This is surely something NY Giants fans are going to love seeing. While not everyone is ready to board the Darren Waller hype train just yet, there's simply no arguing that the veteran tight end is going to open up the playbook for offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

Just ask former signal-caller and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky about that. This week, Orlovsky couldn't hold his excitement on air about the potential Waller has playing in this new system.

Matter of fact, Orlovsky went as far as comparing Waller and the Giants to what the Chiefs have been able to do so well with Travis Kelce. Okay, fire us up over here, Dan:

ESPN's Dan Orlovsky is all in on the Giants with Darren Waller

In that clip above, you can see just how excited Orlovsky is for Waller to ball out for the Giants. Not only that, though, but Orlovsky also knows just how much of a benefit Waller is going to be for the other NY pass-catchers.

His presence alone on the field is going to create space for speedsters Jalin Hyatt, Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and others. As we've said time and time again, Waller's impact really is going to come down to how healthy he can stay this fall and winter.

The big-bodied TE has missed 17 games over the past two seasons. It's been a major bummer to see for him, as when he's healthy, Waller is inarguably one of the best TEs in the game. The hope from everyone in East Rutherford is that he can stay close to 100 percent all season long.

The excitement surrounding Waller and the new-look offense for the Giants can't be measured. It should have plenty of Cowboys fans nervous for when Week 1 rolls around. There's no doubt in our minds that Waller will be a beast for Big Blue in 2023 and it's great to see someone like Orlovsky has the same thing on his mind.
