Watch Kadarius Toney respond to NY Giants trade rumors from this offseason
As wild as it was to even think about, the word out there earlier this offseason was that the NY Giants could be looking to trade 2021 first-round pick Kadarius Toney. What, one and done for the speedster out of Florida? The talented wide receiver had a first campaign to forget for the G-Men, opening the door for all different kinds of speculation.
Toney brushed off everything and he’s been a treat to watch at training camp, making big play after big play. After practice on Friday, Toney was asked about the different trade rumors he saw pop up. As you might have been able to imagine, Toney kept his cool and said he didn’t even think about things once it all came up.
NY Giants WR Kadarius Toney didn’t care about the trade rumors
There you have it, folks. Toney quite literally could not have cared less about what he saw on different websites and all over Twitter. Once the rumors did start, people were trying to figure out what the Giants would potentially get in return for Toney’s services. This is a young, talented wideout after all.
However, that was all a waste of time, as the front office communicated to him that nothing was going to go down and he was going to be a Giant for the long haul. That decision has paid off for NY, as Toney truly has been a pleasure to watch early on at training camp. People are still talking about his fantastic touchdown grab during the first practice, which could end up going down as the play of camp.
On top of that, Toney has been all smiles thanks to what appears to be a great relationship with head coach Brian Daboll. Daboll has been putting on Toney’s music at camp too, which has all the players jacked up. Now, Toney is going to try and make his new coach look smart by giving him the ball countless times this fall.
Toney has all the potential to be a special player for the Giants. He’s ready to put the tough 2021 in the past and make sure things get back on track in ’22. As for those trade rumors, it’s all going to be forgotten here pretty soon – and Toney will make Joe Schoen and Co. look tremendous for sticking with him.
