Kenny Golladay isn’t it
The New York Giants desperately need to acquire a number one wide receiver this coming offseason. When looking at the soon-to-be free agents, I don’t think anyone of them are good enough.
If the Giants are going to get a true number one target they will need to look to the 2021 NFL Draft.
Former Dallas Cowboys’ Hall of Fame wide receiver and NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin believes that the Giants should sign Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay.
“They should absolutely you try to get that kid,” Irvin said, via NJ.com. “I think he would make a huge difference and give the Giants something that they need from wide receiver position. Allen Robinson is another guy that may be coming, but a guy like Golladay would be big in New York.”
I like that Golladay is 6-foot-4, which is ideal size for a wide receiver, but his production doesn’t make me believe that he can be a top-target for Giants’ starting quarterback Daniel Jones. Check out his stats below from NFL.com.
Golladay does have two seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving, but the fact that he’s only played a full season twice is concerning, but this is the NFL.
Now he could end up proving me wrong and sign with another team or possibly the Giants and prove that he’s a top wide receiver. But the Giants would be taking a risk by giving Golladay number one receiver money. The same goes for someone like Allen Robinson.
