Eisen's Mailbag: Potential targets in free agency

Posted Jan 25, 2016

Today’s edition of The Mailbag on

If you could target one position in free agency what would it be?


Dear Brendan:
Since I’m limited to one, I’ll choose linebacker. The Giants’ last Pro Bowl linebacker was Antonio Pierce in 2006. Prior to that it was Jessie Armstead in 2001. Outstanding linebackers can improve a defense in so many ways, from stopping the run to pressuring quarterbacks to covering tight ends and running backs to providing important leadership in the middle of the defense. The Giants thought they had such a player in Jon Beason, a three-time Pro Bowler in Carolina, but injuries have limited him to nine games the last two years. They could help themselves immeasurably by adding one or two – or three – impact linebackers this offseason.
