NY Giants Star Resumes Music Career Amid Uncertain Future With Team

Darren Waller, one of the Giants’ biggest offseason acquisitions from last season, had a solid season in his first year with the team. Waller put up 552 yards with a single receiving touchdown, despite being injured for a significant amount of the season.

Now that the Giants’ season is over, Waller is looking to resume his music career, which he had to briefly halt due to his other job. The Giants tight end recently announced that he will be releasing a single from his imminent rap album on Feb. 16.

Waller is not a stranger to the music industry, having released an album titled “Walking Miracle” in February 2023. Waller currently has over 28 thousand monthly listeners on Spotify.

In regards to his tenure with the Giants, Waller is set to have a $14.4 million cap in 2024, leaving the Giants with the option to cut him to help their finances. However, despite the fact that Waller would free up $7 million in cap space, if cut, the Giants would have to eat $7.4 million in dead money, leaving them with a tough decision.

“I’ll approach it like I’ll be back,” Waller said at his locker on Jan. 8. “Whatever happens is whatever happens.”

Following a 6-11 season, the Giants are looking to replenish their roster for the next season to fight for a playoff spot. However, whether or not Waller will be part of that roster remains to be seen.
