Kenny Golladay listened to the recruiting pitches from his prospective teammates, including quarterback Daniel Jones.To get more YOUTH LIMITED Giants jerseys with cheap price, you can visit giantsnfl.com official website.
New York Giants coach Joe Judge laid out his vision for what he is trying to build, while offensive coordinator Jason Garrett broke down where he expected Golladay to fit and how they'd have success together.
After that — and the four-year, $72 million deal, of course — Golladay "was all the way in."
The Giants have landed the best offensive weapon on the free agent market with Golladay agreeing to terms, a person with knowledge of the situation told the USA TODAY Network. The 6--4, 218-pound Golladay is a massive presence who will provide a missing component on the outside in the Giants' offense and a reliable target downfield for Jones, whose development is critical heading into his third season.Golladay had two 1,000-yard receiving seasons in four years with the Detroit Lions and is just one year removed from a league-leading 11 touchdown catches. The 27-year-old began his visit with the Giants on Thursday night and that continued through Friday morning, including a physical and meetings with team brass, including Judge.
Golladay went to dinner Friday night in Hoboken, N.J., with safety and special teams captain Jabrill Peppers, who offered his own recruiting pitch. The Giants included $40 million guaranteed in the contract, and incentives could push his earnings to a maximum value of $76 million.
Jones reached out to Golladay during the process, and according to the latter, the quarterback told him: "We're trying to do something great here, and that's what I'm all about."
There have been questions regarding Golladay's departure in Detroit from a medical standpoint. A hip injury and ensuing hamstring issue limited him to five games last season.The Giants wanted to also gain further clarity on how things went down with Golladay's exit from the Lions. Those answers clearly provided confidence in the Giants' pursuit of the most established wide receiver on the market. ESPN reported Wednesday night that Golladay did have an offer of a one-year deal from the Cincinnati Bengals.
"I think it's really just, they just wanted to lay eyes on me," Golladay said. "Taking a different approach about this whole process, and it kind of worked out for both sides. To come in and see what they're all about ... they were able to pick my brain, and I think it worked out pretty smooth."
