The Giants acquired Waller in exchange for a third-round draft pick, which New York received as part of the Kadarius Toney trade with the Kansas City Chiefs at last season’s deadline. The deal won’t become official until the start of the new league year, which arrives on Wednesday at 4 pm ET.
Waller played in nine games for the Raiders in 2022. He had 28 receptions for 388 yards and three touchdowns. He was a Pro Bowler in 2020 when he had his breakout season. He had 107 catches for 1,196 yards and nine touchdowns.

The exchange also came about 10 days after Waller married Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum. According to The Athletic, Raiders coach Josh McDaniels accidentally leaked the news of the wedding at the NFL Scouting Combine, and the tight end was reportedly upset when he appeared in the paper. The couple had not publicly announced their plans to marry.
Plum reacted to the exchange later on Tuesday.
«Probably because he wasn’t invited to the wedding lol,» Plum tweeted in response to Robert Griffin III’s reaction to the deal.
