3 things holding back the NY Giants offense
2. Lack of talent at wide receiver
The lack of overall talent at the wide receiver position has been a big issue for the Giants for some time now. It also doesn’t help that the best wide receiver on the roster, Sterling Shepard, is sidelined for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. It is also more than likely the last time Shepard has played for the Giants, as he becomes a free agent at the end of this season after he restructured his deal.
It is well known by now that the signing of Kenny Golladay from Detroit last offseason has not worked out, and the player is now showing his displeasure to the media after being benched for Week 2 versus the Carolina Panthers. If the Giants could trade or cut Golladay, then they would, but finding a trade partner may be tough due to his massive salary.
The wide receiver position needs to be heavily addressed this offseason and will likely need to see at least two players added to the group help out the offense next year, as it does not seem likely that GM Joe Schoen will bring in free agent additions during this season. That might change, but the WR group as a whole is preventing Daniel Jones from showcasing his best stuff.
