There are less than three weeks until the 2023 NFL trade deadline arrives and the NY Giants could either be sellers and look to gain draft capital, or Joe Schoen could pull some surprising moves to add top talent. The Giants obviously need offensive line help, but what about a WR1 for Daniel Jones?
Throughout this past offseason, Denver Broncos wideout Jerry Jeudy was mentioned as a potential trade target for the Giants, as the squad was desperate to get some help for Jones on the outside. Now, the expectation is that Jeudy could be on his way out of town. In a new article from CBS Sports, they have the G-Men as a possible landing spot for the speedster.
Jerry Jeudy trade rumors: Will the Giants try and get something done?
"He made sense for the G-Men a year ago, and he makes sense today. In truth, New York has bigger foundational issues, such as up front. But adding a legit WR, which they failed to do this offseason, would at least be one step toward outfitting the ailing and highly paid QB Daniel Jones with a passable downfield target."- CBS' Cody Benjamin
The more weapons for Jones, the better. However, absolutely no one can argue with the fact that the main priority for Big Blue should be trying to improve the offensive line. Due to injuries, life has been a nightmare in terms of protection for Jones.
Schoen recently signed Justin Pugh to the practice squad, while he also brought in veteran offensive tackle La'El Collins for a workout. That's a good start to try and fix things, but the Big Blue faithful are still calling for the front office to bring in more OL help.
Don't get us wrong, Jeudy is a fantastic talent and he could help improve the aerial attack. However, bringing in a player of his caliber won't matter much if Jones is still consistently running for his life due to pass-rushers getting after him. From our chair, we think Schoen should focus elsewhere, but you never know what he might do before the deadline.
