It’s gotten to the point where we’re barely hearing the name Kenny Golladay during games for the NY Giants. In what was supposed to be a statement year for the four-year, $72 million man, Golladay has been basically a ghost for Mike Kafka’s offense and things reached a new low for him in Week 15 against the Commanders.

Despite the Giants posting a remarkable 20-12 victory over Washington at FedEx Field, it was another night to forget for Golladay. He was only out on the field for one offensive snap.

The final stats read, zero receptions, zero targets, zero yards and only one snap. The countdown is on for him to get released this offseason.

Kenny Golladay’s time with the NY Giants should be ending soon

The day for when Joe Schoen officially pulls the plug on this failed experiment can’t get here any sooner. No disrespect to Golladay, a one-time fantastic wideout in the NFL, but he’s been arguably the biggest bust in team history. Even when he would see time on the field earlier in the year, drops would haunt him.

The emergence of Isaiah Hodgins has only made Golladay look worse. Hodgins, who was released by the Bills earlier in the season, has been a big-time contributor for the G-Men and Daniel Jones. The 2020 sixth-round pick has hauled in 25 balls for 261 yards and two touchdowns thus far in 2022.

He finished with four catches for 37 yards during Sunday Night Football against the Commanders, including a nice grab which set up NY with 1st and goal in the first half. Two plays later, Saquon Barkley rushed in from three yards out to cap an 18-play, 97-yard scoring drive. The rest of the campaign, Jones will keep putting his trust in Hodgins.

The same can’t be said for Golladay, who is basically just taking up a roster spot at this point. Golladay wanted to silence his haters and show everyone that he could be a solid player working under Brian Daboll and Kafka. Soon enough, he’ll hit free agency and see if a new team is willing to give him another chance. He has no business donning a Giants uniform in 2023.
