Two Giants who were part of the 2023 team and are still searching for a deal are defensive backs Adoree' Jackson and Isaiah Simmons.

Jackson has held his own as one of New York's starting cornerbacks since his arrival in 2021. He consistently made plays in the secondary, recording 8, 7, and 8 pass breakups over the past three seasons while adding 2 interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles.

Considering his cold reception on the open market, it's very possible Jackson ends up back in the Big Apple. After all, recent sixth-round pick Tre Hawkins III is in line to start opposite of Deonte Banks without Jackson on board, and that could backfire starting such an inexperienced player at a key position.

In Jackson, the Giants would get a more than capable starter with knowledge of the system and the experience to provide some stability while other areas of the roster change.

The same could be said for Simmons as well. The linebacker-turned-safety hasn't received much free-agent interest to this point, which opens the door for a reunion.

Simmons was a fine depth piece for the team this past campaign, notching an interception, forced fumble and 3 pass deflections in 2023. He even logged four starts, and considering the loss of McKinney, Brian Daboll needs to fill that hole somehow.

A player with those numbers isn't going to cost much to sign, and there's a chance the former No. 8 overall pick improves after setlling in with New York, making this a cheap move with big upside.
