Training camps are still in the distance, but USA TODAY Sports is providing five things you need to know about every team in the NFL to catch you up on the offseason. Today, the New York Giants ...
1. The offense is still looking to find its footing
After the Giants went on a $200 million spending spree to repair their defense last season, it was Ben McAdoo's offense that served as the stumbling block in his first year as coach. Despite a 11-5 record and wild-card berth, Big Blue ranked 25th in total offense (330.7 yards per game) and 26th in scoring (19.4 points per game). D.J. Fluker was added to provide help for a shaky offensive line, but the burden could ultimately fall on young offensive tackles Ereck Flowers and Bobby Hart to take a significant step forward.
2. One veteran receiver is out, and another is in
Elder statesman Victor Cruz's run in New York came to an end after he was released in February. But the arrival of Brandon Marshall from the Jets gives Eli Manning a needed physical presence in the passing game, as well as a receiver to take some heat off Odell Beckham Jr. Marshall's ability to haul in contested catches will pay a huge dividend for a team that ranked 28th in third-down conversion rate (35.6%) and repeatedly stumbled in the red zone. Adding first-round tight end Evan Engram and H-back Rhett Ellison should allow the team to explore more diverse offensive looks.
