New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll has a different take when looking at the tenure of wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who has struggled since he inked a four-year, $72 million contract during the 2021 offseason with the Giants.
Golladay was expected to perform at the same level as he did when he was a star with the Detroit Lions, but that hasn’t happened.
However, Daboll doesn’t seem to see it that way, despite the numbers. Golladay had a rough start to his Giants career, hauling in just 37 passes on 76 targets for 521 yards and not a single touchdown.
Golladay didn’t look much improved during the Giants preseason opener against the New England Patriots.
“I think he’s acclimated himself well in terms of what we’re doing,” Daboll said, according to Pro Football Talk’s Josh Alper. “Again, all receivers, they’re different. Some are really shifty and quick. Some are big and physical. It’s just a matter of when you have an opportunity to go out there and make plays, which he’s made some of them, that you go ahead and make them. I’ve been pleased with how he’s handled himself. He’s been a pro, and he’s competing everyday with those guys.”
