NFL trade deadline passes quietly for New York Giants
The 2017 NFL trade deadline handed quietly for the 1-6 New York Giants. There have been no strikes so as to add gamers, or to shed veteran gamers to dump wage and achieve draft picks. The solely factor the Giants did Tuesday was to re-sign veteran defensive finish Devin Taylor whereas putting Cap Capi on IR.
In different phrases, regardless of all of the hypothesis right here and elsewhere, and a number of the flashy strikes made by different NFL groups, the Giants did precisely what you needed to determine they’d do — nothing.
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie remains to be a Giant, at the very least for the following 9 video games. So, took are Jonathan Casillas and Shane Vereen. There was no blockbuster, franchise-changing Eli Manning deal.
The Giants didn’t trade away draft picks for an offensive lineman, or for extensive receiver Jarvis Landry.
Coach Ben McAdoo mentioned earlier this week that “our players are our players.” The Giants will now return to work with their 1-6 roster, making an attempt to get higher for the ultimate 9 video games and in no higher place for the 2018 NFL Draft than they have been earlier than the deadline.
