The New York Giants are expected to release wide receiver Kenny Golladay. He spent two seasons with the team.

The Giants are waiting until the new league year on March 15th to cut ties with the talented receiver. With the franchise, he turned out to be one of the worst free agent signings in recent memory.

He was signed to be the Giants top receiver. However, he never developed into that role under former head coach Joe Judge or current head coach Brian Daboll.

Golladay signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Giants before the 2021 season. Golladay received $28 million in guarantees at signing.

He had the potential to receive $40 million in guarantees from the contract.

This past season, Golladay received $13 million. He had a cap hit of $21.15 million in 2022.

The Giants will be responsible for a $14.7 million dead cap hit once they release Golladay in March with a pre-June 1st release. However, that the same time, they will save nearly $7 million with this move.

He appeared in 12 games during the 2022 season. Yet, he made just four starts.

He had six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.

In two seasons with the Giants, he appeared in 26 games. He started 18 of those games.

Golladay had 43 receptions for 602 yards and one touchdown in a Giants uniform.

Before signing with the Giants, he spent four seasons with the Detroit Lions. While playing in Detroit, he appeared in 47 games and made 39 starts.

Golladay had 183 receptions for 3,068 yards and 21 touchdowns. He had back to back 1,000 yard receiving seasons in 2018 and 2019.
