Giants’ GM Joe Schoen masterfully rebuilt the offensive line

Can Giants’ LB Micah McFadden make an impact in his rookie year?

Kadarius Toney | Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com / USA TODAY NETWORK

Is there any way they could be worse than they were in 2021?

The New York Giants tried desperately to upgrade their wide receivers a season ago, signing Kenny Golladay and John Ross as free agents and using a first-round pick on Kadarius Toney. For a myriad of reasons, that did not work out.
