Proposed NY Giants-Steelers trade would land Brian Daboll a former first-round RB

Might this be something Joe Schoen will be interested in?

The loss of Saquon Barkley is going to sting for the NY Giants offense - yes, we know you probably already knew that. While the addition of Devin Singletary will help ease the pain, the Giants need more depth behind him.

Eric Gray is entering Year 2 after a rough rookie season, while Tyrone Tracy Jr., a fifth-round pick in 2024, will see time as well. Might Joe Schoen try and bring in a veteran RB to help things out, however? That could end up being the case and Bleacher Report thinks Najee Harris could be a target in mind for the front office.

A Giants-Steelers trade including Najee Harris would help out the NY offense

"A Pro Bowl selection in his rookie campaign, a fresh start for Najee Harris could provide the breath of air he needs to work back to his high level of production. Despite amassing over 1,000-yards in each of his first three seasons as a pro, his volume has annually decreased leaving many to speculate when Pittsburgh HC Mike Tomlin will ultimately turn the keys over to former undrafted rookie Jaylen Warren. Considering the Steelers declined Harris' fifth-year option, a move sooner rather than later would present Pittsburgh with some remanence of a return, even if it's a late-round or compensatory selection."

Bleacher Report's Ryan Fowler

In this trade proposal, the Giants would send Pittsburgh a 2025 sixth-round pick and a 2026 fourth-round pick. It's not a lot for the G-Men to give up, and they'd be adding a pretty talented back to the RBs room.

Harris, a 2021 first-rounder, has posted 1,000 yards in his first three seasons in the league. However, as Fowler noted, the Steelers didn't pick up his fifth-year option, so he's entering the last campaign of his rookie contract. It seems as though he could be headed out of town next offseason, which could lead to the Steelers front office wanting to try and get something in return for him.

This is where the Giants could come calling. They signed Singletary to a three-year contract, but if they can provide him and Daniel Jones with some extra help via Harris, with it only costing a couple of mid-round/late picks, it'd be well worth it. Harris could be a stud back for this team, with him and Singletary being a solid 1-2 punch. We'd be all for this.
