Darius Slayton 2019 highlights.

What happened to this kid? He was a real find in 2019, but has really regressed since then. He dropped a ton of passes this past season. At this rate, he might be our only HR threat.

Foster is also a speed guy.

Drops were a big issue coming in the league. He didn't have them in 2019, but were a huge issue for the team the last two years.
I don’t think it can be understated how bad the

Judge/Garrett offense was

Not just schematically or creatively or in its inability to score points. EVERY PLAYER regressed in that system. Every single one, except Andrew Thomas.

problem with blaming the offense last year is that by the middle of December Slayton had the worst drop percentages of an WR with at least 40 targets.

You know you want him.
Highlights are just highlights

But after watching that…Slaytons issue certainly was not QB play.
Just seems

a lack of concentration producing drops, putting pressure on him, which affects his concentration, producing drops.
Also helps not to run with the ball before you fully catch it.
Watching those highlights just shows you how terrible Judge/Garrett's

offenses were. Don't tell me Jones has no talent. With a new offensive line and a new toy in Robinson, plus new coaching, if he's not injured I'll be shocked if he doesn't have at least a decent season. Doesn't mean he can't be improved on but the guy we saw with Jason Garrett is not the same guy as we saw in 2019.
Listen to what Ben said

the last 2 years Slayton was being asked to do things he's not good at (catches in traffic, etc). He runs 3 routes well. Deep post, fly, and deep out. Asking him to do anything else will cause poor execution and result in a LOT more drops.

He sucks as a HC but he's a really good OC.
Joe Judge and Jason Garrett

got a hold of him and add Gettleman’s offensive line to that and you’re looking at an ugly situation for any WR.
He was never that good

He was overrated. He's a 4th WR at best. No more.
He hasn't been released or traded...yet.

Despite all of the rumors and speculation. Will he make the final 53 after the Summer dust settles? Your guess is as good as mine. But if they don't feel he's got a future on the team, then I hope they can find a trade partner and move him.
