  • The New York Giants have signed WR Kenny Golladay to a four-year, $ 72 million deal.
  • Golladay played 47 games for the Detroit Lions, completing his possession with 183 catches, 3,068 reception yards and 21 touchdowns.
  • With the signing, the Giants improved their odds to +550 in the NFC East division.

The New York giants have signed a four-year $ 72 million deal with widespread successor Kenny Golladay.

According to a report from ESPN, the contract's cash value could be $ 76 million, including bonuses, and the guaranteed contract value could be $ 40 million.

Detroit Lions' decision not to put the franchise tag on Golloday by the deadline made the wide receiver try out the free agency market. And it has since become clear that it is meant for greener pastures. After last week's visit, the Giants were determined to get their number 1 receiver and now they finally got it.

New WR1 Giants

Golladay was selected by the Detroit Lions in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft from Northern Illinois. A pro bowler in 2019, Golladay was capped at just five games last season and finished with 338 yards, making just two touchdowns after several campaigns in a row with 1000+ receiving yards and 16 total touchdowns in 2018-2019. Overall, Golladey played 47 games for the Lviv, completing 183 catches on 3,068 reception yards and 21 touchdowns.

Last year, the 27-year-old said what he wanted to say in Detroit. However, after he said this, the Lions traded Matthew Stafford's QB for the Los Angeles Rams and new head coach Dan Campbell. Detroit also hired a new GM, Brad Holmes. His ability to make contested bottom field catches is expected to benefit the giants, who considered him a poor player. 1 wide receiver on the free agency market.

The addition of Golladey will not only give New York another offensive weapon, but also become the new WR1 from the Giants. Behind Golladey, the Giants have impressive depth with Sterling Shepard and Darius Slay in WR. They also have two talented teachers, Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph, plus a superstar running back at Sakwone Barkley. Now it's up to Daniel Jones to prove that he is the man who put it all together.

New York's odds for 2021

Before the Golladey was announced, the Giants were pure basement dwellers of the NFC East Division when it came to the best betting sites in the NFL. NYC ranges from +600 to +650, depending on which online betting site you use. After adding Golladay on most sites, the giants are still at the bottom. However, FanDuel put New York next to the Philadelphia Eagles at +550.

While Golladey did not affect the chances of Tom Brady and Tampa, the fact that New York's chances are dwindling suggests that he will have an impact on the giants' attack. And while the Dallas Cowboys (+105) and the Washington Football Team (+350) are still ahead of them in the team competition, we know that NFC East is still expected to be the closest division to the NFL next season, not that it is competitive, but more due to the lack of an elite team in the division.

Last season, the Washington DC football team took first place in the NFC East. However, they only won the division in their last regular season game. Washington finished the season 7-9, then the Giants and Dallas Cowboys finished 6-10. The Eagles were the last with a score of 4-11. Experts don't expect much change in NFC East, and with the addition of Golladey, the Giants have put themselves in a position to possibly steal the division like Washington did last season.
