Will the New York Giants be trading for a quarterback this offseason? It’s highly unlikely after head coach Joe Judge firmly committed to Daniel Jones, but not impossible. General Manager Dave Gettleman can be unpredictable at times.
Gettelman traded away the face of the Giants’ franchise just a few seasons ago. It is not crazy to think Gettleman makes a move to acquire a player like Deshaun Watson or Matthew Stafford.
On Monday, BetOnline released odds on the potential destinations for both Watson and Stafford. The Giants were a 28/1 for Watson and 35/1 for Stafford. Vegas oddsmakers are not sold the G-Men will sit this one out.
The Giants are not the favorites to acquire one of these two quarterbacks. New York would have to give up valuable assets to acquire one of these quarterbacks, especially Watson.
What are the favorites?
The New York Jets are considered favorites to land Watson at 15/4, while the Indianapolis Colts are considered favorites to land Stafford at 3/1.
Watson came out publicly saying his preferred landing spot would be the New York Jets. Why not go to a team that has a more built-up roster, and there are still in New York, the Giants?
Ultimately, do not expect the Giants to be serious players for either Watson or Stafford. However, it would be foolish if Gettleman didn’t at least put a call in to see what the asking price is on both.
