Johnathan Hankins could walk from Giants
The New York Giants aren't expected to prioritize re-signing defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins.
Hankins is wrapping up his rookie deal, and the Giants may not have the cash to throw at him after handing out big-money deals to fellow defensive linemen Olivier Vernon and Damon Harrison last year. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is also an impending free agent and is consider more of a priority. Hankins turns 25 in March and was one of the league's best run-stoppers in 2015.
The Giants' defense ranked third best against the run this season, by schedule-adjusted Defensive Rushing Net Expected Points per play.
