The fire sale is officially on.  Yesterday, the Giants shipped a ‘cancerous’ Eli Apple off to the New Orleans Saints.

This morning, Dave Gettleman and company sent Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison to the Detroit Lions for a 5th round pick, via Ian Rapoport.

The Giants are moving away from the 30-year-old nose tackle and one of the best run stuffers in the league who is making 8 million this year.  This move comes as a shock to Giants fans, but the move clears cap space for next season.  Also, Snacks hasn’t been playing much this season anyway.  Against the Falcons, Snacks only appeared on the field for 33 snaps, which was less than 50%.

The move also complies move drafts picks for the Giants in next years draft.  Fans have already voiced their disgust with this trade on Twitter early this morning, fans wondering why the Giants did not get more for Snacks?  The Giants were able to get a 4th round pick for Apple, and that’s because Apple is younger and has a more cap friendly contract.

Dalvin Tomlinson will now be the guy that takes over at nose tackle.  Tomlinson, 2nd year man out of Alabama, better bring some sweet mouthpieces as he will have some big shoes to fill.  However, the Giants have faith in Tomlinson considering this season is a bust, the Giants have moved from ‘win now’ (lol) to a full rebuild.
