Former Detroit Lions receiver Kenny Golladay on Saturday reached an agreement with the New York Giants on a four-year, $72 million deal.
The deal can be worth up to $76 million and includes $40 million guaranteed, the source said.
It didn't happen without a visit first. The Giants had questions for Golladay about the way his tenure in Detroit ended and the hip injury that forced him to miss the final nine games of the 2020 season. He eased their concerns during meetings that lasted all day Friday, sources told ESPN.
The 27-year-old Golladay remained in New York after the visit ended, while he passed one last medical hurdle and the final details of the massive deal were negotiated, sources said. It allowed him to sign at his preferred landing spot and gave the Giants—most notably quarterback Daniel Jones—the No. 1 receiver they desperately needed
A third-round pick by the Lions out of Northern Illinois in 2017, Golladay played in 47 games for Detroit, making 183 catches for 3,068 yards and 21 touchdowns. His ability to make contested catches down the field is something the Giants needed.
