On this Halloween, the Giants should find themselves with a treat by deciding to make a deal at the trade deadline at 4 p.m.
The season is in the dumps, and the Giants certainly have some tradable commodities on their roster. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Shane Vereen seem to be the top names out there if Jerry Reese decides to make his first trade since 2013 when he got Jon Beason from the Panthers.
Reese needs to make a move for two reasons: 1) Acquire picks for the 2018 NFL Draft 2) Save his job.
The Giants need reinforcements in a few positions, but none more than the offensive line. In 2018, if there isn't a big competition on the offensive line, fans may bring pitchforks and torches with them to Quest Diagnostics Training Center during camp. With more picks, the Giants can load up on those prospects, and fill in everything else they need.
And for Reese, this could be a move that saves his job for next season. He hasn't gone outside the box, or has virtually taken no risks in his tenure. If he wants to stay with Big Blue, he needs to make a move that opens the eyes to owners John Mara and Steve Tisch.
Rodgers-Cromartie and Vereen could be perfect compliments to playoff contenders, and Reese should exploit it to set himself up for a 2018 offseason...that is if he doesn't have to clean out his office.
