We know that Arizona's Karlos Dansby will probably hit the open market and automatically become a possible solution to replacing just-cut veteran middle linebacker Antonio Pierce. We also know that Jonathan Goff and Chase Blackburn are possibilites, as is a high-round draft pick.
What we haven't explored is a trade scenario. With a diluted free agent pool expected for March 5, it's anticipated that more teams will go the trade route this year than at any time in recent memory.
So I'm asking you, of all the middle linebackers who are not free agents, who would you like to see in a Giants' uniform next season? And what would you be willing to give up for him? Is having a veteran MLB worth shipping off a No. 1, or is something like a 2 and a 5 more appropriate? Would you give up a veteran from another position for him?
Talk to me, people!
