New York Giants have signed wide receiver Kenny Golladay to a four-year 72 million dollar deal with a max of $76 million and $40 million guaranteed. Golladay has been in New York for the last few days visiting and talking with the Giants Staff. Golladay missed 11 games due to a hip injury this past season.
2019 was Golladay’s best and most healthy season, also reeling in a pro bowl selection that year. Golladay led the league in touchdowns in 2019 with 11, also had 65 receptions for 1190 yards.
The Perfect Fit
Daniel Jones is the best deep-ball passer in the entire NFL, coming with a deep ball passer rating of 132.5. Daniel Jones had a 39.5% big-time throw percentage when the NFL average is 29.5. On deep balls, he hits on 51% of them while the league average is 42. Golladay has 17 contested catches on 20 plus-yard throws since 2017, which is first among all wide receivers. Golladay is precisely what the Giants needed; he adds a deep ball threat and can pretty much make any catch.
The Giants offense ranked 31st, only coming before the New York Jets. From injuries to lack of execution, the Giants couldn’t find an answer for what to do. At the end of the season, general manager Dave Gettleman made it known that playmakers were something they would key on in the free agency. Dave Gettleman has at times lied about things he’s said, such as referring to keeping Odell Beckham Jr and then trading him. Gettleman has stuck to his word and signed who is viewed as the best free-agent wide receiver in Kenny Golladay.
Joe Judge Era
Joe Judge is no-nonsense at all, and he refuses to allow someone on his team, which he doesn’t believe fits. Giants players all over social media have been voicing and advocating for the Giants to bring in Golladay. Now that the deal is done, players and fans are all showing their excitement. Judge kept Golladay in town for a three-day visit to make sure he wasn’t hurt and that he could be a fit for this team.
