After trading for Leonard Williams earlier in the day, the Giants are reportedly going to be making more moves at the deadlines. There could be more trades coming for the Giants, as they look to offload veteran players. Janoris Jenkins, Alec Ogletree and Nate Solder are all reportedly on the block. Here are the potential landing spots for New York Giants Players on the Block.
Jenkins is nicknamed “Jackrabbit” for his speed and ability to stick with receivers. He is on the trade block as the Giants look to get younger this offseason. There are plenty of teams that could use corners for the rest of this season, but also a lot of corners on the trade block.
The Kansas City Chiefs would be a good landing spot for Jenkins for a variety of reasons. Kansas City needs more help on the defensive side of the ball, specifically in the secondary. The Chiefs are also out of the division and are looking to build their team up for a Super Bowl run.
Other potential destinations: Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers.
The Giants acquired Ogletree before last season, but are already putting him on the trade block. In his two seasons with the team, he has 131 tackles, 11 passes defended and five interceptions. With the team not looking to compete, they may look for cheaper options at the position, as he is on the books until 2022.
Oakland is reportedly going to buy at the trade deadline. The Raiders could use a lot of help on defense this season, especially because they sit at 3-4. Vontaze Burfict is out for the season, which has left the linebacker core pretty thin. A trade for Ogletree wouldn’t cost too much, but the Raiders have the picks anyways to get it done.
Other potential destinations: Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, Baltimore Ravens
This is also Nate Solder’s second year with the team. After seven years with the New England Patriots, the Giants tried to improve their line by going out and getting Solder. The line is improved, but the team is not living up to expectations. There are plenty of teams who need offensive line help heading into the back half of the season, which should mean there is a solid market for Solder.
The Browns are openly in the market for a tackle. They have talked to Washington about a trade for Trent Williams, but if they can’t make a deal there, they might make a play for Solder. He would be an immediate improvement for the Browns. Cleveland just benched Greg Robinson last game and could use a player of Solder’s caliber if they want to make a run at the playoffs.
Other potential destinations: Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Chargers
