The NFL trading deadline has come and gone, with the Giants standing pat.
The team did not deal Hakeem Nicks, despite the slight buzz of rumors.
John Fennelly, Lead WriterLike I stated earlier, a major trade for a player would be at several players’ expense. The Giants just don’t have the cap room to make any kind of significant addition.
Trading away an established player (such as Nicks) while the Giants are still mathematically in the hunt for the division would send the wrong message to the remaining players. The Giants have been known for their loyalty throughout the years and such a deal would go against that grain.
