5 Former Giants Joe Schoen Should Consider Re-Signing

As Free Agency begins to slow down after the early week madness there are still several former Giants worthy of bringing back to the team for 2024.

4. Matt Peart - Tackle

The Giants' offensive line is all but solidified after the signings of Jon Runyan Jr and Jermaine Eluemunor. However, the Giants will certainly need to add players to compete in the role of the swing tackle especially after injury-riddled seasons from Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal.

In 2023, Matt Peart appeared in eight games with one start while the team dealt with injuries.

The re-signing of the team's former third-round pick could give the Giants an insurance policy in case of injury to Neal or Thomas. Peart will likely sign near the minimum so a move to retain him would give the team a competition between him, Josh Ezeudu, and Marcus McKethan for the sixth lineman in case of injury.

3. Adoree Jackson - Cornerback

The Giants appear to be focusing on a defense-first team as shown through the blockbuster trade for Edge rusher Brian Burns while allowing Saquon Barkley to walk. The Giants' weakest area of their defense is in the secondary, where the group lost Xavier McKinney to Green Bay.

Given the injury history of Adorre Jackson, paired with inconsistent play, a one-year reunion with the Giants may be in the best interest of both sides. The Giants desperately need a cornerback to play on the opposite side of Deonte Banks. The Giants currently have inexperienced CBs on the roster behind Banks in Cordale Flott, Tre Hawkins III, Kaleb Hayes, Aaron Robinson, and Nick McCloud.

Jackson had a solid 2023 for the New York Giants with 63 tackles, eight pass defenses, and an interception, which he returned for a touchdown in 14 games played. The 2023 season was Jackson's healthiest in New York and another reliable season could see Jackson get a long-term deal while the Giants would bridge the position until next season.
