Giants Trade For Raiders’ Hunter Renfrow In Intriguing Proposal

The New York Giants may have saved their season with a come-from-behind win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, but one thing remains clear: the Giants need receiving help.

New York has a host of wide receivers who could get touches throughout the year, such as Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Sterling Shepard and Wan’Dale Robinson, who is yet to make his 2023 debut as he recovers from a torn ACL. The Giants also added Parris Campbell into the mix this past offseason.

However, it is very obvious that Big Blue lacks elite talent at the wide receiver position, meaning that the club could be in the market for a wide out leading up to the trade deadline.

How about Las Vegas Raiders receiver Hunter Renfrow as a potential acquisition?

Renfrow has been a forgotten man in the Raiders’ passing game thus far this season, logging just one catch for 23 yards. That lone reception represents the only time he has been targeted.

If Las Vegas isn’t going to utilize Renfrow, Daniel Jones and the Giants could sure use him.

Renfrow was selected by the Raiders in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. After a couple of solid seasons of over 600 yards each to start out his NFL career, Renfrow broke out in 2021, hauling in 103 receptions for 1,038 yards and nine touchdowns en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.

Injuries and other factors slowed Renfrow down in 2022, with the Clemson product registering 36 grabs for 330 yards and a pair of scores.

While Renfrow is far from a big-play guy, he is a sure-handed receiver who could significantly open up the Giants’ passing game.

Perhaps New York could send a 2024 fourth-round draft pick along with a seventh-rounder to the Raiders for Hunter Renfrow’s services? That way, Las Vegas recoups some value for him, and the Giants would obtain a much-needed boost in their aerial attack.
