This NFL offseason sure has been crazier than what we’ve seen in previous years, there’s no denying that. Things have been headlined by Russell Wilson traded to the Broncos, A.J. Brown moving to Philadelphia, Baker Mayfield landing with the Carolina Panthers, Deshaun Watson making his way to Cleveland and more.
With that said, there have also been plenty of rumors surrounding the NY Giants and possible moves that general manager Joe Schoen could make before Week 1 of the campaign arrives. Some made sense when they first dropped, but with training camp not so far away, many of those said rumors don’t look like they’ll be going down. Here’s a look at four that NY fans shouldn’t have to worry about.
4. Kenny Golladay being traded to the Chicago Bears
This spring, Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton mentioned the idea of the Chicago Bears trying to trade for wideout Kenny Golladay. This came as a bit of a surprise, but hey, Justin Fields sure would have loved adding a player of Golladay’s caliber to his weapons for the Chicago offense moving forward.
With Golladay signing his monster contract with the Giants last offseason, the expectation was that he was going to blow up for the G-Men and live up to the big amount of money the team put on the table for him. Instead, Golladay struggled in his first campaign at MetLife Stadium and somehow didn’t score a single touchdown.
That was disappointing to see and fans weren’t happy. Having said that, New York is not going to just wash its hands of a player with Golladay’s potential. He’s viewed as the kind of wideout who can completely change a game for the Giants. Schoen and new head coach Brian Daboll want to see what this kid is made of.
Despite him having such a big cap hit moving forward, the Giants are ready to see a return on their investment from last year. Golladay will 100 percent be motivated to have a huge season in 2022. Under Daboll’s direction, he should be able to do big things.
