The Giants send out a clear message after trafficking Cornerback Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints, and have tied the Detroit Lions to Damon Harrison in the past 24 hours.
This is now a rebuilding team focused on raising senior capital for experienced players with the goal of playing young talents in the second half of the season.
The two biggest winners in the trade couple, who knocked out a pair of veteran starters, are the undrafted rookie free agent Cornerback Grant Haley and second year defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson.

The Giants have three weeks left to decide if McIntosh is healthy enough and ready to take over the field before deciding whether to use him for season-independent IR due to an unknown illness that cost him the training camp. because of the preseason completes and the first seven games of the regular season.
Looking ahead to 2019 and beyond – and perhaps much sooner, according to McIntosh's health – the defensive line could become the Giants Hill, Tomlinson and McIntosh.
