Giants News 10/31: Reaction to Loss of Seattle, Close of Trade, More Headlines

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Should the Giants trade for a wide receiver? If the price is right, sure | Great Blue View

BBV’s Ed Valentine’s stance is that GM Joe Schoen and the Giants need to remember they’re building for the long haul. Her surprising success this season shouldn’t make her give up premium draft assets for a win-now, quick-fix player.

However, that doesn’t mean that Schön shouldn’t do anything. If an opportunity presents itself to potentially help the Giants in the second half of the season AND in the years to come, it should definitely be considered. Assuming that opportunity doesn’t cost the Giants’ premium future draft assets.
