5 NY Giants who didn’t live up to expectations in 2022
By Reese Nasser
1. WR Kenny Golladay
Come March 15, Golladay’s time with the New York Giants will be coming to a close. Based on the past two seasons, it appears that this is the best-case scenario for both sides. In his first season with the Giants, in 2021, Golladay took the field in 14 total games. While playing, he recorded just 37 receptions for 521 receiving yards.
As the Giants offense returned to full force in 2022, many believed that Golladay would take on a bigger role in the offense. Unfortunately, he took a step back, while the rest of the offense seemed to find their footing.
While he took the field in 12 total games, Golladay earned just four starts, and played in 33 percent of the team’s total offensive snaps. Ultimately, he finished the season recording just six receptions for 81 receiving yards and one touchdown. This was a drastic drop off, even compared to his lackluster 2021 season.
Jones and the Giants offense found success in 2022. However, if Golladay had put together a stronger season that many believed he could have, this team could have finished the campaign on an even higher note. Now, though, he’ll be released soon enough and Golladay will be hoping a new team will give him a chance for 2023. His time with the G-Men could not have gone much worse.
