The New York Giants accepted the conditions with former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell on Thursday, and later in the day they figured out a way to keep one of their own in the fold. By NFL Media, the Giants agreed to terms with wide receiver Darius Slayton on a new contract. The case is apparently for two years, has a base value of $12 million and a maximum value of $16.5 million.
Slayton caught 46 passes for 724 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games played in 2022. He was originally a fifth-round pick by the Giants in 2019 against Auburn. Slayton burst onto the NFL scene with 740 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season, then recorded 751 yards and three scores the second year.
One of Joe Schoen’s goals this offseason has been to bolster Daniel Jones’ wide receiving body. At the same time, it is also important to retain some key elements. Slayton’s 724 receiving yards led the Giants last season.
Along with adding Campbell, the Giants also tagged former Las Vegas Raiders star tight end Darren Waller in a shop it only required a third-round pick – originally belonging to the Kansas City Chiefs. This move could end up being considered one of the best of the entire offseason.
Brian Daboll’s offense is taking shape. Jones signed a four-year, $160 million extension, Saquon Barkley was given the franchise tag, and Matt Breida signed a one-year extension.
