Report: Giants trade for Bills' Basham

The Buffalo Bills are trading defensive end Boogie Basham to the New York Giants, a source told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The clubs will exchange late-round picks in the 2025 draft as part of the trade, Pelissero adds.

Basham has tallied 37 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, five tackles for loss, eight QB hits, and an interception in 23 career games.

The 6-foot-3, 281-pounder joins an edge rushing group that features Kayvon Thibodeaux, Azeez Ojulari, and potentially the recently added Isaiah Simmons. Thibodeaux, selected with the No. 5 pick in the 2022 draft, and Ojulari paired up for 9.5 sacks and nine TFLs in a combined 21 games last year.

Von Miller, Greg Rousseau, A.J. Epenesa, and Leonard Floyd are slated to be Buffalo’s primary pass-rushers.

The Bills selected the 25-year-old with the No. 61 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Wake Forest.
