#1 New York Giants agree to 4-year von kill613 27.03.2021 15:38

While Kenny Golladay had reported interest from the Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens, the New York Giants ended up closing the deal. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the fifth-year wide receiver agreed to a four-year, $72 million dollar deal — up to $76 million after incentives — with Big Blue on Friday that includes $40 million in guaranteed money.To get more Giants MEN game jerseys with cheap price, you can visit giantsnfl.com official website.

The Giants seemingly had the most traction on a potential Golladay deal throughout the week. And it’s a fit that makes sense.The Giants were clearly missing an alpha wide receiver last season. They had solid complementary pieces in place, though, with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. New York also went out and brought in John Ross and Kyle Rudolph early in free agency. The hope is that Golladay ties all of those pieces together for third-year quarterback Daniel Jones.

Golladay’s 86.2 PFF grade over the past three seasons ranks 18th among 117 qualifying wide receivers. A hip injury limited him to just five appearances in 2020, but despite that, Golladay still ranks near the top of the league in two notable areas: downfield receiving yardage and contested catches.

Since 2018, Golladay’s 1,072 receiving yards on 20-plus-yard targets ranks fourth in the NFL — behind only Tyreek Hill, Mike Evans and Stefon Diggs. His 53 contested catches over that same stretch are fewer than only Allen Robinson II’s total. He’s truly one of the best “go up and get it” receivers the league has to offer. That’s a skill set the Giants’ offense lacked in 2020.

Golladay’s ability to come down with 50-50 balls should provide Jones a boost in his third year with the team. It’s setting up to be a make-or-break year for the former first-round pick out of Duke.

Jones’ 2020 grade told a far different story than his traditional passing numbers. He ended last season as PFF’s 17th-highest-graded quarterback but ranked just 29th among 32 qualifiers in passer rating (80.4). That difference can be partially attributed to bad luck. It also signals that Jones’ receivers weren’t giving him much help, turning ordinary throws into extraordinary plays.
