BREAKING: New York Giants Acquire Star Tight End From Raiders

In a shocking update, the New York Giants are reportedly trading for Las Vegas Raiders' star tight end Darren Waller.

As of right now, the Giants are sending a third-round pick (No. 100) back to Las Vegas, the pick they received from the Kansas City Chiefs for wide receiver Kadarius Toney.

Waller still has four more years remaining on his contract with the Giants owing him at least $10.5 million in base salaries for each year left on his contract.

Waller is considered one of the top receiving tight ends in the league, having racked up over 1,000 receiving yards in each of the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

However, his availability has been limited over the past two years due to injuries, playing in only 20 games and recording 83 receptions for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns during that span.

Despite his injury history, the Giants are confident that the soon-to-be 31-year-old will make an immediate impact and significantly improve their offense. He's entering his eighth NFL season.

Last season, the Giants' tight ends combined for less than 600 receiving yards, so Waller's arrival is a significant upgrade, if he can stay healthy.

The Green Bay Packers reportedly offered the Raiders a second-round pick for Waller at the trade deadline this past season and Las Vegas turned them down.

The Raiders, on the other hand, will have to rely on their wide receivers for their passing game after losing Waller. They did sign Jakobi Meyers on Tuesday, but Waller's departure leaves a significant hole in their offense.
