How Would Giants Offense Change if Darren Waller Retires?


One of the biggest storylines surrounding the New York Giants this offseason is the uncertainty of whether or not tight end Darren Waller, whom the Giants acquired via trade with the Las Vegas Raiders for a third-round pick before the 2023 season, will retire.


Waller dealt with injuries for the 2021 and 2022 seasons, but prior to that, he had back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons to establish himself as one of the most dangerous pass-catching tight ends in the NFL.


The decision to trade for him and the compensation given up made the trade a low-risk, high-reward move. The Giants used the draft pick acquired from the KAnas City Chiefs in the Kadarius Toney to the Chiefs, essentially making the trade Waller for Toney, the latter of whom had no interest in being a Giant.


However, with Waller all but certain to retire, there will be questions about how the team plans to re-align the offense to compensate for the loss.


To some, Waller retiring might not seem like a loss given the disappointing production he delivered for the Giants in his thus far only season, so in looking at how the team could potentially move on from him, we’re taking into consideration what a healthy Waller brought to the table in both skills, ability, and potential production if healthy.
