Folks, ever since Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News dropped the bombshell report that the Giants are shopping Kadarius Toney, fans are curious as to what the return will be for him. While I don’t have a crystal ball and it’s tough for me to see how teams value him, I can say that I highly doubt that the Giants will get a first round pick for him.
So what can they get for him? Dan Duggan of The Athletic insinuated that the Giants could get a mid-round pick for Toney.
So a mid-round pick can be anywhere from a second round pick to a fifth round pick in my book. Call me insane, but I’d much rather hold onto Kadarius Toney if we were selling him for anything less than a top 75 pick.
So who’s interested in Kadarius Toney’s services? Here are the top five teams who can bring him in.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs lost Tyreek Hill this offseason when they couldn’t make him the highest paid wide receiver in NFL history. So can I interest the Chiefs in a gently used Kadarius Toney for the low, low price of the 50th or 62nd pick in the draft? Depending on how they view the wide receivers in this year’s class, this could be a home run for them.
Do we wanna get really dangerous with Kansas City? How about we toss James Bradberry in there and go for one of their late first round picks. That could be enticing for the Giants.
2. New York Jets
It’s no secret that the Jets have been looking to add a receiver to their team for the entire offseason. Kadarius Toney is a young weapon that has a lot of potential and he wouldn’t even have to switch cities. The Jets have four picks in the top 38 and I’d highly doubt that they’d be willing to part ways with them for Toney. They do have the 69th pick in the draft and that could be enough to pry Toney away from their cross-town rivals.
3. Green Bay Packers
The Packers also have major holes at wide receiver after losing Davante Adams to the Raiders this offseason. Kadarius Toney could come in there and compete for a major share of the snaps from day one. Green Bay also has the 53rd and the 59th picks in the draft this year that they can use to lure Toney in.
4. New England Patriots
The Patriots are always interested in bringing in former Giants receivers it feels like though they never actually pull the trigger. Could this time be different? Well if you consider the fact that Joe Judge, who drafted Toney, is back on the Patriots staff as an offensive assistant then maybe so. The Patriots have picks 54 and 85 that they could use in a potential trade.
5. Tennessee Titans
The Titans could be heading towards some massive receiver trouble if they don’t agree to a new contract with AJ Brown. One way that they could mitigate that risk is by trading for Kadarius Toney from the Giants. The only issue for the Titans is that they don’t have a second round pick this year. I highly doubt they’d be willing to part with pick 26 for Kadarius Toney and they don’t pick again after that until pick 90.
