The New York Giants are searching large receiver Darius Slayton on the buying and selling block, in accordance to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

Former first round draft decide Kadarius Toney is not the only New York Giants large receiver on the investing block.

Slayton, a fifth-round draft selection by the Giants in 2019, obtained a proven general performance escalator, which bumped his wage up from $920,000 to $2.5 million in 2022. That is for the reason that Slayton played in over 35 per cent of the Giants’ offensive snaps throughout his to start with a few seasons in the NFL.

Initial-calendar year typical supervisor Joe Schoen is determined to distinct extra salary cap room, and Slayton could be looked at as expendable, offered his diminished role and effect a year ago.

“The problem with a trade is other groups can get their very own version of Slayton for a lot much less expensive in the draft,” Duggan wrote. “Don’t be stunned if Slayton doesn’t make the final roster if the Giants aren’t ready to discover a trade husband or wife and their cap scenario remains limited.”

Slayton burst onto the scene for the duration of his rookie marketing campaign with 48 receptions for 740 yards and eight touchdowns. Even though he was able to improve his receptions (50) and yards (751) totals in calendar year two, the 25-calendar year-outdated scored just a few touchdowns in 2020. And very last year, Slayton’s manufacturing slipped, recording 25 catches for 339 yards and two touchdowns throughout 13 video games. The Auburn Tigers product has dedicated 12 drops in his past 29 games.

If Toney sticks all-around, Slayton would project as the fourth large receiver on the Giants’ offense, which features Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard, much too. This could guide to Schoen and the Giants slicing ties with Slayton no matter of whether or not they are ready to trade him.

Nonetheless, Bobby Skinner of Jomboy Media’s Talkin’ Giants discovered that Toney arrived in New York/New Jersey on Saturday and was in the developing on Monday for voluntary exercises.

This was later confirmed by Duggan, who additional: “Nothing like some trade rumors to get a participant to hop on a flight…”

As Ralph Vacchiano of SNY went on to report, the Giants weren’t actively purchasing Toney and continue to continue being significant on his likely. But the group is however discouraged about some of the 23-12 months-old’s off the discipline antics.
