New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was among players who helped the club in its pursuit of Kenny Golladay in free agency, and those efforts paid off.
The Giants made arguably free agency's biggest splash by inking the former Detroit Lions receiver to a reported four-year, $72-million deal Saturday.
Golladay said Jones told him that the Giants are "trying to do something great," adding that he can help Jones improve after consecutive roughing campaigns in the NFL.
"First off, he is still kind of fresh in the league a little bit," the wideout said of his new quarterback. "I want to grow with him. I'm still growing as a player. I feel me and him can do good things."
Jones has struggled with turnovers through his first two pro seasons, leading the league in fumbles each year. The 2019 sixth overall pick is 8-18 as a starter and threw just 11 touchdowns to 10 interceptions last season, creating questions for the Giants under center.
New York was just one of several teams pursuing Golladay, but the team's offensive system ultimately was a difference-maker for the star pass-catcher.
