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

Giants GM Joe Schoen Left Darren Waller’s Future in the NFL Uncertain for 2024 Season.

Giants General Manager Joe Schoen is unsure about the future of tight end Darren Waller for the 2024 season. Schoen stated at the league meetings that Waller has not yet decided whether he will retire or continue playing. Although Waller previously mentioned that he would make a decision soon, Schoen confirmed that the team will give him enough time to come to a conclusion.

Last year, Waller was acquired by the Giants through a trade with the Raiders and had a productive season, with 52 catches for 552 yards and a touchdown. However, his hamstring injury sidelined him for five games, which has been an ongoing issue for him in recent years. Despite this injury history, Waller is still under contract with the Giants until 2026 and is set to earn a non-guaranteed salary of $10.525 million for the upcoming season.

As Waller contemplates his future in the NFL, the Giants remain patiently waiting for his decision. With his talent and potential impact on the team, it would certainly be beneficial if Waller chose to play again next year. However, the health and well-being of the player are always top priorities when considering his long-term future in the league. The team will support whatever decision he makes, whether it be to retire or continue playing with them in 2024.
