The New York Giants need to acquire a top wide receiver this off-season in order to help Daniel Jones as much as they can. To no one’s surprise, the Giants have struggled since trading star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and have failed to replace his production. It has been almost two years since the blockbuster trade, and the time has come for New York to finally add another top-tier talent at the wide receiver position. Kenny Golladay has played with the Detroit Lions his entire career and he could end up hitting the open market in March if the Lions don’t place the franchise tag on him. The Giants showed interest in him near the trade deadline and if the opportunity presents itself, the New York Giants signing Kenny Golladay would be a smart acquisition.
Kenny Golladay is 6’4″, 214 pounds and will turn 28 during the 2021 season. Some fans mostly think of Golladay as injury prone, but that is not the case at all. While he did miss 11 games in 2020, Golladay had only missed two games the previous two seasons. In those two seasons, Golladay eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards in each year and earned his only Pro Bowl nod in 2019. However, he did miss time in 2020 and he only had 20 receptions for 338 yards and two touchdowns. But if his output was adjusted to 16 games, Golladay was on pace for another 1,000 yard season, which would have been his third consecutive year doing so.
Golladay’s big frame gives him the ability to make contested catches when needed. Since 2018, Golladay is first in yards per reception, with 16.7.
