Giants a potential landing spot for this free agent offensive lineman?

Connor Williams spent the past two seasons in Miami

As training camp approaches, some notable veterans remain unsigned but are likely to find a home before the start of the season.

One notable available free agent offensive lineman is Connor Williams, for whom CBS Sports’ Bryan DeArdo listed the New York Giants as one of five landing spots.

DeArdo writes:

We don’t need to say much more than the fact that the Giants’ offensive line gave up 85 sacks last year. Big Blue would certainly benefit by adding Williams, who allowed just one sack in 497 snaps last season prior to his injury.

Williams, 27, played for the Miami Dolphins the past two seasons. His 2023 season was cut short due to an ACL tear in Week 14 against the Titans, leading to his placement on injured reserve.

During the 2022 season, he played in all 17 games, allowing three sacks and accruing six penalties. He was the sole player to partake in 100% of the team’s offensive snaps, totaling 1,057.

The former All-American from Texas is familiar with the NFC East. He started his career with the Dallas Cowboys, who selected Williams in the second round, 50th overall, of the 2018 NFL Draft and spent the first four seasons (2018-2021) of his career in Dallas.

The 6-foot-5, 312-pound veteran has played in 83 games with 77 starts over six seasons. He could offer much-needed depth and versatility to the Giants’ front.

Williams played center for the Dolphins the past two seasons after playing left guard in his four seasons with Dallas. Jermaine Eluemunor is currently expected to be the Giants left guard. Signing Williams would likely indicate Eluemunor moving to right tackle to replace Evan Neal.
