REPORT: One trade that would predict doom for Dave Gettleman’s Giants tenure
The New York Giants are in the works lately after trading linebacker Markus Golden to the Arizona Cardinals. While that particular move spells no danger for general manager Dave Gettleman, there is apparently one such move that could.
[On the topic of DL Leonard Williams] — “Right now he’s still due another $11.3 million in salary and with two sacks it’s fair to wonder who’s going to want to pay that,” stated Vacchiano. “But the Giants weren’t the only team that called the Jets about Williams at the trade deadline last year and he’s generally regarded as a very good defensive lineman, even if his sack total is wanting. Gettleman wants to keep Williams and build the Giants’ defensive front around him, so he’s not going to want to give him away. If the Giants do deal him, though, it would be a strong indication that they’ll be moving on from Gettleman at the end of the year.”
It seems Leonard Williams could wind up being Dave Gettleman’s last standing leg in New York if he’s traded from the team anytime soon.
Since becoming the general manager back in 2018, Gettleman has been willing to push the limits when it comes to affording the Giants with a talented, sturdy amount of edge rushers–often times resolving to his higher draft picks to do so.
Regardless, if the Giants once again fail to turn around what has been an abysmal season son far, Gettleman may still find himself out of a job with the New York franchise. They’re currently 1-5 through Week 7 of the season.
