Giants urged to sign WR Will Fuller


The Houston Texans’ No. 15 Fuller throws a pass to land the Miami Dolphins in the third quarter at NRG Stadium on October 25, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

With the trade deadline approaching in less than two weeks, the New York Giants will have a choice. A team’s 5-1 start to the season could result in a one or two piece trade-off, but they only have $3 million left in cover spacewhich makes it less than ideal.

However, general manager Joe Schoen can look to seek deals as he tries to improve the squad for attack-minded head coach Brian Daboll and quarterback Daniel Jones.

The Giants don’t have receivers above 200 yards and had zilch from 2021 first-round receptions Tony Cadarius and $72 million Kenny Goladay.

Bleacher Report Joe Tansey It was suggested on Wednesday that the Giants take a look at a handful of free agents, including receiver Will Fuller who remains unsigned as week seven begins on Thursday.

“Will Fuller is the best healthy wide receiver on the free agent market. The Giants can look to Fuller to provide some veteran leadership and depth into the situation… He would have given the Giants a consistent #1 target and would allow Ritchie James, Darius Slayton and others to settle into supporting roles.”

Fuller History

Fuller, a former first-round pick, played only two games for the Miami Dolphins last season due to injuries.

Prior to 2021, Fuller had five seasons produced in Houston, with an average of 41 catches, 622 yards, and four touchdowns for every season. This led him to sign a one-year deal worth $10.6 million in 2021 with Dolphins in Spotrac.

But his recent injury history affected his value in free agency. The 28-year-old has played less than 12 games in each season since 2017. Last year, he played in only two games before a broken thumb ended his season.

Fuller demonstrated NFL ability recently in 2020 when he finished his career in receptions (53), yards (879), and touchdowns (8) with Houston.

Despite injury concerns, there is a positive trend for any team to add Fuller. He can provoke an attack by running him on the road in tandem with his elite speed, supporting this with his career average of 14.7 yards per catch.

Given that Fuller has remained unsigned, it is likely that any team that signs him will hand out a one-year deal.

WR Giants Dukhan

Reported on Sep 20 by Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson That Daboll was in contact with large-scale receivers of customers through FaceTime.

Then, the world of giants was in a frenzy when CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson It was reported on October 3 that Odell Beckham Jr., the free agent wide receiver, was at the Giants team facility.

After Anderson’s report, a person familiar with the visit confirmed Matt Lombardo, a heavy sports fanatic in the NFL That Beckham’s appearance was not an official visit arranged by the team, and the star did not meet widely with head coach Brian Dabol or general manager Joe Schoen.

The name Beckham will always come to mind when trying to fix Giants receiver issues. However, he won’t be ready until the second half of the season. The Pro Bowl receiver was also interested in other competing teams being in better positions.

However, Daboll was asked about rumors linking Beckham to the giants and neither confirmed nor denied the interest in the free receiver.

“We always try to improve our roster in any way we can,” Daboll said on October 7, via. Pat Leonard From the New York Daily News.
