NFL free agency is right around the corner and teams across the league are making moves to gain some cap space.
The New York Giants plan to do just that on March 15.
According to Adam Schefter, the Giants plan to release Kenny Golladay from the roster on March 15.
Golladay has been an abysmal addition to New York since his signing. He’s provided minimal effort and is now being released well before the end of his contract.
Based on the numbers he’s put up since signing with the Giants, it’s safe to say he pretty much robbed New York blind.
In the end, the Giants will have paid Kenny Golladay $36M for a total of 43 catches and 1 touchdown. https://t.co/zAgWmsOcy3

This might go down as one of the worst contracts in NFL history. It’s pretty rare when a guy just phones it in after cashing a massive payday like this.
The last example I can remember is Albert Haynseworth after he signed a huge deal with the Washington Commanders.
It’s unclear what Kenny Golladay’s future holds. After putting up putrid numbers for the Giants it’s hard to imagine any team taking a chance on him. Unless of course he’s willing to sign a minimal deal.
As for New York, they still have plenty of questions revolving around the roster. Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley are due new contracts. Additionally, the Giants have one of the worst wide receiver rooms in the league.
With that said, it’ll be interesting to see how the franchise moves forward coming off of a surprisingly good season.
