Following a Week 5 loss, the New York Giants are one of the few winless teams remaining, and there are few glimmers of hope for this season. As the NFL trade deadline approaches, we could see the Giants send a few players out the door in favor of some draft picks, as they look to continue this franchise's overhaul.

With that in mind, these are three Giants who could be traded before the deadline.

1. Logan Ryan, CB/S

Typically a cornerback, the Giants signed Logan Ryan late and have been playing him at safety, Since he is on an expiring contract, the Giants could look to move him and get something in return, if they feel he will not re-sign. Given his success at cornerback and now also safety, he has the versatility to garner plenty of attention. Additionally, highly-touted second-round pick Xavier McKinney is expected to make his debut late in the season, which could lessen Ryan's role at safety, and ultimately his usefulness in the Giants secondary.

2. Golden Tate, WR

Golden Tate is on the wrong side of 30, but he is proving he can still play, grabbing at least four receptions in every game. His contract expires after the 2022 season, but Tate is also one of the team's highest-paid players in terms of average salary per year. If the Giants can find a team to take his contract, they may be willing to accept a late draft pick for him, especially with the continued emergence of second-year wideout Darius Slayton.

3. Evan Engram, TE

Evan Engram has mostly played really well for the Giants when he's on the field since they used a first-round pick on him in the 2017 draft. However, he has spent a lot of time not on the field. The Giants will have a decision to make about Engram's long-term future with the team soon, and if New York doesn't view him as a part of their plans moving forward, it could choose to trade the uber-athletic tight end while his value is still there, especially if a great offer comes in. Engram's talent isn't the question, but availability is the best ability and he simply hasn't proven to be consistent there during his time with the Giants.
