Kenny Golladay Set For Anonymous Season For New York Giants

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll says veteran WR Kenny Golladay has done a good job in preseason.

Of course, there is a certain element of ‘what else can he say’? The Kenny Golladay situation is one that seemingly won’t work out for the player or the franchise. 

Kenny Golladay is unlikely to see much game time once the season begins. However, he signed a four-year, $72 million contract last season.

His $17.5 million guaranteed for this year means he can’t be cut. As well as that, nobody wants to trade for him on that contract.

It’s not that he’s a bad player, he’s just on the wrong team. Golladay signed for the Giants at the end of the Dave Gettleman regime. 

For the Lions, he operated on the boundaries and won 50-50s, providing tight-window opportunities for Matthew Stafford.

This is incompatible with Giants QB Daniel Jones and Brian Daboll. Nonetheless, Daboll sounded a positive note about the 28-year old.

“He’s done a good job with what we’ve asked him to do,” Daboll said. “He’s competed. And he’s played multiple spots for us. He’s continuing to learn our offense. I think he’s done a good job of learning it. I know numbers and catches and all that, I’ve got all that, but he’s done what we’ve asked him to do.”

There’s no getting away from the numbers, though. If Golladay is learning the Giants offense, he’s doing it on a purely theoretical basis because he’s not producing yet.

Against the Jets in preseason, he had zero catches on one target. On 51 plays over three games, he had one catch on four targets for six yards. Golladay is destined to stay in New York, but don’t expect to be hearing much about him beyond this point.
