The New York Giants made a nice move yesterday trading for Raiders tight end Darren Waller.  He is a big physical tight end who will help the Giants tremendously.  The Giants only traded away a third round pick for him too and the only major risk is that Waller has been injury prone the last two seasons.  Daniel Jones will now have another quality tight end to throw the ball to in addition to Daniel Bellinger who has a bright future with the Gmen.  Head coach Brian Daboll likes to use two tight end sets and this will only help that.  Below is my quick take on this from The Times Union:

The New York Giants need all the offensive weapons they can get, and trading for tight end Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders improves their team. Quarterback Daniel Jones needs help with the passing game, and Waller is considered one of the best tight ends in the NFL. If he can stay healthy, the Giants made a major upgrade at that position.

MJ and I had on our guy ESPN NFL Nation reporter for the NY Giants Jordan Raanan earlier this morning with us right here on Big Board Sports.  He likes the Waller move and agrees that it improves the Giants passing game.  He also likes the Okereke addition as well, the linebacker from the Colts.  However, Jordan says the Giants need to shift their focus toward Saquon Barkley and signing him.  Below is our full interview with him.

The Giants are getting better and better and more moves are surely to come very soon.
