Won't join Jets after workout

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-06

Golladay worked out with the Jets on Wednesday but won't sign with the team, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Golladay has been searching for any opportunity to make an impression since being let go by the Giants back in March, but for now he has to keep looking. The 29-year-old wideout posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with Detroit in 2018 and 2019, but he hasn't recorded 40 catches in any season since.

Let go by G-Men

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-15

The Giants released Golladay on Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The news comes as no surprise, as Golladay put up a pair of highly unproductive seasons for the Giants after signing a four-year, $72 million contract in 2021. The move will save New York $6.7 million against the salary cap. As for Golladay, he's unlikely to draw anything more than a one-year deal at a low salary level as he heads into free agency. The wideout had a pair of 1,000-plus yard receiving seasons in four years with the Lions but tallied a meager six catches on 17 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in 2022.

Will be released

The Giants will release Golladay on March 15, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

By waiting until the new league year starts, the Giants will save $6.7 million against their salary cap. The 2017 third-round pick signed a massive four-year, $72 million contract with New York in March of 2021, but he failed to live up to the lofty deal, making his release unsurprising. He posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Lions in 2018 and 2019 and secured 16 touchdowns during that stretch. However, he's caught just 63 passes for 940 yards and three scores in 31 appearances over the past three seasons. Per Field Yates of ESPN, Golladay will still be owed $4.5 million by the Giants after his release, so he may be willing to take a cheaper deal with a contending team in 2023, though it remains to be seen what type of attention he'll draw as a free agent.

Finally finds end zone

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-08

Golladay caught two of seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Eagles.

In his 26th and potentially final game for the Giants, Golladay finally got into the end zone for his first TD with the team, catching a 25-yard toss from Davis Webb late in the fourth quarter during a game in which New York was resting most of its starters. Golladay suited up for 12 games this season and finished with a 6-81-1 line on 17 targets, disastrous production relative to his cap hit of over $21 million. The 29-year-old has two more years remaining on his current deal, but it seems almost certain the Giants will cut him loose in the offseason.
