Giants WR Darius Slayton ‘satisfied’ with adjusted contract

Darius Slayton

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton participated in voluntary organized team activities this week after his contract was adjusted.

Slayton had been away from the team while seeking a revised deal or a new one with the team.

Per ESPN, Slayton has an opportunity to earn an additional $650,000 in incentives in addition to the $1.5 million already included in his contract. It was not known what he needed to accomplish in order to collect on the new incentives.

“I’m satisfied. We got done what we needed to get done and just looking forward to playing ball,” said Slayton, who will compete in the final season of his two-year, $12 million deal. “We just adjusted my contract this year a little bit. Just tried to make it a little bit more lucrative. Business is business and I’m here.”

Giants coach Brian Daboll was all business as well on Thursday.

“It’s good for him to be back,” Daboll said when asked about Slayton. “Again, it’s voluntary, so glad he decided to come.”

Slayton, 27, recorded 50 catches for 770 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games (13 starts) last season. He has 220 catches for 3,324 yards and 19 scores in 76 career games (53 starts) since being selected by the Giants in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Auburn.
