The Giants naturally have Saquon Barkley as their top back and recently re-signed Matt Breida. Foreman is a tough scrimmage runner but offers little in the passing game. He had the best season of his five-year career in 2022, rushing for 914 for Carolina on 203 carries.
It just shows the due diligence and aggressiveness of Giants general manager Joe Schoen, who is pulling out all stops to build up his offensive arsenal.
