East Rutherford-The New York Giants held their third summer training camp practice of the year on Friday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The NY Giants finished their week of camp and everything seems to be going well in Giants’ land.

Danie Jones and WR Darius Slayton had a nice chemistry going on the 7-on-7 drills. Slayton made a unbelieveable over the shoulder catch near the right sideline for a 48-yards.

They were drafted together by the NY Giants in 2019, Daniel Jones was the sixth-overall pick, Darius Slayton in the fifth round.

“Daniel Jones might be a first-ballot Hall of Fame quarterback one day,” Slayton said. “We don’t know yet, do we?”

Slayton re-signed a two-year, $12 million deal that could max out at $16.5 million is expected to be that go to receiver on the outside. He just have to be able to stay on the field.

Slayton’s 15.0 yards per reception was the third most in the NFL since 2019 but he won’t have to carry all the weight this season.

Jones has new toys in his arsenal this season. The G-Men added tight-end Darren Waller and receivers Parris Campbell and Jalin Hyatt will make for a lot of yards after the catch this season.

Hyatt has been very impressive throughout the whole week. He runs very crisp routes and he is not afraid to dart across the forbidden zone—over the middle.

With Waller on the field, the Giants can get very creative with their play calling because he can do it all and do it well.

In 2019 and ’20, Waller caught 197 passes combined for 2,341 yards and 12 touchdowns. The G-Men had 17 TD catches last season. Waller was hampered by thigh and knee injuries the past two years, but he looks good to go now.

If the Giants are able to keep Jones upright and give him throwing lanes, the NY Giants are going to be a formidable opponent to be reckon with in the NFC East Division.
