The NY Giants’ roster offers the unique flexibility for Dave Gettleman to be both a buyer and a seller at the NFL trade deadline. Here are 3 trades he should make
NY Giants general manager Dave Gettleman might not be feeling internal heat in terms of his job security, but also finds himself in the unique position of possibly being able to be a buyer and a seller ahead of next week’s NFL trade deadline.
If the season ended today, the NY Giants would be choosing No. 2 overall in next April’s 2021 NFL Draft, but with nine games remaining are just one game back in the win column from the NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles with rematches remaining against the Dallas Cowboys without Dak Prescott, the Eagles potentially without Zach Ertz and DeSean Jackson, and a chance to sweep Washington.
What should Gettleman do?
A current NFL scout tells me that his top priority if he were in Gettleman’s shoes would be to accumulate as many draft picks as possible to build around quarterback Daniel Jones.
Fortunately for Gettleman and the Giants, this roster has several players that could be coveted by contending teams looking for a boost ahead of a possible playoff run.
Regardless of whether Gettleman believes the Giants can compete this year, the embattled general manager would be wise to add at least one playmaker on offense to help hasten Jones’ development both to possibly push him into being competitive in meaningful games and possibly develop good habits that come with having a reliable deep threat at receiver to throw to.
With those goals in mind, scroll through for a look at three possible trades that the Giants could, and arguably should make ahead of the deadline:
