The New York Giants will certainly be in the market to add some playmakers. They had difficulties moving the ball and lacked some dynamic weapons on the outside. New York finished the 2023 season 29th in total offense (280) and 31st in passing offense (169.8).

There will be options on the open market for New York to add and give their aerial attack a boost. SNY reporter Connor Hughes hinted that the Giants should target Buffalo's wide receiver Gabe Davis in free agency.

Hughes thinks Davis could be in the ballpark of a four-year deal for $44 million, something similar to what Allen Lazard received from the Jets last offseason. Per Overthecap, the Giants will have an estimated $22 million in cap space but could go higher with some cuts.

Davis has yet to prove he's a certified No. 1 receiver but he possesses the deep speed and ball-tracking skills to be a reliable vertical threat. In four seasons, the UCF product logged 163 receptions for 2,730 receiving yards, and 27 touchdowns. He also averaged 16.7 yards per reception.

Head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen have some history with Davis due to their time in Buffalo together from 2020-2021.

Even former Bills and Giants receiver Cole Beasley is a fan of the 24-year-old pass catcher. The two were teammates together in Buffalo during the 2020-2021 seasons. After Buffalo's Divisional Round loss, Beasley stated on social media that Davis is probably the "biggest dog" on the team and Bills fans have no idea what they are about to lose.

It will be interesting to see if the Giants target Davis in free agency but it would make a lot of sense for them to at least have a conversation with him. Davis would certainly upgrade the wide receiver room.
