NFL Rumors: New York Giants Getting Trade Calls About Wide Receiver

The New York Giants may make yet another change to their receiving corps. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team is fielding inquiries on wide receiver Darius Slayton:
Slayton burst onto the scene as a surprisingly productive rookie coming out of the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, hauling in 48 catches for 740 yards and 8 touchdowns. However, his efficiency has persistently dropped since that startling debut, from 8.8 yards per target in his first year, to 7.8 in his second, to finally a mere 5.8 last season.

Entering a contract year, Slayton makes sense as a low-cost gamble for teams trying to improve their depth at the wide receiver position. Given his declining production in the Giants system and his lack of familiarity with new head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen, there's reason to believe a change of scenery could benefit the receiver. But considering the team's recent turnover at the wide receiver and tight end position, the Giants may simply need to keep every capable body they can get their hands on.
