It certainly sounds like the New York Giants have reached their breaking point with Kadarius Toney. Pat Leonard of the Daily News reported on Friday that New York is looking to trade its former first-round pick.

The Giants selected Toney with the 20th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he had 39 receptions for 420 yards.

According to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, the trade market for Toney is "intriguing." Some teams have no interest, while others are high on his talent.

If the Giants end up dealing Toney at some point over the next week, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him land on one of these three teams.

It's no secret the Falcons need help at wide receiver. In just this offseason alone, they lost Russell Gage to the Buccaneers and Calvin Ridley to a lengthy suspension.

The Falcons may not want to use the No. 8 overall pick on a wideout next Thursday. If that's the case, why not pursue Toney? Not only would he give Arthur Smith's offense a dynamic weapon, he'd have the opportunity to show what he can do in an expanded role.

We saw just how successful Cordarrelle Patterson was for Atlanta this past season. Toney could hypothetically have similar success for the Falcons if he can just stay on the field.

A receiving corps of Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard and Sammy Watkins just isn't going to cut it, especially since Aaron Rodgers' championship window won't be open for that much longer.

The Packers could, in theory, use one of their first-round picks on a wide receiver in this year's draft. That being said, the front office would be wise to double-up on wideouts over the next week. Drafting a talented rookie while also acquiring Toney in a trade would help out a position group that recently lost Davante Adams.

Green Bay has plenty of draft capital on Day 2 of the NFL Draft to get a deal done with New York.

Kansas City Chiefs

It was recently reported that the Chiefs will not pursue 49ers star Deebo Samuel. Perhaps he's out of their price range because he's eligible for a contract extension. That won't be the case for the Toney.

Toney is an intriguing playmaker, there's no doubt about it. However, he won't cost nearly as much as Samuel would.

The Chiefs have shown in the past they have no problem taking on a talented player with a few off-field concerns, and understandably so. They have a championship culture that gets the best out of each player - on and off the field.

It's possible the Chiefs use one of their Day 2 picks to land Toney in a trade next week. That would certainly soften the blow of trading away Tyreek Hill.
