This would definitely be the kind of move to fix the NY Giants headaches at cornerback. With Joe Schoen in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine, he’s no question taking a look at star cornerbacks to help out the secondary. In several mock drafts, Georgia’s Kelee Ringo is slotted to land with Big Blue at No. 25 overall.
However, could the next star CB for the Giants arrive to town via a blockbuster move? Recently, it was reported that the Los Angeles Rams have had trade talks surrounding superstar playmaker Jalen Ramsey, no question one of the best defensive backs in the game.
Several teams are lining up to try and attain his services for 2023 and beyond. If you ask NFL.com’s Adam Schein, the 28-year-old Ramsey making plays for Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale would make a whole lot of sense.
NY Giants trading for Jalen Ramsey would fire up the fanbase
"“According to Over The Cap, the Giants currently have the fourth-most cap space in the NFL at just under $47 million,” Schein wrote. “A portion of that grand sum could go to QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley, though I wouldn’t overpay for either. I would go after Ramsey, a stud cover man who’d give the G-Men swagger. His play and attitude would go over brilliantly in New York. And I think the versatile playmaker would flourish under aggressive defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.”"
The 6-1, 208-pound Ramsey recorded another brilliant season for the Rams in 2022, posting 64 total tackles, 18 pass deflections, four interceptions and three forced fumbles. Time and time again, Ramsey has been there to make incredible plays for head coach Sean McVay whenever they need him to.
However, the Rams are re-tooling a bit, which is why Ramsey could be traded, and why the team decided to release future Hall-of-Fame linebacker Bobby Wagner. Losing Ramsey would of course hurt the LA defense, but could you imagine him suiting up at MetLife Stadium for Daboll and Martindale?
Ramsey would be the kind of electric playmaker the secondary is begging for. He obviously wouldn’t come cheap, but if Schoen can work his magic and bring the elite CB to town, Big Blue supporters would be all for it. Who knows, maybe Schoen has a trick up his sleeve. Ramsey will surely be a player to monitor over the next few weeks.
