One NFL writer has a proposal that would help the New York Giants get the most out of their new deal with quarterback Daniel Jones this season. The Giants entrusted the mid-tier quarterback to $40 million annually after throwing 15 touchdowns last season.
The Giants must use the rest of their cap space efficiently to help the team grow from being a Wild Card team to a true Super Bowl contender. Even with Jones making just $3 million less than Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen does per season, Giants fans know the team needs to give their quarterback much more help than Allen gets for New York to be successful.
The New York Giants named in trade for Mike Evans
Ed Valentine with Big View Blue has a trade idea to better the Giants’ offense this season. Valentine thinks the Giants could trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl-winner and All-Pro wide receiver Mike Evans. Valentine wrote Evans would become the Giants best true wide receiver if a trade were to go through:
“If the Buccaneers decide to trade the 30-year-old, should the New York Giants be among the teams interested?
The 6-foot-5, 231-pound Evans has made the Pro Bowl four times and has surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in each of his nine NFL seasons. While the Giants do have talent and depth at wide receiver, and tight end Darren Waller as their No. 1 receiving option, they do still have question marks at the receiver position…
The price for Evans would seem likely to be closer to, or more than, the price for Waller — if the Bucs don’t reach a long-term deal and put him on the market.”
The Giants traded with the Las Vegas Raiders for Waller this offseason for a third-round pick. Waller is probably Jones’ best passing target before the 2023 season. Offering another third-round choice for a stud like Evans would be wise for a team looking to improve from scoring just seven points in its humiliating Divisional Round blowout loss in January.
