The New York Giants have been plenty busy in free agency as they reshape their roster with significant changes looming. New York saw big names like Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney cash in elsewhere but made a splash of its own by trading for star edge rusher Brian Burns.

In free agency, the Giants have also added a new running back (Devin Singletary), quarterback (Drew Lock) and offensive tackle (Jermaine Eluemunor).

As New York looks to take a different path forward with new faces in town, that's left a few former players still seeking jobs on the open market.

1. Odell Beckham Jr.

Of course, it's been a few years since Odell Beckham Jr. was a member of the Giants. But he's still a free agent at this moment after going unsigned through most of March.

Beckham enjoyed a nice bounce-back performance this past season with the Baltimore Ravens, posting 35 receptions for 565 yards and three touchdowns. His impressive 16.1 yards per catch showed he has some elusiveness left in the tank following his most recent ACL tear, which sidelined him for the entire 2022 campaign.

However, OBJ is likely still without a deal because his value isn't that high anymore. His production in 2023 was nothing more than that of a third wide receiver, and the market for those types of players hasn't been hot this year, with others like Tyler Boyd, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Michael Gallup all vying to be the next wideout who gets paid.

There's also both age and injury concerns to keep in mind when it comes to Beckham. He'll turn 32 during this upcoming season, which isn't appealing in a football era where many of the top producers are still on their rookie deals. Also, given his plethora of health issues throughout his career, Beckham can't be relied upon as a focal point of an offense.

Surely, OBJ will land somewhere for the 2024 season, but it probably won't be at the price he wants.
