While most of the planet seems focused on whether Aaron Rodgers will come to the New York Jets, the co-tenants of MetLife Stadium are quietly going about their business this off-season.
The Giants added former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller in a trade with Vegas in exchange for a third round pick. The addition of Waller who is 6-foot-6 gives quarterback Daniel Jones a huge target to throw to in the middle of the field.
The last full season Waller played was in 2020 when he hauled in 107 passes for 1,145 yards.
Meanwhile, the Giants signed former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Bobby Okereke to a four-year, $40 million deal. Okereke had 283 tackles combined the past two years in Indianapolis, and adds a sideline-to-sideline tackler for Big Blue’s defense.
The Giants also brought in defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches on a three-year deal from Tampa Bay, and re-signed running back Matt Brieda to a one-year, $2.4 million deal.
