The New York Giants have made a major trade with the Las Vegas Raiders, acquiring tight end Darren Waller. The news was announced on Tuesday, sparking excitement among Giants fans.
Waller, who played for the Baltimore Ravens before joining the Raiders, is considered one of the best tight ends in the NFL. This season, he has racked up 394 yards and 3 touchdowns, proving to be a valuable asset for the Raiders.
In exchange for Waller, the Raiders received a package of picks and players. The Giants are said to have given up a second-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft, as well as a player to be named later.
The move is seen as a major boost for the Giants, who have struggled on offense this season. With Waller, they now have another weapon in their arsenal, which could help them turn their season around.
Giants head coach Joe Judge spoke to reporters about the trade, saying that he believes Waller will be a great addition to the team. “He’s a dynamic player who can create mismatches on the field,” Judge said. “We’re excited to have him on board.”
The trade is also being seen as a sign that the Giants are serious about making a postseason run this year. With Waller in the mix, they now have the potential to be a serious contender in the NFC.
Fans are already buzzing about Waller’s debut with the Giants, which is expected to happen in the next few weeks. It remains to be seen how he’ll fit into the team’s offense, but one thing is for sure: expectations are high.
