The New York Giants were hoping to see talented tight end Evan Engram break out in 2019 after struggling with injuries in his sophomore season. Unfortunately, the 25-year-old tight end did not put up the kind of production that the Giants were hoping for.
Engram was only able to play in eight games and struggled mightily with injuries. He caught 44 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns in those eight appearances, but the team may be losing faith that he can stay healthy.
According to a report from ESPN’s Matthew Berry, the Giants could be open to trading Engram in the near future due to their lack of faith that he will be able to stay healthy for a full season.
An inside source says the Giants don’t believe Evan Engram can ever stay healthy. The source believes Engram is a candidate to be traded during the upcoming season.
If the Giants were to place Engram on the trade block, there would be quite a few teams with interest. There is no denying the talent that Engram possesses. That could net New York some assets in return.
Standing in at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, Engram has solid size to go along with his blazing speed and athleticism. If he could stay healthy, there is a good chance that he would be one of the most productive tight ends in the NFL.
New York will be an intriguing team to keep an eye on this offseason. With Daniel Jones now set in stone as their quarterback of the future and with the presence of Saquon Barkley, they need just a couple of pieces for their offense to take off. Trading Engram would set them back a bit, but it might be in the cards.
Expect to hear plenty of rumors about the Giants this offseason. They are done with playing poor to mediocre football and are going to make the moves they feel are necessary to get back into postseason contention.
