New York Giants lost the Thursday night football game badly to the Patriots and the next two games will decide their fate in the 2019 NFL season. The deadline for the NFL trade deals is October 29 and the Giants will most likely be the sellers at that point.
The Giants would possibly look to rebuild a new roster around their young quarterback Daniel Jones and it means general manager Dave Gettleman would move out several players to make space in the team and acquire new assets. As per the rumors, the Giants could trade out Janoris Jenkins, Golden Tate, and Rhett Ellison before the October 29 deadline.
Janoris Jenkins, CB – Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs are in dire need of a new cornerback given they lost their last two games due to poor defense. Bashaud Breeland caused a 53-yard pass interference penalty and the Chiefs are easily giving out 237 passing yards per game.
We can all kiss Janoris Jenkins goodbye after this season.#giantschat

The Giants have Corey Ballentine who impressed everyone in the training camp and Sam Beal is also returning from that makes Janoris Jenkins open for trade. The Chiefs are trying to get Jalen Ramsey but he is way out of their league, which makes Jenkins as their consolation cornerback.
Golden Tate, WR – 49ers
San Francisco 49ers are the only team that has still not lost a game in the NFC division and they would like to continue the same. The 49ers would like to provide another weapon their opening quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Golden Tate could be an easy choice in the NFL trade deadline deals.

Tate won’t cost much to the 49ers because his guaranteed money in 2020 was voided due to his suspension for 4 games for using enhancing drugs. The San Francisco receivers have only made 36 catches for 481 yards and three touchdowns and Tate could easily get the number 3 spot after Marquise Goodwin and Deebo Samuel.
Rhett Ellison, TE – Patriots
Rhett Ellison has only one year left in the New York Giants team but they would still trade him out to free up some cap space. Evan Engram and Garrett Dickerson could do the job at tight end position and trading Ellison would give Giants an additional $6.25 million in cap space with a $1.25 million dead money for the next NFL season.
The amount I've thought about Rhett Ellison vs Vernon Davis is sickening

The New England Patriots are already looking for a new tight end after releasing Benjamin Watson last week. Ellison caught 10 catches for 76 yards and even made three receptions for 30 yards against the Patriots, which is enough to prove his worth.
