Around the league FA moves

If I’m Marty I’m on the phone with Cleveland right now asking for Ogbah.

Apparently he is being used as a bargaining chip.  This was before the Vernon trade.

https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/1857/kevin-zeitler

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports the Browns offered RG Kevin Zeitler, DE Emmanuel Ogbah, and one other player to the Giants for Odell Beckham.

The Giants obviously didn't accept the offer and allegedly "laughed at" it. It's going to take a whole heck of a lot more than that to acquire one of the three best receivers in the sport who is firmly in his prime. The Giants have reportedly not completely ignored phone calls for OBJ and would be willing to move him for the right price. Odds are a package would have to include multiple high picks, possibly a pair of first-rounders. Zeitler is an elite guard but is rumored to be on the trade block in Cleveland. Ogbah is a good-not-great edge presence. This offer really isn't even close, but it at least points to the Browns being interested in acquiring Beckham.

Id actually say this is a good move for the Giants. 

They got a dam good OG to pair with Hernandez in the middle while opening up a few mil in cap space 

Vernon hasnt been that great in the Giants 3-4 defense at OLB

Oh, I agree...  good deal.  Zeitler is great.  But, they are getting awfully lopsided at this point.

And to clarify, i was speaking more to the big picture of what he's doing - Letting Collins walk, OBJ rumors, and dealing Vernon.

We got to jump all over this.  He was solid a year or two ago, not sure what happened the last year or so, but he should come cheap.

Exactly..with the market as is we can scratch safety off the list at a good price

A lot of quality veterans being made available. No reason to not get better without breaking the bank or giving up comp picks. But, there’s also the issue of these teams with all that cap room to mess things up.

Gipson fits our approach of getting younger. He’s also an upgrade over what we had on the field last year. This would make a great pairing with Reid and push our safety need down the road. I never want to see Gaulden on the field.

That’s almost enough for half the teams in the league plus there’s the draft. No excuse why we shouldn’t end up with a new FS.

Everyone looks to be making moves to gear up for free agency while we pick up $5M options for Torrey fugin Smith. Sigh... life of a Panthers fan.

Some of those guys are pure strong safeties, but yes, point taken. It also looks like we were pretty dumb to give Reid that money. He's not terrible at what he does, but what he does is at the lowest end of the safety value range and safeties of his caliber have been signing for peanuts in recent years.
