When it comes to guys who show up to work and get the job done, NY Giants wideout Dariius Slayton certainly comes to mind. Despite the G-Men going 6-11 in 2023, Slayton did everything he could to help out the offense and he once again led the team in receiving yards.

In the past, drops had been a problem for the veteran wideout, but he was thankfully able to clean things up this fall and winter. Despite that, it appears some people out there still don't think that Slayton is a key member for this team moving forward. Well, the speedster had quite the message for his haters, clapping back at the naysayers with quite the post:

Darius Slayton silenced his Giants haters in the best way possible

In his message, Slayton basically said he was playing with a hurt right hand all season, yet he only dropped two passes on the campaign. Not only that, but he finished '23 with 50 receptions for 770 yards and four touchdowns. Although the Giants struggled this year, Slayton was quite consistent.

Can you imagine if there was some continuity for the Giants quarterbacks/if Daniel Jones had stayed healthy? Jones missed several games due to a neck injury and then he tore his ACL in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. This was a major bummer for the entire offense, of course including Slayton.

If injuries weren't such an issue for the QBs, Slayton very well could have finished with the first 1,000-yard season of his career. Whenever the Giants needed someone to step up, he did. That was proven late in the campaign, with Slayton hauling in a touchdown in each of the final three contests.

Is Slayton considered a superstar in this league? No. However, no one can deny he's been able to make a strong impact for Brian Daboll and that general manager Joe Schoen was smart to bring him back on a two-year deal. Come 2024, we'd love to see Slayton put up even bigger numbers for Big Blue.
