Giants Internally Explore Trade For Josh Rosen

Mar 27, 2019 6:56 AM

The New York Giants are internally exploring a trade for Josh Rosen.

The Arizona Cardinals have been rumored to prefer Kyler Murray at No. 1 and will listen to offers for Josh Rosen. Rosen was the No. 10 pick in last year's draft.

The Giants could still also select a quarterback in this year's draft with Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones all potential first round picks at the position.

The future of Eli Manning as quarterback of the Giants beyond 2019 remains uncertain.

49ers Confirm They Were Unwilling To Trade No. 2 For Odell Beckham

Mar 25, 2019 9:07 AM

Jed York confirmed the San Francisco 49ers pursued a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. with the New York Giants.

“We were definitely in it,” York said. “We were aggressive. But I think (the Giants) wanted different things than we had to offer. I think it would have been very hard for us to just give up a first-round pick and not get a ton in return, other than just the player, knowing that the second pick in the draft is a very, very valuable pick.”

The 49ers, however, did not pursue a trade for Antonio Brown.

John Mara Was 'Reluctant' For Giants To Trade Odell Beckham

Mar 25, 2019 8:30 AM

New York Giants ownership considers the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns among the toughest moves they have ever made.

John Mara even insisted that he gave a "reluctant approval" after thinking about it.

The Giants traded Beckham for a first-round pick, third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. The deal came seven months after Beckham received a five-year deal worth up to $98.5 million.

"I will tell you it was a reluctant approval on my part because I happen to like Odell [Beckham Jr.] very much, and I recognize the unique talent that he has," Mara said. "It's not easy to trade that player to another team."

Dave Gettleman: Giants Can Win While Building

Mar 19, 2019 8:29 AM

The New York Giants are building a new roster, but Dave Gettleman says they can still win games while doing so.

"Really and truly, you can win while you're building," Gettleman said.

Last week, the Giants traded Odell Beckham, Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.

"We're building. The object of this is to win as many games as possible every year," Gettleman said. "So we're building. We were 3-13 when I took over. We were 5-11 last year -- 12 of those games were a touchdown or less. We're building. I don't understand why that is a question."

Bills Had No Interest When Giants Called About Odell Beckham Trade

Mar 18, 2019 8:25 AM

Brandon Beane, however, wasn't interested in discussing a deal.

Dave Gettleman is a disciple of Ernie Accorsi, who similarly tried to scare up offers with the Chargers in the Eli Manning trade of 2004.

The Giants ultimately traded Beckham to the Cleveland Browns.

Mar 16, 2019 6:37 PM

The San Francisco 49ers had interest in trading for Odell Beckham Jr. both during the 2018 season and again in the offseason.

The 49ers' best trade asset for the Giants was the No. 2 overall pick.

"Someone with the Giants told me they were asking for the second pick of the draft from the 49ers, which the 49ers weren’t willing to do," wrote Jay Glazer.

Glazer Sensed Giants Planned To Take Best OBJ Offer By Certain Date

Mar 16, 2019 6:34 PM

Jay Glazer predicted in mid-February that the New York Giants would trade Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason.

Glazer received criticism from some on the prediction as the Giants were posturing publicly that they wouldn't trade Beckham.

Glazer explained his reasoning on the prediction.

"I knew things were heating up but I also knew the Giants’ asking price was way too high," wrote Glazer. "There were teams that were interested that were asking me, 'Are you sure they’re motivated to do this, are they really or are they just expecting one of us to do something crazy for him?'

"The Giants were trying to act like they needed to be blown away with something and it seemed to me that they had a plan to take the best available offer by a certain date or time. If they waited, would they have gotten more? I don’t know. I know their asking price at first was pretty outlandish."

The Giants traded Beckham to the Cleveland Browns at the start of the NFL's new league year.
