The Giants could use some reinforcements before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. NFL trade deadline, but does coach Brian Daboll think the team will be active?
“I’m pretty tired right now, so I’m not going to be too active. I’m not going to be running or jogging or anything like that,” Daboll joked on Monday, about 10 hours after the Giants returned home from Sunday’s loss in Seattle.
“Long flight,” he said. “I don’t know, we’ll see. We’ll see. Those are conversations that I’ll have with Joe [Schoen] and take each of them as they come.”
General manager Schoen last week traded wide receiver Kadarius Toney to Kansas City for a 2023 third-round compensatory pick and a 2023 sixth-round pick.
Daboll said he and Schoen “are in constant communication. Lockstep on a lot of things. We talk about pretty much everything there is to talk about in an organization. That’s just how we approach it. That’s really no different to game management or free agency or draft. There’s always communication.”
Daboll said he is “hopeful” that wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) will return after the bye week on Nov. 13 when the Giants host Houston.
“We’ll see,” Daboll said. “It’s probably too early right now to give you an answer on that. Hopeful, but too early.”
What are the players planning to do during their time off? Daniel Jones said he wasn’t sure, but tackle Andrew Thomas plans to go home to Atlanta, and not just to recharge the batteries.
He’s also going for the wings.
“My go-to is American Deli,” he said. “It’s a wings spot in Atlanta. Gotta have it.”
But don’t worry, Giants coaches: Thomas said he also plans to make sure “I’m getting good sleep and trying to eat as good as possible. You’ve got to get a little bit of good food [since] I’m going back home.”
