The New York Giants have an interesting situation developing at the wide receiver position. On any given week, they could have a few talented players to work with and the next completely deprived of quality. Luckily, they were able to return rookie second-round pick Wan’Dale Robinson in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens, hauling in three perceptions for 37 yards and a touchdown.

However, with big-money pass catcher Kenny Golladay currently rehabilitating from an MCL strain and Kadarius Toney struggling through hamstring injuries, the Giants are still thin at the position. In fact, one NFL insider believes that general manager Joe Schoen could look at the trade market to potentially offload one of their ailing receivers.

The New York Giants need Kadarius Toney back, but it’s a matter of when:

Notably, Toney has only appeared in two games this season, missing the last four games consecutively. He played in 12% of snaps against the Tennessee Titans and 38% against the Carolina Panthers, hauling in two receptions for a whopping 0 yards.

Given his inability to stay healthy, it is possible the Giants float his name to see what type of draft capital comes back, but it would have to be a significant return to consider parting ways with a talent of his caliber.

Rival executives wouldn’t be surprised if general manager Joe Schoen tries to make a move here.

Teams seem to be keeping tabs on Toney and the development of his injury status. While he recently injured his opposite hamstring than the one he’s been nursing for several weeks now, there is still hope he can make an impact upon his return.

The Giants continue to win games without him, so eventually, getting him back could be the boost they need to help the wide receiver core and provide Daniel Jones with another target.

Teams also are keeping an eye on Toney, who has two catches for zero yards on the season and has struggled to stay healthy. Mostly, teams want to know what’s up with Toney, whose obvious talent has been overshadowed.

The reality is simple, the Giants aren’t getting any value out of Toney at the moment, but if he can finally make his way back to the field, he could transform the offense into a different beast. However, it is a big IF, so the Giants should be listening to offers, at the very least.
