Another day, another twist in the soap opera that is the life of Kenny Golladay with the New York Giants. Golladay, on his four-year, $72 million deal, is not happy about his lack of playing time. That much has been made clear, as the second-year Giant has two receptions in 2022 in what was supposed to be a bounce-back season.

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said he’s going with a rotation at wideout and the best guys are going to play. Golladay has been told he’s doing all the right things, yet his two snaps in the win over Carolina was surprising to see.

While speaking with the media on Wednesday, Golladay said he’s not happy with his lack of action. You better believe he doesn’t agree with what Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen have had to say either.

"“The GM, head coach, all these coaches keep saying ‘you do everything right, you handle yourself the right way’. Like I said, It’s a little confusing,” Golladay said."

Just even looking at Golladay’s body language in that clip, you can tell he’s had just about enough of what’s going on in East Rutherford. He didn’t love his snap count vs. Carolina, a game the Giants were able to win, which now has them at 2-0. Golladay looked sharp in practice on Wednesday, but one has to wonder how much of the field he’ll see during Monday Night Football.

Daboll and Schoen most likely aren’t going to like this interview with Golladay. At the same time, it’s on Daboll to make sure he plays the guys who give the G-Men the best chance to win out there. Daboll felt like David Sills and Richie James were the better options and NY recorded the Week 2 win.

Will that be the same case against the Cowboys in Week 3? The less time Golladay sees, the more frustrated he’s going to be. He was even asked about whether or not he’d request a trade out of East Rutherford, with him saying he’ll see how things play out. Those aren’t the words of a wideout who’s content with his current situation. One can only hope things turn around for Golladay, but there’s not a ton of optimism for that to happen.
