Should the New York Giants claim DE Takk McKinley off waivers?

After the New York Giants fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 8, they hit the waiver wire to claim wide receiver Dante Pettis, who was released by the San Francisco 49ers.

Pettis is a troubled player who simply lacked motivation and came to camp overweight in 2019. His opportunities have quickly taken a backseat, but the Giants and head coach Joe Judge will look to extract the potential they know is still available.

Surprisingly, another quality player has hit waivers, and this time it is a first-round talent and pass rusher Takkarist McKinley, formally of the Atlanta Falcons.
