The New York Giants landed one of free agency’s generally sought-after wide receivers.
Former Detroit Lions wideout Kenny Golladay and the Giants agreed to a four-year deal on Saturday worth $72 million – with a maximum of $76 million – which incorporates $40 million ensured, as indicated by the NFL Network.
Golladay, who just played in five games for the Lions in 2020, managed numerous wounds and just got done with 338 accepting yards with two scores. The last time Golladay played a full season, he had 1,190 yards and driven the NFL with 11 getting touchdowns in 2019.
In 2018, Golladay had 1,063 receiving yards with five scores.
After the signing was reported, Golladay talked how it affected him to team up with quarterback Daniel Jones.
“[Jones] is still kind of fresh in the league, a little bit,” Golladay said via NorthJersey.com. “I kinda wanna grow with him. I’m still growing as a player, and I feel like me and him can do some good things. We haven’t gotten on the practice field yet, but, me and him both are very excited.”
Over the last four seasons, the Giants haven’t had a lot of success. They got done with records of 3-13, 5-11, and 4-12. Last season, under first-year lead trainer Joe Judge, New York improved to 6-10 and just passed up a season finisher billet in the NFC East.
Jones believes something special is brewing in New York. Furthermore, he sold Golladay on the opportunity to play with the Giants.
“We’re trying to do something great here, and that’s what I’m all about,” Jones told Golladay.
