The New York Giants signed wide receiver Allen Robinson on Wednesday, adding yet another player to an already-crowded depth chart at the position. The 30-year-old is coming off a poor season and was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers in early March.

Details of Robinson’s contract are still unknown, but due to the team’s tight cap space, the team is likely taking a short-term flier on the receiver in the hopes of a career revival. In 2023, Robinson caught 34 passes for 280 yards without a touchdown.

Though the Giants have a slew of receivers at their disposal, the team still lacks star power at the position. 2024 sixth-overall pick Malik Nabers is expected to be a key contributor for years to come. Still, beyond him, the team will primarily rely on the likes of Darius SlaytonWan’Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt.

Slayton, the team’s leading receiver last year, is holding out while he negotiates for a better contract. He had just 50 receptions for 770 yards and four touchdowns last year, as the Giants ranked near the bottom in nearly every offensive statistical category.

When Daniel Jones manages to return from the ACL injury he sustained last year, many of the team’s current problems at receiver may seem overblown. Jones is still questionable about being ready to go by Week 1 but said he is trying hard to make himself available.

“I’m going to focus on my rehab and making sure I’m doing everything I need to do there to get back healthy and get back on the field and then working on what I can do to improve,” Jones said in January.

The Giants made the playoffs in 2022 with a similar roster, but there are far more questions going into 2024. In addition to Jones’ injury, it is also unclear how running back Saquon Barkley’s departure will affect the offense.
