When it comes to rivals of the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the first teams that comes to mind is the New York Giants. The two teams play against each other twice every season, and they have a long history of battles behind them.

There's nothing wrong with getting a chuckle in at a rival's expense, right?

So, Eagles fans will get a good laugh out of the fact that the Giants were recently named as the least desirable trade destination in the entire NFL heading into the 2024 NFL season by Bleacher Report.

Things are pretty bleak in New York right now, and the outlook moving forward isn't great either due to a potential lack of stability at key areas in the organization. As a result, it's not really a place that a player would want to get traded to.

From Bleacher Report:

"The Giants offense became more promising with the addition of Malik Nabers, but it's going to take more than an electric rookie receiver to get things going. Darren Waller's retirement leaves this team down another weapon, and the G-Men are going to have a hard time replacing Saquon Barkley's production.

"There are a lot of concerns on defense too. Replacing Wink Martindale with Shane Bowen is a transition that could take time, and New York is still looking for answers in the secondary. . . Getting traded to the Giants would mean going to a team still searching for important answers on offense and defense without the guarantee of coaching stability or a big contract."

Ouch. That has to feel like salt in the wound for Giants fans after star running back Saquon Barkley defected from the Giants to the Eagles in free agency. Overall, it's been a pretty rough year for Giants fans, and it's probably not going to get too much better when the season starts in September.
