  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Likely to remain starter

    Slayton (thumb) is expected to open the season as a starting wideout opposite rookie first-round pick Malik Nabers, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Slayton refused to report to voluntary offseason workouts, as he's entering the final season of a two-year contract and is seeking an extension. The Giants, however, haven't budged, and the team used the sixth overall pick in last week's draft to take Nabers after using a third-round pick on Jalin Hyatt in 2023. While Slayton is the favorite to open the summer as a starter on the outside, the team likely hopes Hyatt can push the veteran for snaps and targets in his second season. Nabers is the most talented receiver of the lot and could quickly prove to be the No. 1 option in the passing game.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Seeking new deal

    Slayton (thumb) hasn't reported to the Giants' voluntary workouts while he seeks a contract extension, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Slayton, who led the team with 770 receiving yards in 17 games in 2023, has attended the Giants' voluntary offseason program in the past. The 27-year-old wideout is in line to earn $6.2 million in the final year of his contract in 2024, but Slayton is evidently looking to amend those terms. At this stage, Slayton -- who is recovering from an offseason procedure on his right thumb -- is poised to retain a key role in a Giants wideout corps that currently includes Wan'Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Undergoes thumb surgery

    Slayton said Thursday that he had surgery on his right thumb after the conclusion of the regular season but should be ready to play "by the time it matters," Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

    Slayton posted to his personal X account Jan. 10 implying that he dealt with a right hand injury throughout the campaign, and it appears that his thumb was the source of the issue. Despite the injury, the fifth-year wideout played in every game for the Giants this season, leading the club with 79 targets (of which he caught 60) and 770 receiving yards while hauling in four touchdowns. If his thumb heals as expected, and depending on what changes the Giants make in the offseason, Slayton could head into the 2024 campaign as the team's No. 1 wideout.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Hauls in TD against Philly

    Slayton caught five of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Eagles.

    The wideout tied Wan'Dale Robinson and Darren Waller for the team lead with five grabs each, but Slayton was the only Giants receiver to get into the end zone, connecting with Tyrod Taylor on a 19-yard score late in the second quarter. Slayton tied his career high with 50 catches in 2023 and set a new personal best with 770 receiving yards, but the Giants could do a lot of housecleaning on the roster in the offseason, and it's not clear if the 26-year-old is part of their future plans.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Catches 80-yard TD in loss

    Slayton caught four of six targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-25 loss to the Rams.

    Slayton got free for his second long touchdown reception in the last two games, and this one was even longer than his 69-yard score against the Eagles in Week 16. The big-play threat had only one touchdown all season prior to this hot stretch, but Slayton will have a nice opportunity to keep the late-season surge going in Week 18 when the Giants face the struggling Eagles defense again.
