According to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the New York Giants have made a significant addition to their roster by acquiring tight end Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders. In exchange for Waller, the Giants have sent their No. 100 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, which they acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs for wide receiver Kadarius Toney.

Waller, who is 30 years old, has spent the past five seasons with the Raiders after starting his NFL career with the Baltimore Ravens, who selected him in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech. Despite an injury-riddled past two seasons, Waller had a Pro Bowl campaign in 2020, demonstrating his potential as a formidable weapon on the field.

During the 2022 season, Waller caught 28 passes for 388 yards and three touchdowns, showcasing his versatility as a pass-catching tight end. The Landover, MD native is entering the final year of his three-year, $51 million contract, making him a valuable asset for the Giants.

The addition of Waller to the Giants' roster provides quarterback Daniel Jones with another weapon to utilize in the passing game. With Waller's proven ability to make big plays and his versatility as a receiver, the Giants' offense will undoubtedly benefit from his presence on the field.


Overall, the acquisition of Darren Waller is a significant move for the New York Giants, as it adds depth and talent to their tight end position, and provides Daniel Jones with an additional weapon to work with in the upcoming season. As Waller continues to recover from his injuries, the Giants will likely look to him as a key contributor to their offensive success in the future.
