Sure the big news in the NFL this weekend is the trade between the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Rams, with the Lions sending quarterback Matthew Stafford to the West Coast in exchange for multiple future first-round picks, a third round pick and quarterback Jared Goff. But the other 30 NFL teams are still making moves, including the New York Giants.

Now, admittedly my philosophy is that when you find the quarterback you think can give you a chance to compete for titles for the next 10 years you do what you have to do. The Giants, though, simply don’t have that much to give. Not, at least, without destroy their ability to put a good team around Watson.

It looks like the Houston Texans are in the midst of a potential full-on fire sale, and the New York Giants should be monitoring. Deshaun Watson wants out, and we have covered that situation here, although it does appear unlikely that the Giants will be the team that Watson ends up landing with. But it appears that another iconic star will be departing from Houston as well, and this is where the Giants really could benefit.

For an ever so brief moment, a trend appeared to be developing when it came to the New York Giants and projections for the 2021 NFL draft. Most mock drafts had been trending towards Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle at No. overall, but things have changed in recent days.

The Kansas City Chiefs took a risk draft Tyreek Hill and have been rewarded with one of the best and speediest wide receivers in the NFL

After a 6-10 season in Joe Judge’s first season as head coach, the Giants are looking to make the leap to contender in 2021 after seeing their postseason dreams dashed on the final Sunday of the year. Picking outside the Top 10 for the first time since 2017, here’s a look at what the experts think Big Blue could do with the 11th pick.

Deshaun Watson reportedly put in a trade request from the Houston Texans this week and if the team honors it he would be sure to garner a big trade package, possibly larger than what the Dallas Cowboys got for Herschel Walker in 1989. Former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky, an analyst on ESPN, floated the idea that the New York Giants should make a run at the Texans star. But the trade package he floated didn’t exactly receive a round of applause.

They get players paid. Still, they are not the only way to judge pass rushers. Truthfully, probably not even the best way.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! As a general manager in this moment, if you were ever going to take a swing, this is a swing to take,” Orlovsky said. As a general manager the last thing you want to do is look back with regret that we didn’t try hard enough, that we didn’t throw in one extra first-rounder.
