RG – Kevin Zeitler
Zeitler is likely to be a wanted commodity ahead of the trade deadline, particularly among playoff caliber teams looking for help shoring up the offensive line.
While Zeitler has been the Giants’ highest-graded offensive lineman the past two seasons, he’s also the third-most expensive player on the roster next season, when he’ll be 31. Zeitler is set to count $14 million against the cap in 2021.
As the clock ticks towards 4p.m., Gettleman and the Giants would be wise to try to find an offenisve line needy contender to try to deal Zeitler to in order to create cap space and clear a path for rookie Shane Lemieux to get meaningful regular season snaps the rest of the way.
