BREAKING: Darren Waller Has Informed The New York Giants That He’s Retiring

Darren Waller’s NFL career is over.

The 31-year-old tight end has informed the New York Giants that he is retiring from the league after just one season with the team. Waller has not attended any offseason workouts and the team was anticipating that he would indeed retire.

Waller ends his career with 350 career receptions for 4,124 yards and 20 touchdowns. He earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2020.

Meanwhile for the Giants, they save $11.6 million in cap space and were operating under the assumption that Waller wouldn’t be back throughout most of the offseason, so the team added veterans Jack Stoll and Chris Manhertz and used a 2024 fourth-round pick on Penn State TE Theo Johnson, adding to a tight ends room that includes returnees Daniel Bellinger, Lawrence Cager and Tyree Jackson.
