The Dave Gettleman era was not a kind one for the NY Giants, this is something we all know. Not only were his NFL Draft picks a disaster, but his decisions in free agency continue to haunt the organization.

Fortunately, Gettleman is nowhere near the team facility in East Rutherford and general manager Joe Schoen is now running the show. When taking a look at the past five years, there were some horrendous moves by Gettleman, but there is one good one we can smile about. With that said, here are the best and worst signings for the team since 2018:

Worst signing #1: WR Kenny Golladay

We definitely understand Gettleman's reasoning for signing Kenny Golladay at the time, as the Giants were in desperate need of a WR1. At the time, Golladay was only two seasons removed from a Pro Bowl appearance in which he caught 65 passes for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Despite this, we don't think the signing could have gone worse for the Giants, as not only was Golladay not worth the money he was being paid, but he was arguably one of the worst players at his position in the entire NFL. Remember, the Giants gave him a four-year deal worth $72 million.

In two seasons with the Giants, Golladay caught just 43 passes for 602 yards and one touchdown. It was almost as if one of the Monstars took away Golladay's talent like in Space Jam: Golladay never got on track and he was on the sidelines for the majority of Year 2.

In his infamous second season, Golladay caught just six passes in 12 games while dropping four in the process. Watching him on the field the few times he was allowed on it was just sad, especially when you consider how fun of a player he was to watch in Detroit.
