2. Nick McCloud

When you look at the depth chart of the Giants cornerback position, Nick McCloud might seem like a long-shot to be either traded or cut, especially since how much he’s played over the last two seasons. However, here’s where the Giants could possibly move him.

The Giants have Cor’Dale Flott as a possible option to start alongside Deonte Banks. Plus they drafted Andru Phillips in the third round and have Tre Hawkins, David Long and Elijah Riley as well. Where the Giants could make a move is from the around $11.6 million in salary cap space that they now have given Darren Waller’s retirement.

The Giants were once hesitant to give out money to veteran cornerbacks like Darious Williams or Tre’Davious White, but with the extra cap space, maybe the Giants decide to go get another veteran cornerback with that money. Given the fact that McCloud doesn’t have a guaranteed deal and trading him could be a move that saves the Giants almost $3 million in cap space, McCloud could be someone the Giants end up moving if needed.

If the Giants decide to address other positions with their newly-found cap space, then McCloud might not be on the bubble in the summer and could find himself once again on the main roster. But if the Giants do, then another team could see McCloud’s experience on their depth chart as a need and a move to make.
