With the Giants, it’s become easy to recognize the change of seasons.
Not the weather adjusting from summer to autumn to winter. Not the intensity shifting from preseason to regular season to postseason.
For them, the delineation on their calendar that takes place around this time each year is a more profound shift. The NFL’s trading deadline is approaching, and that means the organization takes a look at where it is and where it wants to be going.
It’s the annual transition from this NFL season to next NFL season.
