He's not going to make miracles happen on defense but I'd rather watch him progress than give Eli a full season goodbye. Shame it didn't work out for Eli the last couple years and it'll be interesting to see if he gets dealt or released so he can try and start somewhere else. 

The way he's been playing, who'd want him? Unless they mainly use a running game.

There's a certain former Giants coach who runs the Jaguars who might be interested given their current QB situation.

Yeah we're good, but the level the AFC East is on is abysmal.  You want at least some challenges to make things interesting and keep motivation up.  Someone to at least push you in the division, to be prepared for the playoffs and the better teams.

 

Clemson and Bama could beat the Week 3 Dolphins and Jets.

He'd still be pretty capable on a contending team with pieces around him.. 

Or a desperate team that really needs a QB. 

 

With that said he has a no trade clause, so he's only going to go to the right situation.

Isn’t he also getting paid an asston? You’d have to find a contender with no QB and the cap space to fit him in.

He isn’t going anywhere.

Oh I agree. Doesn't mean Coughlin feels the same way though!

The early feeling the Giants beat writers get is that Eli doesn’t want to be traded.  He and his wife have four kids under the age of eight and he doesn’t much want to uproot his life at this stage of his career especially when he already has two rings.

I could see the team offering him the chance to take some snaps in the second half of their final home game so the crowd can say goodbye to him, but he doesn’t seem like somebody who would want that.  I’d be surprised if he didn’t retire after the season.

I know a lot of Giants fans have crapped on Eli for years because they waited far too long to start thinking about the future.  But I think whatever bitterness the fans have for him will be gone by 2021 when they bring back the 2011 team for an anniversary celebration.

Trade him to the Jets. He stays in New York, gets play time while Darnold is out, and can mentor Darnold when he returns.

The Jets aren't really playing for anything, which would warrant getting Eli.  Would the Jets give up more than a 7th rounder for an emergency QB making that much money?

 

If they were a QB away from a playoff run, maybe go for it.  But there's holes in a lot of spots.

Honestly, I'm a firm believer in having a young QB learn from a veteran. Rather its learning from sitting the bench or having that veteran QB on the bench, it's how I would want to train a new QB in the NFL. Is that worth giving up a 7th rounder for two years to somebody making that much money? Glad I'm not a GM and having to make that call.

The thing is, he’s not a Drew Brees or even a Phillip Rivers veteran that has shown he will carry the team by himself. Eli’s not that guy anymore. If you’re good enough to compete, you likely have someone already better than Eli and if you don’t, getting him and eating that cap space is not going to make you good enough for the trade to payoff. Never mind the fact that, as stated, he likely has no desire to up and move his family in the middle of what will likely be his final season.

I was annoyed by ESPN passing Kaepernick this morning, but if a team is gonna do that, then why the fuck not sign Kaepernick?

Whilst I'm not defending it, and I would probably prefer Kaepernick as a player, Vick does have experience with the Steelers playbook, and it's not liked its changed much since he retired.

If he's going anywhere, and the money gets eaten significantly, I could see him waving his no trade to go to Jacksonville. 

I also would approve of him being traded for Jalen Ramsey. >_>

I don't see how a 39 year old Michael Vick who hasn't played since 2015 is the solution to any problem. Not like he's a scheme fit for any team either. He's a short, mobile and left-handed. It's a major adjustment to put him into any offence.

We've now traded next year's first round pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick, I assume to play cornerback, but perhaps to be backup QB. I value him as a player, but I value that draft pick more given that it's likely a top 10 at this point.
