8. Darren Waller will look to silence his haters
The expectations are high for new Giants tight end Darren Waller. After back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020, Waller has missed 17 games over the past two seasons due to various injuries. Depite that, Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka are hopeful he can stay healthy throughout the upcoming campaign.
When healthy, Waller is easily one of the best TEs in the game and fans are staying optimistic that he can return to his Pro Bowl form for the Giants. This team is still without a true WR1 for the offense and while Waller is a TE, he still has the ability to be a superstar pass-catcher for Danny Dimes and Co. starting Week 1 vs. Dallas.
The Giants used a third-round pick to trade for Waller, which they got as part of the Kadarius Toney deal with the Chiefs. Waller is already being labeled at overhyped and overrated, which we think is comical. Yes, injuries have been a problem for him in recent years, but he has the potential to be great for this squad. Look for him and Jones to keep on making impressive plays during camp.
