The New York Giants have had a busy offseason so far in 2021. Brining in key pieces like Kenny Golladay and Adoree' Jackson, while also inking star defensive lineman Leonard Williams to a long-term deal. While they may have had an embarrassment of riches along the defensive line, the one big Giants loss of the offseason so far was fellow defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson.

Second-year player Dexter Lawrence looks poised to step into that role on a more permanent basis in 2021, but it sounds like New York is still looking to add depth along the line.

Former first-round pick Danny Shelton is reportedly visiting with the Giants on Monday.

Shelton certainly wasn't the star last season he was billed as coming into the league, receiving a 51.1 grade from ProFootballFocus in 2020. Although teams are always willing to take a chance on a former top pick, especially when Shelton is still just 27 years old and is expected to be more of a depth signing, rather than a starting solution.

There's no indication on how likely a signing with the Giants is, but it would be a move in line with what has gone on with the Giants offseason thus far.
