Giants position review, wide receiver: How will the Giants upgrade their pass-catching weapons?

The New York Giants entered the 2022 season with questions about whether or not they had enough talent at the wide receiver position. Injuries, poor performance, and a lack of ability to co-exist with a former first-round draft pick led to an on-the-fly in-season makeover of the position.

The Giants got better than could have been expected production out of a group of receivers they did not think they would have to rely on in 2022, but they enter the 2023 offseason once again knowing they need to add more playmakers for quarterback Daniel Jones.
