New York Giants Roster 2020 New York Giants Roster

4-12, 3rd NFC East

vs PHI

6:00 pm GMT, 12/29

After another disappointing season for the Giants last year (finished 5-11), things unfortunately don't seem like they're going to turn around this year. It marked the second season in a row where the Giants finished at the bottom of the NFC East, and after the offseason they had, I wouldn't be surprised if this year marks the third consecutive season they're on the bottom of the East. They seem to be in the midst of a rebuild, so it makes sense, but a rebuild unfortunately means there won't be too great of football coming out of MetLife Stadium this year.

Top 3 Giants Roster Questions of 2019-2020

Why in the world did the Giants trade Odell Beckham Jr.?

When you're looking at this trade, it's imperative to keep in mind the fact that the Giants are in rebuild mode. Well, why wouldn't they keep a young generational talent like Beckham as a core member of the team and build around him? That's a good question. I guess you could look at the fact that Beckham has missed a little over a quarter of career games due to injury which really doesn't look good when trying to put a value on the wide receiver. After all was said in done, the Giants effectively traded Beckham for DL Dexter Lawrence (17th overall in the 2019 Draft), LB Oshane Ximines (third-round pick in the 2019 Draft), and safety Jabrill Peppers. As with most trades, only time will tell if it proves to be worth it. If the Giants are going to be rebuilding, young(er) talent is what they need, and getting two extra draft picks this year will certainly help their cause.

How does QB Daniel Jones fit into this Giants team?

Again, you have to be thinking future when looking into this draft-pick. With the Giants dealing Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland, it afforded them the opportunity to draft a QB and still get first round defensive talent in Dexter Lawrence. It's one of those things where the Giants eventually had to bite the bullet and draft who they think will be the aging Eli Manning's replacement. With the current trend of Brees and Brady playing into their forties, it's hard to say exactly when Eli Manning will hang up the towel. It should be noted, though, that he'll be a free agent after this year, and what happens in the offseason will be the main determinant of what is to be with Daniel Jones. Jones has a similar build to Eli, but at first glance appears to be much more athletic. You have to admit that the Giants have a type, but they're really hoping Jones will be their guy for years to come.

Why did the Giants let Landon Collins walk?

This is, again, a move for the future. While at first glance it seems like a boneheaded move to let the leader of their secondary and 3x Pro-Bowler Collins walk, when you look at the bigger picture, it starts to make more sense. Applying the franchise tag to Collins would only lead to a huge salary given out later, and the Giants simply felt that money would be put to better use in other places. They're going to eventually need to resign Barkley, after all. Whether it was the right or wrong move isn't really for me to say, but rather it was a decision the Giants made. Jabrill Peppers will make a strong replacement for Collins, though.
