The NFL's trade deadline is no longer a wasteland of silence.
In recent years, teams have become more willing to move pieces and players to improve their rosters for a potential playoff push, much like the rest of the North American sports leagues.
The 2019 trade deadline is about a week away as player movement between teams will end on Oct. 29 at 4 p.m.
In regard to the Giants (2-5), it's going to be tough for General Manager Dave Gettleman to make any big acquisitions.
Per ESPN's NFL Insider Field Yates, the Giants only have $2.2 million in salary cap space heading into the deadline. That puts the Giants at the No. 28 overall spot in the NFL in terms of most salary cap space. Only the Ravens ($2.1M), Saints ($1.9M), Falcons ($1.7M), and Vikings ($630K) have less cap space. The Colts lead the NFL in cap space with $43.5M available, well ahead of the No. 2 team, the Browns, who have $32.9M.
While the current outlook is bleak, the future holds a more promising look. According to Spotrac, the Giants will have $66 million in salary cap space next offseason -- the 10th most in the NFL.
