Even though the New York Giants are 2-0, there’s an elephant in the room they have to address sooner or later. The nature of Kenny Golladay’s contract — and his lack of playing time over the first two weeks — has overshadowed New York’s first 2-0 start in six years, with Golladay getting just two snaps in Sunday’s win over the Carolina Panthers.
Since it costs more for the Giants to cut Golladay than to keep him, he’s on the roster. But head coach Brian Daboll doesn’t have to play Golladay while the Giants are paying him $21.15 million this season — and he’s doing just that.
Golladay played just two snaps Sunday, and he’s not pleased over the development.
“I don’t agree with it,” Golladay said at his locker Wednesday afternoon, via SNY. “I should be playing regardless. That’s a fact.”
Golladay has just two catches for 22 yards on the season, but saw his snap count diminish from 46 in the season opener against the Tennessee Titans to just two against the Carolina Panthers. After Sunday’s win, Golladay wasn’t in the locker room and his locker was cleaned out. The Giants were playing at home.
