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.
One of the best available free agents will spend some time with #Giants coach Joe Judge and the team’s brass. A deal could be the result, as NYG has been looking for a big-time WR. https://t.co/0XX8h2pRyI— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2021
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.
Dianna Russini of ESPN is reporting that Golladay has also received interest from the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as other teams.
Wide receiver Kenny Golladay has received an offer from the Cincinnati Bengals, per sources. I’m told no decision has been made, while other teams are interested. One of those teams, the New York Giants. @DanGrazianoESPN reporting the receiver will visit with New York.— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) March 17, 2021
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.
