I emphasize rumor before I get killed. Just thought it was interesting. Saw it on Facebook, no link...

Miami Herald beat writer Adam Beasley says the Dolphins are looking into trading for a big name CB. A source close to the situation said that DRC's name has been discussed as a possible option.

thanks, good read, there are very few examples in here of players taking less to stay in NE.

They say Edelman, but Edelman was extended before the 2014 season. he had one good season under his belt and no Super Bowls, so it rings a little hollow when your examples are stretches.

Chris Long and Lagarette Blount are their examples besides Brady, who I believe has extenuating circumstances and players like Long and Blount are coaching creations, not discounts.

You saw this in the SB. Blount fumbled, he barely saw the field and out of no where James White becomes a star.

I agree with you people shouldn't compare their teams to Belichick, but not because of discounts players take to go there, but because no one coaches up players or prepares like they do in New England.
I would trade DRC and our 2nd round pick  
est1986 : 2/16/2017 5:56 pm : link
For B.Albert and their first round pick... anyone?
Don't trade DRC  
RetroJint : 2/16/2017 6:06 pm : link
He is one of the few corners around who has retained his speed deep into his career. He remains the fastest guy on the team. In that sense he reminds me of HOFer Mike Haynes, who was probably as fast the day he retired as he was when left Arizona St for the Patriots. Cut the shit. His disguised coverages and ball sense saved about 4 games last season. Plus he's a leader to the younger guys. He will help Apple, who is talented but needs a ton of work. Retain key talent. Sign free agents . Fuck trades unless moving up in the draft for a guy that they rate all by his lonesome .
Only works if we get a 2 or better  
Dry Lightning : 2/16/2017 6:07 pm : link
A 3rd is a crapshoot pick and he is a starter. Nickel IS a starter. And a damn good one.

When I say discounts I mean either less than they could get somewhere else or bargain type players that they get the most out of. So, I wasn't as clear as I meant to be. Basically, what I am trying to say is they don't overpay for anybody. That would be more accurate. We paid top dollar for Vernon. We paid big chunks of change to Harrison amd Jenkins. NE would never do that but our defense can be even better next year if we make the right moves. If we followed NE's model our defense would be bone dry. The Giants problem, imo, is that they HOPE players will work out without necessarily having a backup plan. Their plans at LB and TE are basically just get as many bodies in as possible and someone will rise to the top. Fine, but there needs to be some talent there. I liked the collection of LBs this year. TEs? Not so much. Or they tale the approach they did with Flowers and just gave him the job. Where was the competition the last 2 years? Mistakes like that have hurt this team way more than paying guys in FA. So, I hope they realize this and correct it.

They don't overpay I agree 100% with, it explains (partly) why there is no Chandler Jones in NE, no Jamie Collins NE.

Guys they knew were going to get a ton of money and they could replace.

They can get away with it though because they can coach up the next guy or find cast-offs like Chris Long and Jabal Sheard and maximize their production. Belichick turned UDFA Malcolm Butler into Darelle Revis light.

So, IMO, because they can coach up the players they need to they can get away with not overpaying anyone.

I think their coaching/system prowess allows them to dictate the roster and personnel decisions.

Not many teams can get away with that.

Can't wait to see their Donta Hightower offer. I bet they franchise tag him.
DRC was an integral part of our defense...

you saw how vulnerable we were vs the Packers when he left the game. It changed everything.

If you want to mess with the defense, then be prepared to miss the playoffs next year. Our offense is at the bottom of the league and so far we have done nothing to improve it. The defense was the only reason why we had success this past season.

DRC for Albert is not a good trade for the Giants  
Beer Man : 2/16/2017 7:48 pm : link
DRC was one of the top CBs last year, Albert was ranked 65 out of 78 tackles. His 2017 salary is $8.875M ($9.575M in 2018). I don't think his play in 2016 justifies that much pay/cap space. IMO he would have to take a pay cut, and the Giants would need to receive additional compensation if DRC is in the deal.

NO, I did not read through the entire thread. I dont have time for that shit. I just responded to the initial thread post which said there was a rumor that DRC would be traded.
DRC  
WillVAB : 2/16/2017 7:56 pm : link
He's a very good, cost controlled CB. Not sure how I feel about this if true.

It would take a pick and a player to be palatable because DRC would have to be replaced -- most likely with a high draft pick.
DRC is a great player  
TommyWiseau : 2/16/2017 8:02 pm : link
and had one of his best seasons last year. He is turning 31 in April but still has some wheels on him. He is cost controlled for the next 2 seasons. I would not trade him for anything less then a 2nd round pick

It opens up 5 million and it turns one of our older players into a younger cost controlled player.

That being said I'm a big DRC fan but from an asset management view would you be happy if we traded a 2nd rd pick for DRC? I wouldnt.

that make me say no, and they've already been mentioned by others.
But if I am making a trade, in a rather to very meh draft, especially for our #1 need of T, it'll be for a pick a lot closer to 33 than at 50 ish, not far from us,and not for DRC.

we'll still probably be looking at drafting, or signing via FA, another CB to provide more depth and to perhaps take over the Slot CB role eventually.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie trade rumour  
Big_Pete : 2/16/2017 8:28 pm : link
The reality is that DRC is also about to turn 31, there will be a decline in the not too distant future. Should there be a good value trade offer for DRC, it should at least be considered.

DRC currently has a cap value of $8.5m. If we were to trade him, we would have $4m in dead money and also get $4.5 in additional cap room to address other needs. From a playing time point of view.

As far as replacing DRC does, we have Jenkins and Apple (who is likely to keep getting better). We would need a third CB, but there are solid options in free agency plus there will likely be very good talent available in the draft who we could develop.

The real question is what would we be offered in return? Some combination of draft picks would be a viable option

Some have mentioned a possible trade for Jarvis Landry. Landry is in the final year of his rookie deal. He is going to need to be paid next year. Depending how he fits into new coach Adam Gase’s long term plans, Landry could potentially be available.

We are also going to need a wide receiver to replace Cruz and upgrade our receiving group. Landry is more of a short-mid range threat with dangerous YAC ability. I expect a case could be made that this could be an option for McAdoo’s west coast offence, particularly if it allowed Beckham to be more of a vertical threat.

After a trade, the last year of Landry’s rookie contract would have a cap impact of $893,852 with no guaranteed money. Which would mean we would also gain a little over $3.5m in cap room.

I am not suggesting that we should or should not trade DRC. On the surface it seems like it could be a viable option.

LauderdaleMatty : 2/16/2017 8:49 pm : link
But DRC played less snaps. Jenkins was our best CB. Apple could easily be almost as good spooner than later. Drop deep draft at CB.

Draft one early w an extra pick hat they get for him. Keeps the cap low for harder to find positions that they have to upgrade via FA long term.

I think If you have to manage a guys snap to keep him healthy it's. It a dumb idea to read him if you get value. Giants need to re up JPP. I trust them to find another CB a lot more than to find another DE
I'm very pro DRC  
adamg : 2/16/2017 8:51 pm : link
But if you could flip him for a pick and then flip the pick for Joe Thomas, that's a tough deal to say no to.

2 years of DRC or 3-4 years of Joe Thomas?

I don't think he's a secret. He's great already. He has the exact same number of receptions as Beckham in his career, but he's a slot receiver, so his yards are a lot less.

he returns punts too (and kicks occasionally).

He'll get paid when he's a FA

Plus he's OBJ's best friend. That would be an amazing locker room. They constantly compete. Odell ups his game when Landry is involved.

I wouldn't mind either a DRC for Landry or a DRC for Joe Thomas deal. But, those seem highly unlikely to happen. Miami would have to be crazy to trade Landry. He's probably their best player, except for - maybe - Suh.

You would think that nearly everyone's first goal would be making it to the Super Bowl the next two seasons, while Eli still here and we suddenly have a Championship caliber defense. Five on 1st or 2nd All Pro plus all rookie team Apple and JPP.

But many think that managing the cap for future years so the Giants don't find themselves as bottom fielders again is all important. I guess that's a valid way to approach the game. But trading DRC for draft choices? Some of the younger here may believe that you're going to use the picks to get two players as good as DRC, when it's more likely that you'll get one better than average guy who will become a starter. Trade DRC, JPP walks for an extra two million, and say goodbye to our elite new defense before it even got started.
Hypothetical trades  
Big_Pete : 2/17/2017 4:26 am : link
I think DRC is good value for NYG and personally think a trade is unlikely unless we are offered the proverbial "deal we can't refuse".

I don't believe a Jarvis Landry trade is likely at all. I expect the Dolphins will extend him soon.

In the spirit of hypothetical discussions in a slow news period (and that is all any of this really is), let's assume NYG might be willing to consider a deal of some kind.

Big Blue Unbiased suggests 4 alternate trade situations for DRC, what do you think?

1. Atlanta Falcons for G Andy Levitre

2. New Orleans Saints for RB Mark Ingram

3. Green Bay Packers for QB Brett Hundley

4. Detroit Lions for TE Eric Ebron

I wouldn't trade DRC  
pjcas18 : 2/17/2017 8:11 am : link
but if I did - let's say it was an offer I couldn't refuse, I wouldn't trade him for Ebron when you might be able to get Jared Cook or Jack Doyle or Ryan Griffin as a UFA

Is due over 8 mill and is not even a good LT . He's now probably best suited as a G. Know one in his right mind would trade for a contract like that. My guess is he will be cut very soon.
Albert is still a good LT.  
Big Rick in FL : 2/17/2017 10:50 am : link
Way better than what we have. Would probably be our best Olineman, but there is no point in trading an All-Pro caliber CB for a 33 year old player whose team is going to cut him.
It's not going to happen  
armstead98 : 2/17/2017 10:52 am : link
1. Players are almost never traded for other players in the NFL so stop with the Landry or Tunsil crap. The trade would be for picks.

2. It would probably be for a 3rd rounder at best. The Dolphins aren't dumb and know he's 31 with 1 more good season in him. I'd even be surprised if they got a 3rd.

In reality, the offer is probably more like a conditional 6th with the Dolphins just seeing if the Giants are thinking about cutting him. Based on last year Giants are going to keep him so they'll say no and that will be that.

Maybe w that extra 5 million u can Re do JPP and Hankins? No one wants the guy gone. People forget the cap hell the team was in. DRC had to has his snapped managed because he can't play full time.

It's no dumb. It's. It short sighted. Is just a different view point. I don't get the way people act like trading him is insane.

Bill Belichick the best NFL coach traded Collins and Chandler. He's trade DRC in a second I'd be thought it was good. Who's smarter the people losing their shit over the mere suggestion or the best coach in the lst 25 years?

The money he is due under his current contract is not guaranteed. As usual, the concept would be to get him to agree to a new deal with the trading partner that gives him some guaranteed money, but not as much as the nominal amount.

And Coughlin may well be interested if reports are accurate.

That's a terrible example when the guy you reference is capable of turning 3rd rounders and UDFA's into solid starting corners. And it's not as if there's more than one guy who's been doing it, it's basically Belichick and only Belichick. If we had a guy who could coach like that, we'd be making those personnel moves as well.
