Another Giant Leap Forward Expected for New York in 2023

2023 New York Giants Offseason Overview

The 2023 season was a breakout for head coach Brian Daboll and the New York Giants.  First-year head coaches often flail into failure.  After all, they are generally not hired because things are going well.  But Daboll proved to be the Betting on NFL exception to the rule.  The former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator lead the G-Men to the 2022 NFC Playoffs.  Subsequently, Big Blue got a wild card win at the Minnesota Vikings.  But the NFL is about now.  And the Giants have a promising look for 2023.

2023 New York Giants Offseason Overview

At the beginning of New York’s offseason is the contract they gave to Daniel Jones.  Rather than use the franchise tag, the Giants handed Jones a new deal.  Consider that is a substantial Online Sportsbook risk, given his NFL career.  But it freed up salary cap space to spend elsewhere.

Tight end Darren Waller was a nice Betting on football gamble that took some of that cap flexibility.  It can’t be overlooked that it allowed them to tag Saquon Barkley instead.  But overall, their veteran additions didn’t take advantage of that cap flexibility.

In the draft, The Giants saw the first two rounds unfold optimally.  In the first round, they selected Deonte Banks at cornerback.  Next, they secured a player in the second, center John Michael Schmitz.  Many observers had been expecting them to draft a round higher.  And the receiver Jalin Hyatt in the third round is another selection that brings a lot of upsides.  In sum, it gives the Giants an elite first two days of the draft.

2023 New York Giants Offseason Analysis

At the onset, the New York Giants offseason NFL bets goal was to maintain offensive capability.  Following their qualification for the divisional round in 2022.  They did that by franchise-tagging Saquon Barkley and signing Daniel Jones to a four-year, $160 million contract.

Also, New York retained players like punter Jamie Gillan, pass-rusher Jihad Ward, linebacker Jarrad Davis and receivers Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard.  And then, it upgraded its receiving corps by signing Parris Campbell and Jamison Crowder.  Also of help was trading for tight end Darren Waller.

Did the Giants overpay for a quarterback with one NFL Betting odds

season of above-average play on his resume?  Without question.  However, doing so prevents New York from having to start over at the game’s most important position.

The Giants added a speedy complementary receiver in Jalin Hyatt in the draft.  Also, they got a promising interior line prospect in John Michael Schmitz.  And a potential lockdown corner for Don Martindale’s defense in Deonte Banks.  Additionally, rookie running back Eric Gray will provide valuable depth behind the oft-injured Barkley.

By keeping much of the roster intact and improving a few key areas, New York has given itself a chance to make the playoffs for a second straight season.

Of course, the great challenge is that the Giants reside in the brutal NFC East.  The division sent two other teams to the playoffs in 2022.  Of major concern is that the Giants failed to land the true No. 1 receiver their offense has lacked.  And they did practically nothing to address a run defense that ranked 31st in yards per carry in 2022.
