    Looks like it is just a rumor/in the works at this point?

    The Broncos apparently will trade Riley Dixon after all.

    Denver began shopping Dixon after signing Marquette King in free agency. The Broncos apparently have found a trade partner in the Giants.

    The Giants are nearing the completion of a trade for Dixon, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. They have searched for a veteran punter since releasing Brad Wing in March.

    Dixon has stayed away from the team’s offseason workouts as the Broncos tried to find him a new home. Denver made him a seventh-round pick in 2016.

    Dixon, 24, averaged 45.6 yards per punt last season with a 40.2-yard net. He had 23 punts downed inside the 20, three touchbacks and allowed one touchdown return.

    In his rookie season of 2016, Dixon averaged 45.7 yards per punt with a 41.3-yard net. He had 28 punts downed inside the 20 and six touchbacks

    It's being reported as a conditional 7th round pick. It may still not be finalized, but it sounds like it's a mostly done deal.

    It needs to be finalized. Nothing against Dixon but we don’t need to carry two punters. I would take a 7th over a bench punter.

    Yup:

    The Broncos traded Dixon to the Giants in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation.

    A potential pick is better than nothing, I thought he'd be straight up cut.

    The $4 million in cap room is more important than a conditional 7th round pick which could end up being nothing.

    Wish Dixon well, but once they signed King this was a no brainer.
