Not one can replace Saquon Barkley, but the Giants have to try.                                                                                                                            His sources are telling him Giants are looking for a trade partner........... The 2 questions would be would the Colts consider it and would they (at least ) try to get a early round draft pick in exchange ?

lol , an early round draft pick? What has he done that warrants that type of draft capital? We aren’t a team loaded at RB position. The Giants wouldn’t consider a trade for Hines he isn’t an every down or in between the tackles back.

Hines doesn't have any value in trade. As a rookie, he average 3.7 YPC and 6.7 Y/R (low for a receiving back)...and his numbers (albeit in a small sample) are even below that this year.

 

He has more value to the Colts...who don't really have anybody else to catch the ball out of the backfield.

The Giants are in complete disarray.  They barely beat the Bucs (the Bucs kicker missed 2 xp's and a gimme game winner).

 

It's not like they're in a conference championship race and really need help for 4 weeks to make sure they're going to go 4-0 so they need to make a desperate trade.

 

I like Hines a lot, he's good in our system and getting better and better... he's not on the same page as Saquaon Barkley (I don't think any other RB in the NFL is, actually -- maybe Bell, Elliot and 2-3 more)... they would be insane to want to trade us anything higher than a 4th thinking Hines is going to save their season while Barkley's on the bench.

What’s Hines have to do with this?

 

And beat writers are generally voicing their opinion, not the teams.

 

Think about it, the Giants are not a playoff team and have a star RB, so why do they trade for a RB?

why would we trade Hines right now?  He's vital RB depth as a roleplaying receiving back and is just finding his timing with Brissett right now.  Besides, we're not in a position to easily replace him. 

 

If we plan on being competitive this year we need Hines or someone very much like him.

 

I mean he's not the last guy I give up or anything but at the same time.... why???

No, it's questionable as to if you could get a conditional 7th round pick for Hines.  

 

Saw the title and was coming to say the same.  7th at most.  A pick swap of 7th rounders more likely.

Possibly, at least when the draft order is clearer and it would be a move up in the 7th round for the Colts.  

 

But yes, almost no value for him.  Probably plenty of FA backs who play as well as him.

IF the Giants want a back it's not going to be a bigger name like a Gordon but someone that will know their role when the big man comes back. They'd be better off trading for a Dolphin back, the Phins are all about draft picks so they could get someone cheap..

Thus far, Hines has shown more potential than productivity. A trading partner wouldn't really look at potential as in depth as the organization that actually has the player, so any trade we make would shortchange us. Keep him, see if that potential keeps on growing. He's been good thus far this season

Just...

 

Dear God...

 

On so many levels.

We have a team in contention for the division and playoffs right now.  A draft pick does not make tackles, blocks, catch passes etc. until next year.  Trading Hines hurts the team right now and there are no guarantees next year’s pick will amount to anything.

    • Hughes really didn't do anything for us when he was here.  He wasn't working out in the 3-4 system and like @SteelCityColthas already said, he was very unhappy here.     In three years in Indy he had 51 tackles and 5 sacks and started just 7 total games.  He wasn't made for the system we were playing and he didn't want to play here anyway.     We got Kelvin Shepard in return who started 7 games (played in 15) and had 46 tackles the lone year here (basically equaling Hughes' 3 year output).     Hughes has gone onto a nice career in Buffalo, by changing position to edge rusher/DE.  Good for him.  Unless we switched to a 4-3 and moved him to a specialty role of edge rusher from the DE position, he would never have produced like that here.     It's easy to look at Hughes' numbers in Buffalo and think we lost out big on him, but the scheme we were running and his attitude in Indy wouldn't have worked out for him or us.  For what he was doing for us, it wouldn't be unreasonable to think he would have been cut and not made our final roster.  Instead we traded him and got decent value back, albeit for only 1 year.
    • The Fredd Young one hurt. We gave up two number 1s and he never really panned out. I'll even say I wasn't thrilled giving up the rights to Cornelius Bennett for Dickerson (although that trade helped put us back on the map) But MAN. Elway. Bob Irsay traded him after waiting a whole 5 weeks to (no hardball there), WITHOUT telling the GM at the time. Worst. trade. ever.
    • Draft position penalizes you for drafting successfully and winning in the previous year(s). I figure the NFL hates their GMs. "Let no good deed go unpunished."
    • Which team cut Kenny Moore because they didn’t think he could play?  Patriots?   Sometimes a change in scenery can work out.  The Bellicheck’s and Gruden’s of the world are not perfect either.
