Giants S Peppers tears ACL; off trade market … With the NFL trade deadline now less than a week away as we speak, one name that can be scratched off the list of veterans who could be potentially be moved prior to next Tuesday is Giants SS Jabrill Peppers after it was reported that he suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s win over Carolina. The Giants are 2-5 and likely would be happy to trade an impending free agent like Peppers whom they are unlikely to resign in the off-season even if the return wasn’t all that much; in fact there was some speculation that Arizona, the league’s last remaining unbeaten might have had some real interest in a player like Peppers. The Giants are also expected to take calls on TE Evan Engram who is in the same contractual situation as Peppers.
