Giants minicamp Day 2 takeaways: Another light practice sends Giants into summer vacation

Darius Slayton has for years taken pride in being the fastest Giants’ wide receiver. There are, though, now several other players who might threaten him for that fictitious crown — most notably Parris Campbell, Jalin Hyatt and Jeff Smith.

Campbell on Tuesday staked his claim.

“Slay says a lot of things. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re true,” Campbell said with a laugh. “Deep down in his heart he knows.”

Campbell ran a 4.31 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. At that same event, Slayton ran a 4.39.

“We’re top-tier,” Lawrence said. “We’ve been playing together four, going on five years now. Sometimes we look at each other and know what’s about to happen and know what we want to do in that play. So, I think, you know, we both stayed healthy and grow through this time off and come back in the best shape of our lives and do something special.”
