Giants Now:'s best free agents available

GENERIC-FOOTBALL-GN's best free agents still available

The new league year officially begins at 4pm today, but with the negotiating period kicking off on Monday, many free agents have already agreed to new contracts.

The Giants have reportedly made several deals over the last few days on both sides of the ball, all of which can be found in the Free Agent Tracker.

Even with the many deals agreed to over the last two days, there are still numerous talented players available from's list of the top 101 free agents.

Here are the top 10 players still available, with their ranking and commentary from's Gregg Rosenthal.

No. 4 OT Tyron Smith

"One of the most underpaid players in the NFL last season, Smith is due a massive raise after a return to elite form. He played 942 snaps (including playoffs), which is his highest total since 2018, per Pro Football Focus."

No. 7 WR Calvin Ridley

"Overextended when the Jaguars tried to feature him as a No. 1 receiver, Ridley still showed a penchant for getting open and making big plays. He's just a little older and less consistent than you'd ideally like."

No. 12 CB Kendall Fuller

"Fuller is absolutely boosted by the dearth of quality cornerbacks available in this year's market. He can play inside and out and has the smarts to age well at a position that is often cruel to the over-30 set."

No. 14 WR Marquise Brown

"My editor believes this is high for Brown. I believe deep speed is hard to find, and Brown would fit well as the second or third option on a top-10 offense. If Christian Kirk was worth $18 million per year (on a deal that's aged surprisingly well since Kirk signed it in 2022), Brown is worth more."

No. 15 CB Stephon Gilmore

"The best free-agent pickups in recent years have been excellent veterans willing to take one-year deals. Gilmore, still a plus starter, figures to be one of those guys this season. An instant upgrade for virtually any team."

No. 23 DE Chase Young

"If the 49ers couldn't turn Young into a consistent force after acquiring him via midseason trade in 2023, what team can? In a best-case scenario, his power-without-a-plan approach could age the same way Jadeveon Clowney's game did. He looks more like a second or third rusher than a lead guy."

No. 25 DL Arik Armstead

"Perhaps the most surprising release of the offseason, Armstead was the fifth highest-graded interior pass rusher in 2023, according to PFF. He's missed 13 games combined over the last two years."

No. 30 S Kamren Curl

"Curl tackles and covers equally well. Some on/off splits from four games that he missed in 2022 also show his value. If he was originally drafted higher than the seventh round, he'd probably get more hype."

No. 31 EDGE Jadeveon Clowney

"We've reached the section that features several veterans likely to receive one-year deals, who will probably outperform all those first-round rookies we spend months dissecting before the draft."

No. 34 S Julian Blackmon

"Blackmon was incredible as a rookie and had a career year as a playmaker in 2023, with an Achilles injury and a lost season in between. The upside is sneakily sky-high here."
