With preseason games over every team across the NFL has to make their final cuts to get their rosters down to 53 players on Tuesday. That leaves the New York Giants with a tough decision to make at wide receiver that could result in the team cutting veteran Darius Slayton.

Sterling Shepard, Kadarius Toney and second-round pick Wan’Dale Robinson are all locks for the team’s 53-man roster while David Sills and Kenny Golladay appear likely to join them. That could leave Slayton on the outside looking in.

Slayton doesn’t know what’s going to happen, but he does not seem too worried about it.

“I don’t know,” Slayton said, Slayton said, according to the New York Giants. “Every year, it’s kind of like my fourth time doing this. I don’t know. I don’t really stress about it too much. At the end of the day, if it’s meant for me to be here, I’ll be here. If it’s not, I won’t.”

Even if the Giants do cut him, Slayton admits that he wouldn’t be surprised.

“I don’t think surprised is the word,” Slayton said. “I don’t think I would be surprised now.”

Regardless of the team’s decision, Slayton will know his fate no later than Tuesday at 4 p.m. – the deadline across the league.
