The New York Giants have already made some splashes this offseason, signing star quarterback Daniel Jones to a huge contract extension and acquiring Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller in a blockbuster trade with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Now, the Giants have reportedly agreed to terms with another free-agent wide receiver, after signing former Ohio State standout Paris Campbell.

On Thursday afternoon, NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo reported that the Giants have agreed to terms to re-sign Darius Slayton. According to Garafolo, New York’s deal with Slayton is for two years, $12 million base value with a max value of $16.5 million.

While it wasn’t a foregone conclusion that Slayton would return to the Giants, there was a report that surfaced early Thursday morning from, that the former fifth-round pick was weighing an offer to return to East Rutherford and at least one offer from elsewhere, which was believed to be the Atlanta Falcons.

Slayton enjoyed a nice bounce-back season with the team who drafted him back in 2019, hauling in 46 catches with 724 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 2022.

He reacted to the news of his reported signing on Twitter.
