After trading Odell Beckham Jr. earlier this week, the New York Giants are looking to make another blockbuster deal. However, this time around it involves the team acquiring talent, not shipping it out of town.
This offseason hasn’t been terrific for the Giants as they’ve lost Beckham and star safety Landon Collins. Outside of Offensive Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley, New York doesn’t have enough pieces to be in win-now mode.
If the Giants are ever going to be contenders again, they’ll need to find a successor to Eli Manning. Well, it appears the front office is interested in Josh Rosen of the Arizona Cardinals.
According to a source close to ESPN insider Dan Graziano, the Giants will have interest in Rosen if he is made available.

Arizona hold the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft and many believe it will select Kyler Murray. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury is very fond of the Oklahoma quarterback.
In the event that the Cardinals select the Heisman Trophy winner, Rosen would most likely be on the trading block. Besides, the former first-round pick would most likely net a decent return.
Rosen threw for 2,278 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions back in 2018.
With two first round picks in this draft the Giants have more than enough assets to land Rosen. Fortunately for general manager Dave Gettleman, the price for the UCLA product could be even lower.
Considering all the chaos that has gone down in New York, landing a young gunslinger would certainly ease the tension this offseason.
