Raanan says other teams have inquired with the Giants about Engram. League sources believe Engram could fetch a third or fourth-round pick in a trade.
However, the Giants view Engram as one of their best young players and their most talented receiving threat on offense right now.
Trading him would leave New York with even fewer weapons as they look to develop their young quarterback.
Engram, 26, is a former first-round pick by the Giants in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Mississippi. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $10,718,304 rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of $1,926,587 for 2020.
Engram finished last season on the season-ending injured reserve due to a Lisfranc injury. The Giants exercised his fifth-year option for the 2021 season for about $6 million.
In 2020, Engram has appeared in seven games for the Giants and recorded 26 receptions for 223 yards receiving (8.6 YPC) and no touchdowns. He’s carried the ball four times for 12 yards and a touchdown.
We’ll have more on Engram as the news is available.
