Sign Jack Crawford
Adding pass rushing depth should be a point of emphasis for the Giants. Bringing aboard Dallas Cowboys’ edge rusher Jack Crawford would be a great step to make that happen.
New York found a gem in undrafted free agent Romeo Okwara, but his fellow back-up edge defenders lack the ability to get to the quarterback. Kerry Wynn is a great run defender but struggles to get pressure. Meanwhile, Owa Odighizuwa has yet to show the potential on the field the Giants saw in him when he was drafted.
Crawford notched 25 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2016, with 21 tackles and four sacks the year before. The Giants know what they’ll be getting with him and offering him the one-year/$1 million pact he got from Dallas a season ago makes sense. If Odighizuwa still doesn’t pan out the Giants have a reliable back up plan.
