Giants GM Joe Schoen: Darren Waller’s Future in NFL Still Uncertain for 2024 Season

Darren Waller’s decision on playing remains uncertain, says Joe Schoen

According to Giants General Manager Joe Schoen, the status of tight end Darren Waller for the 2024 season is still uncertain. Schoen stated at the league meetings that Waller has not yet decided whether he will retire or continue playing. Despite his injury history, Waller is under contract with the Giants through 2026 and is set to earn a non-guaranteed salary of $10.525 million for the 2024 season.

During his first season with the Giants, Waller had a productive year with 52 catches for 552 yards and a touchdown. However, he was sidelined for five games due to a hamstring injury, which has been a recurring issue for him in recent years. The Giants acquired Waller in a trade with the Raiders last year, and his talent and potential impact on the team are clear.

As Waller deliberates his future in the NFL, the Giants are patiently waiting for his decision. With his talent and potential impact on the team, Waller’s presence on the field would certainly be beneficial for the Giants in the upcoming season. However, health and well-being remain a top priority as they consider his long-term future in the league. The team will support Waller in whatever decision he makes, whether it be to retire or to continue his career with them.

Overall, while it remains uncertain what Waller will decide to do this offseason, one thing is clear: he has had an impressive career thus far and could make a significant impact on any team he plays for if he decides to continue playing beyond this year.
