Trade Idea No. 3

Giants get: G Greg Van Roten, fourth-round pick

Jets get: TE Evan Engram, G Will Hernandez, 2022 seventh-round pick

Why: The Jets are revamping their offensive line and clearly Chris Herndon is not the answer at tight end. Since Joe Douglas is flush with draft capital, dumping a veteran like Van Roten onto the Giants while adding young talent at both guard and tight end might be an intriguing proposition. Whoever the Jets QB is in 2021 should have a better safety valve than Herndon, even if Engram isn’t exactly always the most reliable either. The Giants coaching staff has clearly soured on Hernandez, and Van Roten is a veteran that would be a better option, even if only for depth. Dave Gettleman once signed Van Roten as a free agent when he was GM of the Panthers in 2017

Jets get two starters for a guy they are looking to replace? who wouldn't do this

Calling Hernandez a starter is a stretch.


Hernandez’s Pro Football Focus overall rating from last season has dropped 5.8 points to 60, his pass protection is slightly improved but his run-blocking grade has cratered from 60 to 45.9.

Final grades - both are below-JAG level but GVR was better than Hernandez.  I have no interest in swapping into a downgrade at OG.
