Should the Giants sign Kenny Golladay?
The New York Giants and the rest of the NFL got a lot more clarity this week on what the free agent market will look like when it comes to the wide receiver position with Allen Robinson and Chris Godwin each getting tagged.
On the flipside, the Detroit Lions decided not to use the franchise tag on Kenny Golladay.
As Jordan Raanan of ESPN mentioned in a recent article, the belief around the NFL is that the Giants are interested in Golladay.
The belief around the league is the Giants are interested in Golladay. They even checked on him last year prior to the trade deadline, according to a source.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Giants are likely interested in Golladay, but the big question is whether or not they can afford to actually sign him.
When looking at what the highest paid receivers in the NFL are getting paid, I could see Golladay getting paid between $18-22 million per year. Now can the Giants afford to pay that?
While releasing offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler certainly helped free up cap space, New York will also likely need to move on from Nate Solder or re-work his contract in order to free up even more cap space in order to sign one of the top free agents this year, whether that’s Golladay or not.
