The NFL free agency is a few days away from officially starting but that doesn't mean players who are already on the open market can't get an early start.

On Mar. 5, the Jacksonville Jaguars released CB Darious Williams in a surprising move. They saved $11.5 million in cap space but he is a quality player who will quickly get swooped up.

Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Williams will be visiting the Giants on Mar. 10.

New York has both Adoree' Jackson and Darnay Holmes hitting free agency and will be in the market to add a cornerback. Williams could be a perfect fit in New York.

The UAB product is only 5'9 but has the ability to play in the slot and on the outside. Williams owns light feet and has the instincts to make plays when the ball is in the air.

In 2023 with the Jaguars, Williams played in all 17 games, notching 44 total tackles, four interceptions, and a career-high 19 pass deflections. This marked his third season with at least 14 pass breakups.

According to OvertheCap, New York is sitting on $38.2 million in salary cap space. They have the funds to lock down Williams if both sides feel like it's a great fit.

The potential of adding a skilled defender in the backend could do wonders for New York. Especially a player who has a Super Bowl title under his belt.

The New York Giants need to ace this offseason to have a legit shot to win the NFC East. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Giants are +1000 underdogs to win the division. If you want to take lock-in of these odds, head over to FanDuel Sportsbook and claim your sign-up bonus.
