4. Kenny Golladay needs to step up as a leader
After signing Kenny Golladay to his massive four-year deal last offseason, Giants nation was ready to see him blow up during his first season. That didn’t happen, as Golladay somehow didn’t record a single touchdown in 2021. No one expected that to happen and you could see just how frustrated the talented WR was.
Looking ahead to 2022, Golladay has to be better, plain and simple. At camp, he’s struggled with some drops and he’s not looking as explosive as we’re used to. On top of that, the fact that he hasn’t been making a ton of headlines hasn’t been good to see. With this, there’s another way Golladay can turn heads: by becoming a leader.
The Giants are pretty young at the position, and with Sterling Shepard still not out on the field due to his torn Achilles, someone needs to enter in as the captain of the WR unit. Enter Golladay. When at the top of his game, Golladay is a certified stud. He’s got plenty of experience too, with his advice definitely helping out Kadarius Toney, Robinson and others.
No one knows when Shepard is going to be out on the field with the rest of the team. While it could be sooner than later, the time is now for Golladay to rise to the occasion and be a mentor for his teammates.
