Darius Slayton, born on January 12, 1997, hails from Norcross, Georgia, and is a prominent American football wide receiver, currently playing for the New York Giants in the National Football League (NFL).

His collegiate football journey led him to Auburn University, where he showcased his talent on the field.

Eventually, in the 2019 NFL Draft, Slayton was chosen by the New York Giants in the fifth round. This selection made him the 18th wide receiver to be picked that year.

Before his college and NFL career, Slayton attended Greater Atlanta Christian School, where he not only excelled academically but also made his mark on the football field.

His remarkable high school performance earned him an opportunity to participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

At Auburn, Slayton initially redshirted in 2015, after which he actively contributed to the team’s success from 2016 to 2018.

His journey from high school stardom to college and, eventually, to the NFL reflects his dedication and talent in the world of American football.

Darius Slayton Wife Or Who Is He Dating?

The Giant’s player, Darius Slayton, is not married to anyone and does not have a wife at the moment. 

However, fans seemed to confuse him with the Eagles’ cornerback Darius Slay, who is married to Jennifer Slay. 

The difference between these two players’ names is only three alphabets: “t-o-n.”

So, it is natural for fans to be confused between the two. 

Also, when it comes to his dating life, he does not have a girlfriend or committed to any sort of relationship with anyone.

But he does have something to say about dating as a football player.

When SportsCenter’s Twitter asked its followers about the “scariest curse in sports history,” Slayton replied, “Dating a Kardashian.”

In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the so-called Kardashian “curse,” with some people believing that individuals who become romantically involved with members of the Kardashian-Jenner family might experience bad luck or negative outcomes.

Speculation has arisen, suggesting that perhaps someone from the Kardashian-Jenner family declined a connection with Darius Slayton, leading to his perceived salty comments.

However, it’s important to emphasize that these are purely speculations, and no concrete evidence supports such claims.

Given the attention and superstitions surrounding the Kardashian “curse,” it’s possible that individuals like Slayton may choose to keep their distance from such relationships, being aware of the perceived consequences associated with them.

Ultimately, it remains a matter of personal choice and belief.

Meet His Parents And Family Members 

Darius Slayton was born into the loving household of his parents, Eddie Slayton and Pamela Slayton.

During the football season, his father, Eddie, stays with him in North Bergen, where he oversees his finances and provides support.

Before each game, Slayton carries a meaningful reminder on his wrist tape: the letters SSC, which stand for Slayton, Stallworth, and Crawford.

These letters pay homage to his grandmother Maxine’s maiden name and hold significant personal importance.

Slayton’s grandfather, Stallworth, despite facing the challenges of dementia in his later years, left a lasting impact on Darius.

He admired his grandfather’s steadfastness, frugality, and even his love for speed. Stallworth’s family has owned 70 acres of farmland in South Alabama since the abolition of slavery, where they raised 14 children.

During a time when Black students did not have access to transportation for their segregated schools, Stallworth’s father took matters into his own hands.

He purchased and repaired an old bus, allowing his children to take turns driving themselves to school.

This upbringing instilled in Slayton the valuable lesson he carries with him: “Work for what you want, and don’t depend on anybody else.”
