Darren Waller says he was surprised by this week's trade that sent him from the Las Vegas Raiders to the New York Giants.

The tight end signed a three-year contract extension with the Raiders last fall.

"I did not see this coming," Waller said. "I was getting ready to just do everything I could to make myself available for the Raiders and get ready for everything that was going to start in mid-April. It caught me off guard, but it's the nature of the business."
