  • Giants' Bobby Okereke: Shines in first season in New York

    Okereke tallied 149 tackles (92 solo), including 2.5 sacks, along with two interceptions and four forced fumbles over 17 games during the 2023 season. Okereke came over to the Giants after four campaigns with the Colts and made a big impact, leading the team in tackles, with his 149 the ninth most in the NFL and two shy of his career-high mark. He was also disruptive in the passing game, tying for second among linebackers in the league with 10 pass defenses, including a pair of picks, while registering a career high in sacks. Okereke is under contract through 2026 and should again be a strong IDP option as a tackling machine next season.
