Darius Slayton Admits Perception Of Him ‘A Little Annoying’

Wide receiver Darius Slayton says as long as the New York Giants win, he doesn’t care about his reputation.

However, he is clearly aware that he hasn’t yet hit number one receiver levels of production. Darius Slayton has led the Giants in receiving in three of the last four seasons.

He has done so without getting over 800 yards, though. The last Giants receiver to have a 1,000 yard season was Odell Beckham Jr. in 2018.

Darius Slayton signed a two-year deal to return to New York over the offseason, and he intends to be the first choice wideout.

“I wouldn’t say it bothers me because everybody doesn’t know what I know,” Slayton said.

“Everybody is not in the Giants’ building. At the end of the day, you can only judge based on what you see from afar.

“You see this guy go for 1,010 (yards) or see a guy go for 100 yards every week, and you go, ‘He’s really good,'” Slayton said. “Some of these guys play with nobody. I play with Saquon (Barkley). Where do you think the ball is going first? Not me. We had (Sterling Shepard), Evan Engram and now Darren (Waller).

“I didn’t play with just a bunch of bums. That’s a little annoying because at the end of the day, it’s not like I’ve ever been the only person or one person to get the ball, whereas somebody [else] is. It is what it is. At the end of the day, I just play to win. As long as the Giants win, I’ll be all right.”

“I believe in myself, I believe in my ability. I believe in the work I put in the offseason,” Slayton said. “Whether we add 10 guys, whether we add all of you guys, I believe I’ll find my way on the field.”
