Giants’ Jalin Hyatt makes bold ‘playoff’ declaration for 2024 season

Will the Giants make the playoffs this season?

Not many have high expectations for the New York Giants in the 2024 season, but that does not apply to those inside the building, specifically second-year wide receiver Jalin Hyatt, who said he believes the roster can make the playoffs when asked about whether or not he sets high goals for himself and the team.



“Oh yeah, always man, always. You know, new year, new opportunities, new goals,” Jalin Hyatt said, via SNY Giants. “For me, I always set high expectations, and just looking at our team, looking what we got. We have a good chance to do whatever we want to do. And for goals, I just want as a team goal, we have a playoff team. That’s what we want to do. That’s our focus and we’re gonna get there.”


To many, this is a lofty goal. ESPN’s Mike Clay ranked the Giants’ roster as the least talented in the NFL, despite bringing in pass rusher Brian Burns and drafting Malik Nabers to offset the departures of Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney. The Giants are one year separated from a surprising trip to the playoffs in 2022, and Hyatt clearly expects the team to get back in 2024.



It is not surprising to see Hyatt set a lofty goal and speak with confidence. He had the goal of being the offensive rookie of the year in 2023. That did not end up happening, but New York still hopes that the speedy second-year receiver can be a good piece in the offense.


Due to the departure of Saquon Barkley, the Giants are going to have to rely on other options offensively. Hyatt is one of them, but first-round pick Malik Nabers is the top name to watch, and him hitting the ground running is a recipe for the Giants to surprise and prove to Hyatt’s playoff declaration right.
