The Arizona Cardinals have traded Isaiah Simmons to the New York Giants for a 2024 seventh-round pick, the teams announced on Thursday. Simmons was the eighth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he has struggled to find a consistent role in Arizona's defense. The Giants are hoping that he can develop into a more versatile player in their scheme.
Simmons is a versatile player who can play multiple positions on defense. He was used primarily as an off-ball linebacker in his first three seasons with the Cardinals, but he also saw time at safety and slot corner. The Giants are planning to use him as a safety, where they believe he can use his athleticism and range to make plays in the passing game.
The trade is a low-risk move for the Giants. They are only giving up a seventh-round pick for Simmons, who still has a lot of potential. If he can develop into a starting safety, it will be a steal for the Giants.
The trade of Isaiah Simmons is a sign that the Cardinals are ready to move on from a player who has not lived up to expectations. The Giants are hoping that he can find a new home and reach his full potential.
