Giants trade for Leonard Williams

Recommended Posts

I don't know what to make of this.

 

He really hasnt been a steady player.

 

Guess it's just for some mid round picks, so if he can it together and play more consistently then the Dline obviously got better.

Also another guy with only a year left on his contract.

 

Giants are going to be spending most of that cap space next year on just trying to keep the roster together.

I like the trade. They have zero pass rushers.

So I guess that means BJ Hill is out? Or maybe Tomlinson.

 

Tomlinson/Dex/Leonard (after they pay him) going forward?

 

I dunno.

I like the trade. They have zero pass rushers.

 

And we still have zero pass rushers.

 

Leonard has 17 sacks in 5 years, he has none this year.

0 sacks on the year. 7 sacks the past 2 1/2 years. Wahoo!

So we are expected to get a third round pick for Collins (comp)

 

Basically traded a fifth for one of the better run stoppers in the NFL.

 

Wonder who's gone then probably Tomlinson since they are basically the same player and hope that BJ Hill bounces back.

Why would anyone be gone? Its a rotational line.

Why would BJ Hill be a goner? He's played in most snaps this year....as much as Tomlinson and Lawrence.

They have to pay Leonard.

 

Then next year they have to pay Tomlinson and or BJ Hill.

 

I doubt all three of them are on the team next year.

Tomlinson has two years left on his contract (through 2020), and BJ Hill has three (through 2021).

Also fun fact.

 

This is the first player trade ever between the Giants and Jets in NFL history.

Tomlinson has two years left on his contract (through 2020), and BJ Hill has three (through 2021).

 

And they still have to get paid.

 

Like I said I doubt both of them are on the team after 2020.

This sure looks pretty dumb.

It sure as hell beats having another knee jerk fire sale like a lot of irrational fans on twitter seem to prefer...

Yeah I should of clarified, I didnt mean this year.

 

I mean the team is 2-6.

 

It's not like we are making a playoff run, or are in need of help at the DT position stopping the run.

 

I guess they are hoping if they throw him out on the edge he'll return to all that hype coming out of college and be able to get after the QB, sometimes a change of scenery does wonders for a players career.

Because this season is already in the books.

 

I'm looking a head to how this team can get better which it failed to do this year, outside of maybe QB and Oline.

I don't want a fire sale but some guys lik Jenkins and Solder could easily fetch some value while off loading some massively bloated contracts we could use to keep the younger guys on the team coming up to pay days the next few years.

So Leonard Williams and his 7 sacks in 2 1/2 years and who you're going to have to pay $10mm + per year in a long term contract is part of the solution, but BJ Hill, with 5.5 sacks in 1 1/2 years and three years left on his cheap rookie contract is not????

 

So we're going to pay a $9-10mm premium and two draft picks for 1.5 more sacks????

Oh the fifth round pick becomes a fourth round pick if the Giants sign Leonard to a contract at the start of the league year.

 

Also Jets are paying for 4 million of the 6 million dollar cap hit.
