Unfortunately, Schwartz played just one game, Jennings missed five and started in only nine. DRC battled through several ailments to have a solid season, but overall the team's 2014 UFA crop was a bust.
This year, the Giants figure to be less aggressive in free agency, still having not realized last year's gains as of yet. As per the team's CEO, John Mara, the priority will be retaining some of their own free agents, most notably DE Jason Pierre-Paul and safety Antrel Rolle.
Looking at the current active contracts, the Giants shopping list this spring will be smaller. They have 52 players under contract, so there isn't a lot of wiggle room on there roster considering they will also have a half-dozen draftees to deal with.
Of those 52 players, 30 will be playing in the final year of their respective deals. Some of those players the Giants will be seeking to extend such as QB Eli Manning and WR Rueben Randle.
But there are some in that group the team may not be planning on retaining, players that might be overpriced such as DE Mathias Kiwanuka and some that have not panned out like TE Adrien Robinson and CB Jayron Hosley.
Basically, the core is set for 2016. In fact, it's still being formed. With a top-10 draft slot this spring, the team will look to build on that young core and the FA additions and retentions already in house.
