1. The Darius Slayton drama has come to an end - positive

Unlike with Waller, Giants fans no longer have to worry about veteran wideout Darius Slayton. Throughout the offseason, Slayton has been away from the team's voluntary program because he hasn't been happy with his contract. He's all set to play the 2024 campaign on the final year of his deal, which he doesn't like.

We're not sure what changed, but Slayton returned to East Rutherford and he's now back with the team on the field. Last offseason, Slayton put the pen to paper on a two-year deal worth $12.2 million. However, after leading the G-Men in receiving yards in four of the past five seasons, he wants to be taken care of with a new contract.

Who knows if that will happen or not, but him returning for OTAs is great to see. Slayton had some drop issues in the past, but he was quite reliable for Big Blue in 2023. Come this fall and winter, he could prove to be a great mentor for Nabers as well.
