There’s been a lot of roster transformation across the NFC East. The Washington Commanders are the team within the division that underwent the most upheaval. Therefore, important to see how the landscape currently looks after early workouts.

Even with this exciting time for Washington, the fireworks and party balloons need to be put on hold until this team is proven on the field. There are many unknowns and plenty of hard work ahead.

With this being said, let’s look at how the NFC East shapes up following early workouts in 2024.

4. New York Giants

The New York Giants don't have a horrible roster. A few important upgrades were made to their roster it's a step in the right direction. However, I think this team has proved that their 2022 playoff run was more of a fluke than anything.

This Giants' front office was fooled by Brian Daboll making Daniel Jones look decent in 2022. They ended up giving him a big paycheck because of it. His contract is easy to move on from after this season. With that being said, the franchise is stuck with subpar quarterback play in 2024.

A couple of key players were let go this offseason. Running back Saquon Barkley asked for too much money and ended up signing in-division with the Philadelphia Eagles. Safety Xavier McKinney also wanted a big contract and got it from the Green Bay Packers.

Perhaps the biggest offseason acquisition for the Giants was Brian Burns. I was hoping the Washington Commanders would’ve paid the price for an elite edge rusher. To replace Barkley, the Giants brought in running back Devin Singletary, who just had his true breakout with the Houston Texans. Offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor was also acquired to attempt to improve the unit.

The Giants had a superb draft. They started by taking superstar wide receiver Malik Nabers. They desperately needed a true alpha wideout and got it. They also had two great Day 2 picks in safety Tyler Nubin, who will be McKinney’s replacement, and cornerback Andru Phillips.

This Giants team is improved, but they might be bottom of the barrel in the NFC East next season.
