The New York Giants performed well above expectations this season.
While many projected them to be toward the bottom of their division, they finished with a respectable 9-7-1 record.
This earned them a playoff berth as the NFC’s sixth seed.
After upsetting the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card round, the Giants then lost to the Philadelphia Eagles.
However, it was a big year for the Giants.
Now, with the offseason approaching, the team has certain area to improve.
Here are two moves the team should make, assuming the team is able to bring Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley back.
2. Trade For Tee Higgins
The Giants need help in their receiving room.
While they have some solid contributors, they lack a true top target.
A player like Tee Higgins, who is stuck behind Ja’Marr Chase in Cincinnati, could be that target.

He has one year left on his deal and the Bengals could look to trade him.
Higgins has been very solid in his three-year career, posting back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in the last two years.
Because he is technically a rental, he also may not cost a ton of trade capital.
1. Sign Tremaine Edmunds
The Giants run defense was disappointing this season.
While they have talented options on the line, they lack any true run stopper at the linebacker position.
Luckily for them, there are a number of free agent linebackers expected to hit free agency.
One is the Buffalo Bills’ Tremaine Edmunds.

He is just 24 years old and has put together a solid NFL career so far.
This would fill a major hole for the Giants, and give them the perfect option to help contain the run and boost the defense.NEXT: Friday Marks A Special Anniversary In NFL History
