Hello Everyone, New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton made a return to the team’s voluntary organized team activities (OTA) amid an ongoing contract dispute.

Slayton, who is entering the final year of his current contract, had been absent for much of the offseason as he sought a new deal. However, photos released by the Giants on Tuesday captured Slayton actively participating in drills alongside his fellow receivers.

The reasons behind Slayton’s sudden return remain unclear. It’s possible that a resolution regarding his contract situation was reached with the team, or perhaps Slayton simply felt compelled to rejoin his teammates on the field.

Having Slayton back is significant for the Giants as he resumes his role as the team’s primary outside receiver opposite Malik Nabers. Slayton has been a consistent performer, leading the Giants in receiving yards in four of the last five seasons, including the 2023 campaign.

Financially, Slayton is set to earn $6.2 million with a salary-cap hit of $8.15 million for the 2024 season, according to Over The Cap.

As the Giants prepare for the upcoming season, Slayton’s return is expected to provide a welcome boost to their offensive capabilities, particularly for quarterback Daniel Jones and the team’s passing game.

Stay tuned as we continue to monitor developments surrounding Slayton’s contract negotiations and its impact on the Giants’ roster.
