Gettleman on Giants: ‘You can win while you build a roster’

The New York Giants are remaking their roster as we speak. The Giants sent star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and linebacker Olivier Vernon to the Cleveland Browns for safety Jabrill Peppers, guard Kevin Zeitler and two draft choices(2019 1st, 3rd round picks).

The deal is contingent on the players passing physicals with their new teams, which are expected to be completed no later than Monday.

The Giants have lost a lot of talent off their roster in the last few days. In addition to trading Vernon and Beckham to Cleveland, the Giants also lost Pro-Bowl safety Landon Collins, who signed with the Washington Redskins. At this point, it seems the Giants are in rebuild mode.

However, according to their GM Dave Gettleman, the Giants can build a quality roster and win at the same time.

“You can win while you build a roster,” Gettleman said. “We do have a plan, and this is a part of it.”

It’s hard to decipher what the Giants’ plan is moving forward. They still need a QB because the 38-year-old Eli Manning is near the end of his career. The Giants will probably grab a QB in the draft(Giants have 6th overall pick), which could be Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins. In the NFL, it’s all about getting a QB, and if the Giants can grab a QB in the draft that they like, then all will be better in New York. However, as of now, Giants fans are still a little miffed about the direction of this team.
