In his "Roster Reset" series, NFL.com's Marc Sessler ranked every team in their respective divisions based on how much they improved this offseason.
- 2014 Preseason schedule
The Giants have announced their preseason schedule...
"The Giants haven't always been players on the open market, but their free agency haul this time around has been impressive," he wrote. "New York's revamped secondary rivals Washington's ramped-up collection of receivers as the NFC East's most improved position group. The combination of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond give New York two immediate starters. The G-Men were solid stopping the run last season, and now have a secondary packed with potential."
We take a look at the Giants' signings and re-signings in the 2014 free agency period.
Trailing the Giants were No. 2 Washington, No. 3 Philadelphia, and No. 4 Dallas.
"Heading into the offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles stood out as the clear-cut favorites to repeat as division champions in 2014," Sessler added. "Chip Kelly's bunch remain the class of the NFC East, but two division rivals have worked tirelessly to close the gap. The New York Giants have signed a whopping 15 players from other rosters since Feb. 3, a figure topped only by Tampa Bay's 17. The Redskins, meanwhile, added 13."
