Raiders trade TE Darren Waller to Giants for third round pick
The same day the Raiders agree to terms with a receiver, they have agreed traded one of their best receivers away. Darren Waller is headed to New York in exchange for a third round pick.
Trade compensation: Giants are sending a third-round pick (No. 100) to Las Vegas for TE Darren Waller, per sources.

Just a couple seasons ago, Waller set a new franchise record with 107 catches in a season and headed to the Pro Bowl. He was celebrated as a great success story as someone who turned his life around after struggling with drug addiction early in his career.
Now a season after receiving a new long term deal with the Raiders — then missing eight games with injury — he is sent away for just a third rounder (pick 100).
Combined with the team letting Foster Moreau hit the market, the Raiders are now without both their starting tight ends from the past four years.
