Before the NFL trade deadline came to pass, the Giants were active in obtaining DL Leonard Williams from the Jets. However, many believed GM Dave Gettleman would move players like Janoris Jenkins or even Nate Solder, who were getting several inquiries from other teams.
And while the Giants may have listened to those calls, they didn't even entertain those that involved TE Evan Engram.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, one team thought to call about the 2017 first-rounder out of Ole Miss. But no matter the offer, the Giants remained steadfast in keeping Engram in Giants blue.
It's unknown what the Giants were offered for No. 88, but it is safe to say Engram is expected to be an integral piece of the Giants' offense for the foreseeable future. He has been highly involved in the offense in his third season, hauling in 38 receptions for 419 yards and three touchdowns through seven games.
Known as a matchup nightmare, Engram continues to show more and more of that characteristic as the weeks go by. He has also shown improved blocking this season after coming into the league as someone known more for his playmaking than blocking.
Engram also has leadership qualities in him, and that's something that has showed recently as well. The Giants covet him on their offense (as they should) and he doesn't look to be going anywhere anytime soon.
