JUET NOW: Giants send a brutal surprising move to resign former key star who left for rivals 2023 following his…

Details of Vikings and Giants trade offers to the Patriots for the No. 3 pick are revealed by an insider.

The New England Patriots selected a quarterback on Thursday night who may develop into their next major star, following the completion of the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Drake Maye, the third overall selection in the draft, will play for the Patriots under Jerod Mayo as a new chapter in the team’s history. In fact, many people had expected this would occur. However, there are rumors that other clubs that were considering Maye attempted to convince the Pats to part with their number three choice.

According to NFL insider Albert Breer, the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants made trade offers to the Patriots in hopes of landing the highly-touted quarterback. The Vikings offered the 11th and 23rd picks, as well as their 2025 first-round selection, with pick swaps favoring Minnesota as part of the proposal. The Giants, on the other hand, set their 2025 first-round pick on the table.

New England would not budge, however. Breer adds that “nothing came close” to garnering the Patriots’ interest. Additionally, the insider also stated that the offers only “emboldened New England to stay put” since Kevin O’Connell and Brian Daboll were the coaches taking a liking to Maye.\

The Vikings eventually secured two trades nonetheless. Agreeing to a deal with the New York Jets, Minnesota was able to move up to number 10 and select Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy. Furthermore, the team secured the 17th pick to draft Alabama EDGE rusher Dallas Turner.

It’ll be interesting to see how McCarthy fares with Justin Jefferson and the newly-signed Aaron Jones this coming season. Turner, conversely, will be joining a Vikings defense that’s recently acquired a number of new faces.

As for the Giants, they remained put at 6th and drafted LSU wideout Malik Nabers. While Nabers is definitely a promising talent, New York still has a quarterback issue to address, and it remains to be seen what they’ll do to find a franchise thrower.
