The New York Giants are reportedly shopping and open to dealing Alec Ogletree, Janoris Jenkins, and possibly Nate Solder.
On Monday, the New York Giants traded a 2020 third-round pick and a 2021 fifth-round pick for New York Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams. The move was to upgrade a young defensive line who’s been relatively quiet through the team’s first eight games.
However, Big Blue may not be done with trades prior to Tuesday’s deadline.
According to Ian Rapoport of nfl.com, the Giants are shopping and are open to moving Alec Ogletree, Janoris Jenkins and possibly Nate Solder. The latter has previously been in trade talks with the Cleveland Browns.
With #Jets DL Leonard Williams headed to the #Giants, both teams are hoping for more. NYJ continues to shop WR Robby Anderson, while NYG has shopped and is open to dealing Janoris Jenkins, Alec Ogletree and maybe Nate Solder.

Ogletree was originally traded for prior to the 2018 season. He’s been the team’s starting inside linebacker since but hasn’t performed up to his overall expectations.
The Giants signed Jenkins to a five-year, $62.5 million deal before the 2016 season. He’s their top cornerback, but may not be in the future plans. Additionally, his contract is becoming too expensive for what he’s done on the field.
Solder also has a large contract that’s turning out to be too much. The Giants gave him a four-year, $62 million deal in March of 2018, making him the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league at the time.
Up to this point, he hasn’t seemed like someone who could be the answer at the left tackle position for this ballclub.
The deadline lands on Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. Therefore, numerous moves could be made within this organization in the next 24 hours.
