Joe Schoen on Darren Waller’s Future with Giants for 2024: Will He Retire or Continue Playing?

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

Darren Waller’s future with the Giants for the 2024 season is uncertain, according to General Manager Joe Schoen. Schoen stated at the league meetings that Waller has not yet decided whether he will retire or continue playing. The team will give him the necessary time to make up his mind, despite Waller previously mentioning that he would be making a decision soon.

Waller, who was acquired by the Giants in a trade with the Raiders last year, had a productive season 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. 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.

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, the health and well-being of the player 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 the Giants.
