2. Darius Slayton

The Giants are lacking with elite playmakers on offense. They don't have a true No. 1 weapon that will demand the attention of a defense. Receiver Darius Slayton provides New York with a speedy, deep threat that can stretch the field vertically.

Slayton was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Since entering the league, he's developed into a quality depth piece. The 27-year-old is coming off his best season in 2023. He snagged 50 receptions for a career-high 770 receiving yards with four touchdowns.

In 2023, Slayton inked a two-year, worth $12 million. He's now scheduled to make $7.95 million in 2024 but the Giants can easily free up space. New York could create $6.2 million in cap space by releasing Slayton. New York could use that same money and get a better weapon in free agency.
