On Tuesday, former Auburn Tigers catcher and current New York Giants catcher Darius Slayton announced via Twitter that he would be hosting a football camp on June 18.
It will be called the “Slayton Skills Camp”. Children between the ages of nine and thirteen are permitted to attend camp. He also added that the event would take place at Greater Atlanta Christian School in Atlanta, Georgia. The camp will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET.
The former Auburn Tiger was drafted by the New York Giants in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. So far, he’s had 124 receptions for 1,830 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. Not too long ago, many reporters speculated that the Giants were moving on from Slayton in the NFL Draft. However, it looks like he will be with the team for at least a year as the rumors have died down.
It’s good to see the Giants organization giving the Georgia native another year. After the end of the 2022 season, he will become an unrestricted free agent. This means Slayton can sign with any team he chooses once free agency begins. For now, he is focused on teaching younger generations in his hometown and is excited about another season in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
