Darren Waller, Giants’ tight end, announces retirement from NFL following breakup with Kelsey Plum

NFL star Darren Waller has informed the New York Giants that he is set to call it a day on his football career at the tender age of 31 after his recent split from WNBA star Kelsey Plum.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the veteran tight end ‘hasn’t attended workouts, and the team had known for some time he many not play.’

Waller, who only signed with the Giants last year, has until the start of the team’s mandatory minicamp (June 11) to officially make up his mind.

The one-time Pro Bowl selectee’s rumored decision comes just weeks after he and Plum – a point guard for the Las Vegas Aces – filed for divorce in April.

The couple were married for a little over a year, as they tied the knot in March 2023
