Kenny Golladay isn’t someone the Giants should trade for
During the latest episode of ESPN New York Giants insider Jordan Raanan’s podcast Breaking Big Blue, he mentioned that the Giants called the Detroit Lions about wide receiver Kenny Golladay just last week.
it doesn’t look like the Giants will get Golladay and that’s a good thing because Golladay is set to hit the open market as a free agent this coming offseason. It wouldn’t make sense for them to trade for him because there wouldn’t be a guarantee that he would stay in New York unless they use the franchise tag on him.
Also, as Raanan mentioned, the Lions are trying to make the playoffs so trading Golladay wouldn’t make sense for them right now, which is why nothing has happened.
So far this season, Golladay has caught 20 receptions for 338 yards and three touchdowns. With numbers like those through seven weeks, maybe the Giants were hoping to get him for a fifth or sixth round pick.
