The New York Giants have made a blockbuster trade.
They committed to Daniel Jones as their long-term quarterback and needed to get him some weapons.
According to Tom Pelissero, the Giants have acquired pro-bowl tight end Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders.

This was a shocking deal that almost no one saw coming.
The Raiders just signed a new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
You would think they would want to keep Waller with their explosive offense.
But, the Raiders had different plans.
For New York, this is a slam-dunk move.
All it cost them to land Waller was a third-round pick.
So, even if it does not work out, they did not give up much anyway.
Plenty of fans are happy that the Giants are trying to help their quarterback out.

Also, after surprisingly making the playoffs last season, New York is looking to do it again.

While Waller is a very nice piece, his main question mark is health.
Last season, Waller only played in nine games.
He is two years removed from his last Pro Bowl season and will be 31 years old next year.
But, he is an asset when healthy.
WE FINALLY GOT A GOOD PLAYER ON OFFENSE NO WAYYYYYY

It will be interesting to see how the Giants incorporate him into their offense next year.
They were not much of a passing offense in 2022, but they will need to change that.
Paying Jones $40 million per season means he needs to start throwing the ball like an elite quarterback.
The Giants’ front office is doing it’s best to make that easy on Jones.
Saquon, Waller, Wandale, Hodgins, Bellinger, Shep when healthy. Need 2 guys in the draft and we have a top 15 potential offense led by DJ… Still a lot of work to be done.
