2. Isaiah Hodgins - Wide Receiver

After being brought into the Giants in 2022, Isaiah Hodgins was a massive part of the Giants making the playoffs with 351 yards and four touchdowns on 33 catches in three games. He'd have the best showing of his career on the biggest stage with eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Wild Card Round.

Unfortunately, he saw a massive dip in production in 2023 with just 230 yards and three touchdowns on 21 catches in 17 games.

Hodgins clearly had some sort of chemistry with Daniel Jones and the injuries of Jones in part derailed Hodgins' season. Bringing back Hodgins would give the Giants another cheap weapon they desperately need after an abysmal season offensively.

1. Isaiah Simmons - Linebacker/Safety

After allowing Xavier McKinney to walk in free agency, the Giants have a gapping hole in the secondary at safety opposite Jason Pinnock. The team has options in free agent signing Jalen Mills or returnees Gervarrius Owens and Dane Belton, but there's no clear-cut favorite in the group.

The Giants could look to bring back versatile defender Isaiah Simmons who's split time between safety and linebacker in his career.

The former first-round pick played in 17 games for the Giants as a safetyy recording 50 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and an interception. The speed of Simmons makes him a weapon in any defense as he has the ability to play in the box or deep with the ability to cover anyone in man coverage.

Re-signing Simmons would give the Giants a player who can compete to start at safety while also providing the team with insurance at linebacker and solid special teams play.
