New York Giants: 3 players that should be traded at the deadline

New York Giants, Leonard Williams

The New York Giants fell to 1-6 on the season after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in week 7, and that all but writes the story for the rest of the campaign.

General manager Dave Gettleman has some work to do if ownerships elects to give him the luxury of determining the future of the team from here on out. His questionable draft picks and poor allocation of draft capital in trades make Gettleman a liability at the moment. The Giants need to be thinking about their future and not relying on the past three years as a detriment to their hopes and dreams.

With that being said, they must look to the November 3 trade deadline as an opportunity to gain valuable capital for next off-season. They currently only have five picks in the 2021 NFL draft and must add more, especially if they expect to be hiring a new general manager at the end of the season.

Three players the New York Giants should trade:

1.) Evan Engram

Evan Engram has the potential to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL, he just simply can’t catch the football. He has the most drops out of any tight end since 2017 with 21, and that streak didn’t end against Philadelphia in week 7.

Engram dropped two balls on the night — the first bounced off his hands and resulted in an interception, and the second represented a game-sealing catch that would’ve allowed the Giants to burn time off the clock.

At this point in time, Engram’s value is plummeting with every passing game considering his inconsistencies. Some believe that he can fetch a third-round pick from another team, who still see him as a talented player with potential.

The reality is, he is a pass-catching tight end that simply can’t run block and has bad hands. If a team is willing to offer a third-round pick, the Giants should take it without hesitating, as they are better off moving on with the pieces they do have and allocating a mid-round pick toward a high upside receiving option at the position.
