Next years free agency—any good OL talent at Tackle or Edge?

NJBlueTuna : 8/10/2019 11:25 am
We will have a ton of money under the cap for next season and wondering if there are any relatively young talent at tackle or edge?
Continue drafting  
Big Blue '56 : 8/10/2019 11:40 am : link
well..No more exorbitant outlays for OL or DL..
How about................  
DCOrange : 8/10/2019 11:43 am : link
we play one real game this season before talking about next year. Ridiculous.
next draft  
Jay in Toronto : 8/10/2019 11:44 am : link
some good centers are coming out.
FA- this is the step in the rebuild hence the big pot of $ in 2020  
NJBlueTuna : 8/10/2019 11:51 am : link
We will have a ton of FA money under the cap. The most important for a young QB is putting quality OL around him. We still have RT to fix as it’s not Remmers and the 7th round guy won’t be close to ready. OL is one of the few positions that free agency delivers value since they have a shelf life longer than most positions.

You draft the skill and edge positions to avoid the over pay in FA, and most quality edge players with years ahead of them never hit FA.
Sign FART Daryl Williams this coming offseason

He signed a one year prove-it deal this past off-season with the Cats. Then dradft a Center in one of the first two rounds. OL problem solved.

I think haliparo has potential. Remmers I do not think has long term potential but will seem all world just as the upgrade from last year
Wouldn’t mind spreading coin around  
Payasdaddy : 8/10/2019 1:00 pm : link
Maybe 1 high end edge rusher if possible
I would also be fine with mid level signings , as in an ILB who sets the tone and can cover/tackle machine
Maybe a top FS that may not break bank
Looks like wr has a ton of top end talent in draft and s9me top O-line prospects. Would look to land our potential #1 wr in first rd if it makes sense
But funny how potentially drafting well in mid rounds changes the whole dynamic and future cap usage
Not sure where the Giants will draft  
gmenrule : 8/10/2019 1:03 pm : link
but I would be looking at the OT from University of Georgia (Andre Thomas ?) who will probably be the 1st OT off the board. He can replace Solder when his contract runs out.
More importantly without taking time to look it up  
eli4life : 8/10/2019 1:09 pm : link
Who do we have coming up that will need a new deal that we can use some of that cap on? That’s where good drafting comes into play instead of overpaying other fa’s have our own talent that’s worth resigning at most likely a cheaper deal
figure out the biggest hole fill it  
Dankbeerman : 8/10/2019 2:04 pm : link
then draft everywhere else.

Remers/Golden replacement or upgrade looks atractive now but if X and Zo turn out to be special we can just draft depth at the edge and Remmers could eaisly be better then anyone else at RT
Yes its earlyu, but.....  
MarvelousMike : 8/10/2019 2:28 pm : link
I say they draft best OT or Edge in rd 1, WR in Rd 2 or 3, and FA will one of these three positions.

Him and the edge guy from Ohio State would be my top targets
Yes.

Assuming they're not re-signed by their teams before they hit the open market, there will be several good, young players at RT and ER who will be available in free agency. However, none of them will come cheap. Far from it, in fact.

I would hope that a premier OT is drafted. Someone who can hold down RT and eventually replace Solder. Hernandez and Zeitler will need new contracts in 2 years (after 2019 season). We can't also be extending Solder making the 3 the highest paid at their position.

With regards to Edge, the only one that should have a Brinks truck backed up for is Yannick Ngakoue. He continues to earn top money and they won't have the room after paying Ramsey. With Josh Allen in the fold, Yannick won't be a priority.
Solder's Time May be Limited  
OntheRoad : 8/10/2019 4:31 pm : link
This might be his last year. An expensive free agent might be the best option.

I was just answering the OP's question. I'd much rather build through the draft, and next year looks like a good one for OT's. Still, you can't deny the effect that signing Kareem McKenzie had on the Giant offense. It was well worth making him the highest paid RT in the league at that time.

Regarding Ngakoue, he's going to cost upwards of $90-$100 million. That's a lot of cash to lay out for one player, even a premier pass-rusher like Ngakoue. Of course, if Carter, Ximines, and Golden fail to produce, it might be worth it after all.

The market for LT's in 2020 blows. 2021 might be the time to cut Solder loose if the Giants can draft his eventual replacement in 2020.

what Shurmur said:

He and Gettleman believe in adding at least 1 good OL every offseason.

If a true dominant RT is available, it is one thing. Daryl Williams coming off a 1yr prove-it deal is not the guy. He'll want to get paid. I just don't think paying top dollar (inevitable for first tier FAs) for the like of Williams is good business. Better keep drafting and not waiting to the bottom rounds hoping to find a gem.

With regards to Edge, let's hope Carter, X-Man, and Golden produce. If Golden doesn't produce, he'll be gone. If he does bounce back, is he worth signing to a contract like D-Law? Yannick will get D-Law money and will be worth every penny. Never injured and keeps piling up the sacks.
Clowney would be a natural fit.
