Can we get a decent ransom for Nyheim ?

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.

    • I'd say divide everyone into two groups. Those who want a shot at the Colts, and those who want another team. If only one person wants another team, they get it. That way you at least have a few that are vested in non-Colts picking.   After you clear as many non-Colts folks as possible, do a lottery for everyone (lottery with team selection order).   Purely my opinion, but I think first come first serve hurts interest level. And I think it's important to try and be fair, but also match folks to a team they are interested in. 
    • I'm going to believe this tweet over the one you posted. Just seems too far out of character for Ballard to offer MORE than 15.5 per year for Watt.   Charles Robinson @CharlesRobinson Unless the #Colts, #Browns and #Titans are straight up lying, this is not what I’ve been told. I’ve been told by multiple Watt suitors that the $23 million guaranteed in Watt’s Arizona deal was near ceiling for their total $. Teams were trying to get Watt for roughly $12 mil per.
    • I agree but I’m starting to think it’s inevitable. Guard market is a little younger and cheaper in free agency. So we go that way or draft a guy that can start day 1. I would draft if him regardless of LT plans
    • My "in general" thoughts on Oke....  He's a great kid, hard worker, but average traits. He was a slightly above average ILB at Stanford. IMO, he was/is undersized for an ILB/MIKE. He was the best Stanford had to fill the middle, so I understand why they had him there. Stepping up to the NFL though is a challenge in the middle. He succeeded when his scope was limited to passing downs LB. He was given more snaps, and played earlier downs last year, and simply struggled. He's never really been a "fast processor" (like Leonard is), but his bigger issue IMO is simply vs the run, and especially in traffic. He's not been physical enough to shed a lot of blockers, and isn't fast enough processing or agility wise to avoid the blocking in the first place.   Maybe the game slows down for him in year 3? Maybe he picks up good weight and strength? IMO, he'd have to significantly improve in both those areas to grow into a 3 down guy. May sound simple, but it's a lot to ask though. If he can't, we need to look at going back to a MIKE by committee situation. I know it doesn't sound ideal, but the Walker/Oke combo in 2019 was pretty darn good. Both did well at their limited rolls. Walker was a tackle machine, and Oke did much much better focusing on the passing game. That said, the fly in the ointment though is the rip/liz stuff added to the D. I think that impacted a lot of guys in pass coverage including DBs and LBs. Good for some, bad for others. Year 3 will be interesting.   As far as FS, I'm cautiously optimistic there. Good the first half of the season when playing downhill vs what was in front of him. Very poor the second half when QBs started testing him. IMO, same weaknesses he had in college. He's a monster hitter, but get's burnt on the back end. I do think he can take a step forward this year so long as he's committed to re-working his game, and being more disciplined. That said, FS is a wildcard to me. And back to the rip/liz impact, if we continue to play more C3 single high, traits like Hooker's will be missed. 
    • In support of East Streets view...    what I’ve read about Williams since he joined the Giants is...   disappointment.  Underachiever.  And when his play started to tick up what I read was...    sure, he’s playing better now...   it’s his contract year.    Personally....   not a big fan of players like this...   Clowney too.   There’s a term for players like this....    coach killer.    They're paid to be great.   And they flash greatness from time to time.  It’s a tease.   But not nearly enough to be worth their money.   They’re paid on their reputation, but ultimately they rarely give you enough bang for the buck.    Pass.
