for the interior. Having pressure come from the inside automatically shuts down a play because it doesn't give the quarterback any room to step up in the pocket.

Zeitler is coming off a solid campaign with the Baltimore Ravens, notching a 69.3 PFF grade. Peat has been with the New Orleans Saints since 2015. He is balanced as both a run and pass blocker. The Stanford product logged a 60.2 PFF grade and gave up just two sacks in 2023.

Whitehair was released by the Chicago Bears earlier this week to create cap space. The Kansas State product did struggle a bit in 2023 but has played solid ball over his eight seasons in Chicago. The 2016 second-round pick appeared in 124 games with 118 starts during his time as a Bear. He also has experience playing both center and guard.

New York knows they can't go into 2024 without taking swings at improving the trenches.
