Look, we'd love to see the NY Giants land a star wide receiver this offseason, but not if it's going to take away one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL. The star WR we're talking about is Stefon Diggs, who has a lot of people thinking he could be traded over his recent comments.
The Bills stud very well could end up with a new team in 2024, but Bleacher Report's trade idea involving the G-Men is never - we repeat - never going to happen. BR's Maurice Moton has the Bills sending Stefon Diggs and a 2024 sixth-rounder to East Rutherford in exchange for... Dexter Lawrence, a 2024 second-rounder and a fifth-rounder. NEVER going to happen.
A Stefon Diggs trade including Giants star Dexter Lawrence will never go down
"Assuming the Giants continue to build around (Daniel) Jones with the costly investment in him, they must add a high-level pass-catcher. Giants head coach Brian Daboll has familiarity with Diggs from his time as the Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator between 2018 and 2021. During Daboll'ss tenure as a play-caller with the Bills, Diggs earned his first and only All-Pro nod in 2020."- Maurice Moton
We won't argue with the fact that the Giants need to bring in a player of Diggs' quality to help out the offense. After giving Jones a $160 million extension last offseason, general manager Joe Schoen needs to do whatever is possible to give Danny Dimes his best chance to succeed.
With that said, there's absolutely no way in hell Schoen is going to move Lawrence in order to bring in a wideout who turns 31 next November. Lawrence is coming off another incredible season for the Giants, taking home Second Team All-Pro honors for the second consecutive campaign.
Time and time again, Lawrence has proven to be one of the best pass-rushers in the league. With new defensive coordinator Shane Bowen on the way too, he'll look to have Sexy Dexy be the anchor for his unit from start to finish in '24. Lawrence is simply too valuable for this squad to even think about trading him.
Come late April, the Giants will be on the clock in the first round with the No. 6 overall pick. Plenty of mock drafts think they'll go with either Rome Odunze of Washington or LSU's Malik Nabers. Either of those guys will be an electric WR1 for Jones. As great as Diggs is, we'd much rather see Schoen go after a young wideout. Trading for Diggs doesn't make too much sense, especially not if a deal includes sending Lawrence to Buffalo.
