NY Giants must prioritize signing Leonard Williams to a long-term contract

The NY Giants’ plan from the moment they acquired Leonard Williams in 2019 was to use the franchise tag on the defensive lineman in 2020, so long as he lived up to expectations following a trade with the Jets, but using the tag a second time in 2021 is not something the organization should even […] NY Giants must prioritize signing Leonard Williams to a long-term contract - GMEN HQ - GMEN HQ - NY Giants News & New York Giants Fan Community

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports If the Giants need a defensive tackle in 2021, could Tuipulotu fill that need? The New York Giants have a long history of selecting defensive tackles early in the draft. The Giants rarely let a year pass without adding an interior defensive lineman to their pipeline of young talent. They’ve generally done so in preparation for a previous selection departing in free agency. As it so happens, the Giants have three of their five interior linemen (Leonard Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, and Austin Johnson) primed to hit free agency in 2021,...
