Wide Receiver Darius Slayton

Q: How wide were your eyes when you kind of noticed that there was more of an opening there [on the touchdown catch & run]? It looked like maybe it would be a 15 or 20-yards and then all of a sudden, the sideline as there for you.

A: I saw Hudson [Giants TE Tanner Hudson] out in front of me and once he was able to cut his guy off, I said 'It's all me from here. I've got to punch it in.' That's when I knew it kind of had a chance [to be a touchdown].

Q: What is that feeling like when it opened up there for you?

A: Well, when you're fast like me, and you tell everybody you're fast, it goes through your mind like, 'I can't get caught.' For me, I was just trying to get into the endzone.

Q: Have you thought about or reflected on about your journey this season? Just kind of where things were in training camp to now where you are an influential part in the offense and it's kind of hard to imagine this offensive attack without you.

A: It's been a journey. I just try to take every day one day at a time, do my best and make plays when they come my way. That's gotten me here, and I hope it will keep serving me well.

Q: In a year obviously where it's the situation of it's a "prove it" kind of year for you; you're due for a contract, Saquon [Giants RB Saquon Barkley] too, what do you make of him continuing to show what he has shown this year and the kind of money that is ahead for this guy?

A: I think he's shown that he's always been this talented of a running back. He's always been this guy. The injury stuff, there have been some questions, but we always knew that he was this guy and I'm glad that he's getting a chance to show it.

if he is back next year...that being said I think he gets a contract somewhere at WR3/WR4 money next year.

It really depends on how he finishes up the year. There's talent, but no consistency. If he can show consistency over the second half of the season and into the playoffs, the opportunity is there for him to make decent money. As for WR3/WR4 money, I don't know what that is, because in an ideal world your WR3 and WR4 receivers are either on their rookie deals or playing for their veteran minimum.
I think his career trajectory would have been much better

if other factors didn't force him into WR1 role his 2nd year. He had a strong rookie showing because he came.out of.nowhere, really. The next year we were forced to rely on him, which he wasn't ready for.

We are kind of at the same crossroads. He would be nice to have back, but absolutely not as a WR1. If they get a true lead receiver, this offense will really take off.
