Golladay, 27, was one of the top wide receivers available in free agency this year and the Giants were in the market for a long receiver who could serve as a big target and red zone threat for third-year quarterback Daniel Jones.

The 6-foot-4, 214-pound Golladay was a third round selection out of Northern Illinois by the Detroit Lions and has gone on to become one of the top big-play receivers in the NFL.

After a rookie season that that saw Golladay miss five games to a hamstring strain, he went on to have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and led the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 2018 with 11. He has averaged 16.8 yards per reception over the past four seasons.

In 2020, Golladay missed 11 games with hamstring and hip issues.

A one-time Pro Bowler and the NFL’s touchdown leader at wide receiver in 2019, Golladay promises to provide a significant boost to the Giants’ stagnant offense.
