Signing Kenny Golladay was a great move
The New York Giants had to add a number one wide receiver to their roster this offseason and they did that when they signed Kenny Golladay to a massive 4-year, $72 million contract with $40 million guaranteed.
Chris Roling of Bleacher Report mentioned that Giants signing Golladay as the 7th worst offseason decision in the NFL. Here’s a portion of what he wrote:
The desire to get third-year quarterback Daniel Jones better weapons is admirable, but Golladay only suited up for five games last year because of injuries and had one of the stranger trips to free agency amid a weak market for his position.
Granted, he’s 27 and had an 11-touchdown season in 2019, but a lot will have to go right for him to put up a number like that in New York considering he’ll be catching passes from Jones instead of Matthew Stafford.
Context is important too. This was a ridiculously deep year in free agency for wideouts, and the Giants took receiver Kadarius Toney in the first round of the draft last Thursday. New York could have spent less for more of a sure thing and used the remaining capital elsewhere.
I think the Golladay signing looks even more brilliant after the Giants were unable to get either Devonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle in the first round of the NFL Draft this year. They ended up with Kadarius Toney, but he’s not a number one receiver right now and may never be one.
