Good morning, New York Giants fans!
The center of attention of all things Giants related in the 2021 offseason in no small part due to the words of affirmation and free agency/draft activities from the from the front office, Daniel Jones MUST improve in 2021 to begin justifying the Giants organization’s faith in him.

New York Giants: WR Darius Slayton
It’s fair to wonder if surprise sensation Darius Slayton will have trouble remaining a key piece of the New York Giants receiving corps now that he’s joined by Kenny Golladay, John Ross and rookie first-round pick Kadarius Toney.
That said, the 2019 fifth-round pick doesn’t have the same look or feel as any of those guys, two of whom might not be capable of making the same impact as Slayton on the boundary. That’s why after consecutive 700-yard seasons to start his career, Slayton remains the top bargain with an average annual salary below $700,000.
The 24-year-old beat out a pair of strong trench players in defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence and center Nick Gates. The former is becoming a star up front, while the latter has flashed as a 2018 undrafted free agent. But both still make almost five times what Slayton pulls in.
After an eventful offseason, writer Pat Trania dives into the Giants cap situation for next year.
