With less than a week to go until the 2023 NFL trade deadline, maybe the NY Giants aren’t the expected sellers that most have expected them to be. Following the 14-7 win over the Washington Commanders in Week 7, suddenly, things aren’t looking so bleak for the Giants season. Currently, they are 2-5 on the season and the next two games on the schedule are winnable ones.
Potential wins against the New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders would put the Giants at 4-5 and the season could have a much different outlook heading into November. Granted, the fans who want the Giants to tank the rest of the season for Caleb Williams or Drake Maye don’t want to hear that, but the fans who aren’t giving up just yet still have hope.
So, who should Joe Schoen take a look at with the trade deadline approaching? Here's a look at five players for fans to keep an eye on:
5. New England Patriots OL Trent Brown
The Giants offensive line has been a mess all season, so of course, the first person on this list should be a lineman to help. Whether it be Daniel Jones or Tyrod Taylor, the Giants quarterback that is starting needs more protection going forward. Plus, given Andrew Thomas’ hamstring issues, Trent Brown could be a possible fit at left tackle if Thomas experiences any further issues.
Brown is in the final year of his contract with the Patriots and New England is looking like a team that could be picking near the top of the draft, so Bill Belichick might be inclined to sell off a player for a possible draft pick for the future.
Brown is an excellent lineman who pass blocks and run blocks very well, so if the Patriots nose dive in 2023 continues, Brown is an ideal target to help the Giants need for extra help on the line. With all his experience, he'd be a great get for this time of year.
