The New York Giants turned heads in 2022, but it’s time to start looking to the future for this team. With general manager Joe Schoen building the roster, a solid core has been put in place, on both sides of the ball. Heading into the offseason, there are several areas of the offense that must be addressed, including wide receiver.

In order to address the position, the front office could draft a pass-catcher in the first round. Or, they could make a trade. If this is the path they choose, there should be one player at the top of their list: Tee Higgins of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Per a report, the Bengals could look to trade Higgins this offseason because of contract issues. If Higgins is available, Schoen needs to pick up the phone and call Cincy. Here’s why:

Report: Bengals WR Tee Higgins “could be traded” for a top draft pick if the team can’t reach an extension with him and the money he’s asking for is “outrageous”, per @TheAtlantic

3. Tee Higgins would make an immediate impact

Since being drafted in 2020, Higgins has looked like a star. With his addition, the Giants would be getting a pass-catcher who can stretch the field. This has been something that the offense has been missing for some time now, and he’d be able to really be a stud working with offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

While with the Bengals, Higgins has regularly proved to be a dynamic playmaker, specifically down the field. Over 46 career regular season games, he has recorded 215 receptions for 3,028 passing yards and 19 touchdowns. Throw up the pigskin and he’ll come down with it:

Outside of the regular season, Higgins has also found success in the playoffs. Through seven total playoff games, he has recorded 31 receptions for 457 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns.

The Giants have assembled a group of talented pass-catchers, but there is a lack of consistent success. That hasn’t been the case with Higgins. With his arrival, this offense could reach a new level.
