New York Giants Receiver Reveals Odd Offseason Diet

Going into his second NFL season, New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt has gotten honest about his offseason preparation as he and the Giants look to improve from their 6-11 record last year.

Hyatt—6’0″, 185 pounds—is a smaller-framed receiver as more of a speedster-type, finding most of his success in the deep-passing game.

In his three seasons with the Tennessee Volunteers, Jalin Hyatt accumulated 108 receptions, 1,769 yards, and 19 touchdowns. Prior to declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft, Hyatt had his breakout season in 2022, earning the 2022 Fred Biletnikoff Award presented annually to the most outstanding receiver in the nation.

However, his rookie campaign didn’t go as planned, as he hauled in just 23 receptions for 373 yards and no touchdowns in New York.

Granted, Hyatt was drafted to a Giants offense that ranked 30th in points per game (15.6) in 2023. Considering the top receiver for Big Blue had just four touchdowns on the year, Hyatt’s lack of production isn’t completely indicative of his abilities on the field.

New York had a quarterback room of three rotating quarterbacks between Tommy DeVito, Daniel Jones, and Tyrod Taylor. These three quarterbacks led the Giants to a passing offense that ranked 31st in passing yards (2,886) and 28th in passing touchdowns (15), making things relatively challenging for receivers in the offense.

In order to help the stagnant offense, the Giants drafted one of the top receivers in the 2024 NFL Draft, Malik Nabers, causing more competition among pass-catchers in an offense looking to score more frequently next season.

Part of that process, for Hyatt specifically, is adding proper weight and muscle this offseason to make him more of a threat all over the field rather than being primarily a deep threat.

The diet Hyatt committed to is one that not many NFL fans would expect for a player looking to build a body that competes against some of the best athletes in the United States.

In an installment on the New York Giants YouTube Channel, John Schmeelk met with the Giants’ wide receiver room, getting to know more about their offseason preparation.

In that interview, Hyatt dropped a piece of knowledge that has the younger generation of future NFL players racing to their cabinet to follow the diet of an active NFL player.

The key to Hyatt’s offseason preparation has two main focuses.

Focus No. 1: Finish the full meal on his plate, ensuring proper nutrition.

Focus No. 2: Following that meal with a PB&J for extra protein and calories.

Now, this shouldn’t be the diet of all players in the league, considering each body has different needs. Hyatt finds peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to be the snack he can follow meals with to ensure he gains weight that doesn’t bring down his athleticism.

Whether or not this will become the new fad diet in the NFL, who knows? But, Hyatt is giving the PB&J diet a go heading into the upcoming season.
