Kevin Zeitler an instant upgrade to Giants' weak offensive line

Gettleman sent linebacker Olivier Vernon and a fourth-round pick (No. 132 overall) to the Browns for guard Kevin Zeitler and a fifth-round pick (No. 155 overall). One more year of that would've been torture, so moving him was the right move. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 6-ranked guard a year ago, as he earned the highest pass blocking grade of any offensive lineman in the league. He has 51 sacks in seven seasons, including seven past year when he was named a Pro Bowler for NY. Thus, seeing a player-for-player trade - even if draft picks are also involved - is a refreshing addition to the early 2019 offseason. The trade was also reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter. With the addition of Zeitler, the trade will save the Giants $1.5 million against the cap. He was set to make $15.5 million in each of the two remaining years on his contract.

Zeitler just completed his second season with the Browns, who signed him to a five-year, $60 million deal as a free agent in 2017 after five seasons with Cincinnati. He didn't miss a game during his first five years in the league.

The Giants struggled mightily to protect Eli Manning last season, allowing 47 sacks.

Christopher Watts said he later told his attorneys the truth and that he had killed his daughters as well as Shanann Watts. A site allowing people to send money to inmates lists Watts under the Wisconsin Department of Corrections.

A first-round pick by the Bengals in 2012, Zeitler was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2016. During an interview with 92.3 the Fan in Cleveland, NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabawala said the Browns had offered multiple players to the Giants in hopes of landing Beckham.

Receiver Danny Amendola was released by Miami, creating $6 million salary cap space for the Dolphins.
