The New York Giants signed one of the best wide receivers in the 2021 free-agent market. The team announced that they signed free agent Kenny Golladay on Saturday.

He has agreed to a four-year deal worth $72 million. He’ll have an average of $18 million per season.

He chose the Giants over offers reportedly from the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals.

With this agreement, the Giants now have a true No. 1 receiver. The team has not had a true No. 1 receiver since they traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.

The Giants have given quarterback Daniel Jones the tools to succeed this upcoming season. And if he doesn’t perform, the blame is going to be on him.

New York has a talented group to work with Jones. Saquon Barkley, who is returning from a season-ending injury, will be back in the backfield.

Jones’ receivers include Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Kyle Rudolph.

The 27-year-old Golladay spent the last four seasons with the Lions. He was a third-round draft pick by the Lions in the 2017 NFL Draft.

In his career, he has appeared in 47 games, including 39 starts. He has had 183 receptions for 3,068 yards and 21 touchdowns.

He missed much of the 2020 season due to injuries. He played in just five games this past season, where his best game of the season was six receptions for 114 yards in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Golladay’s best game of his career came during the 2019 season. He had four receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown in a 24-20 win over the Chicago Bears on November 28th, 2019.
