"My reaction is always the case with trades, it's good for both parties," Shurmur said. "We feel good about what we got. We got a starting safety, we got a first-round pick and we got our third-round pick. We felt it was good for us and, because we were able to come to an agreement, Cleveland thought it was good for them.''
Shurmur echoed his boss' comments earlier in the week that the Giants do have a plan, even if it's hazy to the public.
"We've gone into this offseason knowing we have to build," he said. "I don't like the word 'rebuild.' We're building. Dave has a plan, we have a plan and we're just moving forward."
The coach scoffed at those who criticize the organization for struggling to project a tangible plan.
"I don't believe that's the case," he said. "We talk about everything we're doing and I do believe we have a plan.
"There's been a lot of changes. When Dave and I talk about this we want to bring in guys to help make our team better. Playing last year we were close in a lot of ways but we shined a bright light on the fact what's needed to get better and that's what we're trying to do.''
