This signing after what went down last season looks like a disaster, but all is not lost. To say Kenny Golladay underperformed in his first campaign with the Giants would be an understatement. Golladay was signed to a four-year deal worth $72 million.
The former Detroit receiver was a pretty darn good target during Matthew Stafford’s time as a Lion, leaving Motor city for the G-Men with two 1,000+ yards seasons and a Pro Bowl selection to his name. Despite the hype, Golladay struggled last year and he’s yet to really record some electric plays over at camp.
With a revamped offense also featuring dynamic receivers like Toney and Robinson, and a reworked offensive line, it is fair to have some optimism for the 28-year-old Golladay heading into 2022. However, it is important that Golladay has a strong rest of camp and manages to stay healthy.
Jones and Golladay have got to strengthen their connection this offseason in what is a huge year for both. In Jones’ case, he is fighting for his future, whereas Golladay will be fighting to rebuild a fractured reputation. We need to see some big-time showings from Golladay over the next week before the matchup with the Patriots arrives.
