Sources: Giants acquire Darren Waller in trade with Raiders

The New York Giants are obtaining tight end Darren Waller in a profession with the Las Vegas Raiders, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Giants will certainly send a third-round draft choice (No. 100 overall) to the Raiders for Waller, a 2020 Pro Bowler who will offer quarterback Daniel Jones with an established professional target in the passing video game.

Waller had back-to-back seasons of over 1,000 getting yards in 2019 as well as 2020 but has been plagued by several injuries over the past two seasons, showing up in simply 20 total video games over that period. Waller still ranks 3rd amongst NFL limited ends in catches (280) as well as receiving backyards (3,394) given that 2019, behind Travis Kelce as well as Mark Andrews.

The draft pick headed to Las Vegas was initially gotten by the Giants from the Chiefs this past October in the trade that sent out receiver Kadarius Toney to Kansas City.

That trade– coupled with Kenny Golladay’s inefficacy and also Sterling Shepard’s season-ending knee injury– left Jones with an unskilled getting corps for New york city’s unexpected postseason run and also resulted in widespread belief that Giants basic manager Joe Schoen would certainly look for passing-game upgrades this offseason.

Jones’ leading receiver last period was wide receiver Darius Slayton, that completed with 724 backyards. But Schoen located a cutting-edge means to boost the receiving corps with Tuesday’s trade, which perhaps was needed because of what is taken into consideration a weak team of wide receivers in totally free firm.

The Giants will certainly have Waller, 30, under contract for the next four seasons thanks to the three-year, $51 million expansion he authorized with the Raiders in September. New york city is anticipated to make use of a lot of two-tight-end formations including Waller as well as Daniel Bellinger, a fourth-round choice in 2015, at the position.

Waller most likely came to be expendable to Las vega after the Raiders consented to a three-year offer earlier Tuesday with freelance receiver Jakobi Meyers, who joins a receiving corps that currently consists of Davante Adams as well as Hunter Renfrow. Backup limited end Foster Moreau played well last season in area obligation replacing Waller, but he is set up to hit free company, leaving Las vega with Jesper Horsted and Cole Fotheringham as the just limited ends currently under agreement.

The Raiders are additionally thinking about authorizing seasoned free agent limited end Marcedes Lewis, according to Schefter.

Las Las vega supposedly turned down a second-round pick from the Packers for Waller finally year’s trade due date but now has 12 draft choices, including the Giants’ third-rounder, in a draft that is heavy with limited end leads.

The 6-foot-6 Waller appeared in just nine video games last period, hauling in 28 functions for 388 yards as well as 3 goals.

Waller just recently married Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum. The Aces are also possessed by Raiders proprietor Mark Davis.
