Kenny Golladay may soon be leaving Big Blue. Golladay signed a $72 million, four-year contract in March 2021. He had to battle injuries and inconsistency in his first season in New York. This has caused him to fall out of favor with the new regime.
After his touchdown against the New England Patriots in preseason, Golladay started to anger the NY Giants fans. Then, a few days later, Golladay became viral after he was caught not practicing hustling.
Golladay only caught two passes for 22 yards during the season-opener. Despite being named as a starter last Thursday, the troubled receiver played just two snaps. The Giants’ receiver is undoubtedly talented, but he has yet to score a touchdown. Joe Schoen may be moving on with Monday’s Golladay report by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The Giants are desperate for wide receiver help and it is logical to keep Golladay in the game this season, hoping that he can return to his Detroit form. It is now that the Golladay trade rumors are hot, so it is time for us to assess which teams would be the best trade partners.
To make this happen, the G-Men will need to accept most of Golladay’s salary. However, they may end up with a late-round selection in return. There are many intriguing options. These are the three teams that the NY Giants might trade Golladay to.
3. Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers should be the most motivated team to trade for a wide receiver. The Packers’ receiving core now includes Randall Cobb and Sammy Watkins as well as Allen Lazard and two rookies, Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, who traded Davante Adams to Las Vegas Raiders.
Green Bay has had a rough start to the season. After Watson’s touchdown, Aaron Rodgers vented his frustrations at his receiving unit in Week 1. Watkins played a great game in Week 2 but was placed on the injured reserve. This further depleted an already thin receiving unit.
Rodgers is the Packers’ quarterback. This season will be a Super Bowl. A sure-fire No. 1 receiver could be a boon for the Packers. The Packers could use a No. 1 receiver, but they won’t find one in the middle. Green Bay’s offense could use a large-body wide receiver like Golladay. He excels at jump ball and contested catch situations. Rodgers is the best at fitting balls into tight spaces, making Golladay a perfect fit.
