If there’s one candidate on the New York Giants unrestricted free agent list who should be considered for a new contract based on history alone, it’s fifth-year center Nick Gates.

He played three seasons and appeared in 35 games for the Cornhuskers, earning numerous honors including Third-Team All-Big Ten in 2016 and BTN All-Bowl Team in 2015.
