The NFL trading deadline is just days away, and after talented teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers made headline-making trades to fortify their rosters, you can believe other contenders are rushing to get something done in time.
The New York Giants are a surprising and impressive 6-1 on the season, but there are still those who think they may be nothing more than paper tigers who will come down to Earth later in the season.
They could use another weapon, particularly at wide receiver, and thus the rumor mill is starting to heat up with players they may be going after in order to solidify their playoff hopes.
These three players could definitely help New York’s cause moving forward.
1. Jerry Jeudy
Jerry Jeudy is a young, third-year wideout who is starting to emerge as a difference-maker, but the problem is he plays for the struggling Denver Broncos, a team that has an offense that is about as high-powered as a stagecoach.
Through seven games, he has 386 yards and two touchdowns, and he averages 16.1 yards per reception, which is 11th in the NFL.

Could this supposed sighting be a sign of something impending?
2. D.J. Moore
The Carolina Panthers may be having a fire sale after sending Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers, and Moore is one player who has been rumored to be on the trading block.
He could give Giants quarterback Daniel Jones a reliable target, and at age 25, he should have many good years left.
Moore put up more than 1,150 yards in each of the last three seasons, and that type of production is sorely needed in New York.
3. Brandin Cooks
If the Giants prefer a more veteran wideout, how about Brandin Cooks?
He’s still relatively young at 29, but he has played in two Super Bowls as a member of the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.
Cooks has had six seasons with over 1,000 receiving yards, which would make him another productive target for New York.
