Darren Waller was close to retiring after disappointing first Giants season

Darren Waller will return for a second season with the Giants, Paul Schwartz and Ryan Dunleavy of The New York Post report.

Why is this news? Well, following the 2023 season, Waller expressed to individuals in the Giants organization that he was contemplating retirement, sources told the Post.

His first year with the team did not go as planned — he got hurt again and had only one touchdown reception.

It seemed as if the 31-year old tight end might have thought it was time to bid adieu to the NFL. Last year, Waller released his second rap album, “Walking Miracle.’’

Waller is not walking away. A Giants source confirmed Friday that Waller will play for the team in 2024.

He is due to make $10.5 million in base salary this season and count $14 million on the salary cap. He will not be a cap casualty, the Post learned.

The Giants want him back and hope he can stay healthy and be a more robust contributor to the offense than he was in 2023.

The Giants acquired Waller in March 2023, sending a third-round draft pick to the Raiders for what once was an explosive offensive weapon.
