The New York Giants may already be moving on from former first-round pick Kadarius Toney.

According to a report, a trade market for the former Florida star is starting to emerge. Urgency could ramp up as the 2022 NFL Draft approaches.

Toney, a former Florida Gator, was a first round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft by the Giants. He caught 39 passes for 420 yards in 10 games, four of which he started.

Several teams reportedly still believe Toney has a high ceiling. Could a trade soon be in the works?

"Giants WR Kadarius Toney has an intriguing trade market," wrote Jeff Howe of The Athletic. "While I’ve heard from some teams that have no interest, others are high on the talent and ability to let him develop in their system. Sounds like he’s been available for a little while. The draft should create urgency."

Toney isn't currently participating in the Giants' voluntary offseason workout. That's a clear sign of his frustration with the NFL franchise.

The former first round pick's complicated relationship with the Giants began almost the moment he was drafted. He had a limited role early on in the 2021 season after battling a few injuries.

Toney's ceiling is clearly high. But teams will no doubt be weary of his commitment.
