Four days into free agency the Giants have already filled their three biggest needs, adding a couple of offensive lineman, a play-making linebacker, and a running back too. The problem is they were a dysfunctional 3-13 mess last season, so there's still a lot of work to be done.
And they're pretty much out of the salary cap space they need to do it.
So what's next for the Giants and what's left for them to do? Well, they look particularly thin at the cornerback position and they could use a third receiver. They also have some questions at running back, depending on how much their new acquisition, 31-year-old Jonathan Stewart, has left in the tank. And after their flurry of moves - including a four-year, $62.5 million contract for left tackle Nate Solder - the Giants' remaining cap situation isn't very good.
In fact at the moment, though all the details of their new contracts aren't available yet, they're believed to be pretty close to the $177.2 million salary cap and they might have to clear some room just to sign their draft picks after the draft.
The offseason is far from over, though, so here's a quick look at what else the Giants are likely to do between now and the start of training camp in late July:
Clear some more cap room: If the estimates are right, and they have less than $5 million remaining, this is an absolute must since they probably need about $7 million or so to sign their draft class - including the expensive No. 2 pick. There are easy ways to do it. Presumably WRs Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris are in danger of being cut. The Giants would clear $7.5 million by releasing them ($5.1 million for Marshall and $2.4 million for Harris). Cutting G John Jerry (for a $2.5 million savings) is a possibility, too.
They do have a few large contracts they can restructure too, but that just pushes more cap debt into future seasons. It's always an easy option if they need to do it, though.
Find some cornerback help: The release of CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie cleared much-needed cap space, but it left the Giants pretty thin at his old position. They have Janoris Jenkins and probably Eli Apple, assuming he returns to the Giants in a better frame of mind than he was last year. Beyond that? They don't have much.
Since they don't have much cap room, though, they'll need to wait until the second or even the third wave of free agency hits. They're probably looking at a veteran, and their best bet might be to bring back Ross Cockrell.
Add a third receiver: This might be especially important with Odell Beckham still recovering from ankle surgery, but even with Beckham and Sterling Shepard the Giants need a third receiver to replace Marshall, assuming he's cut. Unless they trust Roger Lewis in that role, but that seems unlikely.
Unfortunately the receiver market was crazy, and given the prices it's not likely they could even get a late steal on a Jordan Matthews, Mike Wallace, Terrelle Pryor, or Jeremy Maclin. Their best bet here might be the second or third round of the draft.
Maybe add more offensive linemen: It seems like Gettleman likes what he has on the line at the moment, with tackle Nate Solder and guard Patrick Omameh on the left side, Brett Jones at center, and Ereck Flowers probably their right tackle. They could use a right guard, unless he's happy with John Jerry. He also brought back John Greco and Jon Halapio, and praised Chad Wheeler and Adam Bisnowaty for how they played at the end of last year.
But Gettleman isn't done with his "Hog Mollies" yet. He loves uncovering good ones, so you can expect a draft pick or two to be used at this position, and a bunch of undrafted free agents too.
