Giants don’t have a spot for Stephon Gilmore
The New York Giants did a great job of bolstering their secondary this offseason by adding cornerback Adoree Jackson to pair with James Bradberry, so they’re set at corner for this coming season.
Chris Roling of Bleacher Report wrote an article where he listed one trade that every NFL team should make. When it comes to the Giants he believes they should make a move for New England Patriots’ cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
Offer: 2022 3rd-Round Pick for Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore
The New York Giants went all-in on insulating Daniel Jones with weaponry like Kenny Golladay this offseason, but it couldn’t hurt to keep an eye out for defensive upgrades, too.
One of those could be Gilmore of the Patriots, who hasn’t reported to mandatory minicamp in New England following an offseason of speculation that the team could move him.
Even after a rocky season last year, Gilmore only let up a 57.1 completion percentage on 49 targets, so the Giants shouldn’t be too gun shy about throwing out an offer for the veteran even if it means having to work out an extension right after a trade.
Gilmore, along with James Bradberry and others, would make for a rather formidable secondary as the Giants try to straddle that gap between the long-term and winning now.
The Giants aren’t paying Jackson $13 million a year to serve a third cornerback so adding Gilmore wouldn’t make sense at all for them.
New York also can’t afford to add Gilmore with just over $4 million of cap space, so this is a silly idea.
