5 Giants who are candidates for contract extensions

The New York Giants have a total of 17 players on their roster who are not under contract past this season.

Headed for unrestricted free agency are: Eli Manning, Leonard Williams, Marcus Golden, Mike Remmers, Michael Thomas, Russell Shepard, Cody Latimer, Zak DeOssie, Antonio Hamilton, David Mayo, Javorius Allen, Deone Bucannon, Scott Simonson, Alex Tanney, Corey Coleman, Cody Core and Riley Dixon.

It’s unlikely the team will bring Manning back. That would be counterproductive in a number of ways. DeOssie appears to have played his last down in blue and many of the others are veterans that can be upgraded through either the draft or free agency, where the Giants are positioned to be very active.

Here are five impending free agents the Giants could be looking to prioritize and extend:

After surrendering a 2020 third-round pick and a 2021 fifth-round pick (that becomes a fourth rounder if they sign him) to land Williams, general manager Dave Gettleman will look foolish if he allows the former Pro Bowler to walk.

Gettleman might look even more foolish if he gives Williams an over-the-market contract. Williams has not brought enough to the table for the Giants for them to go above and beyond to retain him.

Williams is not worth both a third- and a fourth-round pick plus a contract that could  pay him double-digit millions per annum. No sense throwing good money after bad.

The Giants best bet is to let Williams walk and only bid on him if his price starts to drop to where it would be a bargain. I don’t foresee Williams getting signed for a while in free agency as he and his reps appear to be looking for a huge payday.
