QB Murray visits Giants; Redskins reportedly next

Share

But what is the point of Murray visiting the Giants?

Another wrinkle is the availability of Josh Rosen, now an Arizona Cardinals quarterback.

The Giants (picking sixth and 17th overall) and the Redskins (15th) are both expected to consider quarterbacks in the first round, with NY seeking a successor for Eli Manning and Washington looking for an answer with Alex Smith's future clouded by a serious leg injury sustained last season.

With the team and the league (and the networks that will broadcast the draft) having a clear interest in keeping Arizona's plans for the first pick under wraps, no one will be saying whether talks on a four-year deal are occurring. If he is going to go No. 1, then the Cardinals need to add weapons to make him successful.

The Detroit Lions have also been rumored to be looking to trade down, most likely with a team at the back of the quarterback pick-up line.

It's possible the Giants are just doing their homework, just in the one-in-a-thousand chance Murray falls to No. 6. Clearly, they wouldn't be wasting time bringing him in if they were totally out on him.

Or if you want to let your mind wander, perhaps the Giants are considering trying to make a trade up with Arizona?

If the Cardinals do the expected and draft Oklahoma's Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick, it still might not stop the Raiders from taking a quarterback with the No. 4 pick, two spots ahead of the Giants.

The report noted Murray is also scheduled to visit the Redskins sometime next week. He played for the 49ers-coached South team at the Senior Bowl.

It seems the Giants have their sights set on Murray.
