2021 NFL Free agency: Giants to bring Kenny Golladay in for a visit

“Mutual interest” between the two parties

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants will bring free agent wide receiver Kenny Golladay in for a visit.

The Giants, who are in desperate need of a true number one wide receiver, have long been suspected of having an interest in Golladay.

It isn’t a big surprise that the Giants want to meet with Golladay before making a contract offer. The 27-year-old receiver is coming off a season in which he played just five games, missing the first two games of the season and then the final nine after straining a hip flexor in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

This will give the Giants’ medical team a chance to examine Golladay and for the team to talk directly to the player. While both sides may want to get a deal done, it may ultimately hinge on how the Giants perceive Golladay’s injury risk and whether the team is able to structure a contract the player is satisfied with.

Update

Dianna Russini of ESPN is reporting that Golladay has also received interest from the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as other teams.

Albert Breer of the MMQB and NBCsports has confirmed Russini’s reporting, adding that the Bengals are offering Golladay a one-year deal. The Bengals have a need as well, with long-time veteran A.J. Green leaving for the Arizona Cardinals. There is no word yet on who the other teams to express interest might be, though the Miami Dolphins were thought to be interested earlier in pre-free agency.
