The New York Giants are one of the teams connected to the Arizona Cardinals as a potential trade partner for quarterback Josh Rosen. With the Cardinals largely expected to select quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick so Rosen, Arizona's first-round pick a year ago, would become expendable.
However, thus far, the Cardinals have not been actively shopping Rosen. They have taken calls but have not indicated whether or not Rosen is even available.
If the Giants have interested, they aren't willing to give up much.
According to SNY.tv's Ralph Vacchiano, they will not give up a first-round pick for Rosen and are unlikely to use their second-round pick.
The Giants have no interest in trading the sixth overall pick, and while the 17th pick could be available if they decide to trade up or down in the first round, they're not going to send it to Arizona for Rosen. So if the Redskins really do offer the 15th overall pick, the Giants are out.
Even the Giants' second-round pick (37th overall) might be too high of a price. They value that pick and think they can get a player with a first-round grade at that spot. So to trade it for Rosen, they might need something else in return. Now, if they decide to trade down from 17 and acquire another second-round pick, that one could be used as bait. Incidentally, the Redskins' second-round pick is No. 46.
This, of course, is convenient to let out to the media so that, if the Cardinals are going to trade Rosen, there appears to be lower demand, keeping the price down.
With two weeks remaining until the draft, something is bound to happen one way or another. Until then, the Giants are looking at draftable quarterbacks and the Cardinals continue to remain silent about their plans for the first overall pick and Rosen.
