Kenny Golladay is demanding more playing time from the New York Giants. The 28-year-old wide receiver has lost his starting job under the direction of new head coach Brian Daboll and saw sparse action against the Carolina Panthers
Munich – The rumour mill surrounding wide receiver Kenny Golladay has been bubbling for several weeks. The 28-year-old has not yet been able to prove himself under the new coaching staff with Head Coach Brian Daboll.
After playing just two snaps on the turf in last weekend’s game against the Carolina Panthers, Golladay commented on his situation in a media roundtable on Wednesday, saying, “I should get more playing time. I don’t agree with the coaching decision. “
New York Giants: David Sills instead of Golladay
In place of Kenny Golladay, David Sills was in the starting lineup last Sunday. Daboll had discussed this decision with Golladay in advance. Trade rumours have also been circling Golladay for several weeks. The wide receiver wants to “see how the situation develops.”
The Giants gave Golladay a four-year deal last season that could pay him up to $72 million ($40 million of which is guaranteed). Accordingly, a trade is likely to be difficult, as Golladay has a cap hit of just under $21 million.
Injuries overshadowed Golladay’s first season with the Giants. He caught 521 yards and no touchdowns. So far this season, he’s collected two catches for 22 yards.
