The short answer is no, probably not…but you never know what might happen as deadlines creep near. The New York Giants don't have any obvious glaring needs, but the trade rumors around the league are heating up and we wanted to get in on the fun.
Down by the Carolina Panthers, rumors of a fire sale have put the names of both DeAngelo Williams and Steve Smith into the mill, Detroit's general manager has a reputation for being willing to deal and plenty of teams around the league have found themselves in the unenviable position of needing to replace injured guys.
That said, we doubt the Giants will be involved in anything major (certainly not with the caliber player of Smith or Williams). In fact, it's most likely the Giants do absolutely nothing before today's deadline…but it's not altogether out of the question.
If a fire sale does go down somewhere, Jerry Reese will see if he can scoop up a good player for less than cost. And hey, Reese already tried to upgrade Mitch Petrus once this season so why not again? And you never know when a team desperate for secondary help calls for back-end of the roster guys like Tyler Sash or Justin Tryon. But these are the kind of deals, if any, we'd expect.
