There appears to be some uncertainty about Kenny Goladay’s role in Attack on Titan, and possibly their long-term plans.
The $72 million wide receiver started The Sunday pre-season final against the Jets despite of Most of the junior team players don’t play. He was targeted once and had no catch, and was only targeted four times in 51 shots during pre-season.
After Sunday’s game, head coach Brian Dabol – who said he started all his health receivers, frankly Cadarius Toni and Sterling Shepherd – was asked if Goldaday’s squad was in jeopardy.
“Look, all these recipients are competing,” Daboll said. “Kenny had a good camp. [General manager] Atmosphere [Schoen] And I’ll sit down and talk to everyone.”
Pressed not to commit to Golladay, Daboll replied, “I’m not going to commit to having anyone on the list or not being on the list until I sit down with Joe. We have a lot to talk about. That’s really not what I meant.”
While Daboll wasn’t saying Golladay could be fired, the lukewarm response about the player entering the second season of a four-year, $72 million contract is noteworthy, especially after the 28-year-old had a quiet training camp. However, with Schoen in cap management mode, Golladay’s roster should be safe. Cut off the Goladay Giants will cost an additional $4.3 million against the cap.
Golladay, Dave Gettleman’s signature, scored 37 goals on 76 goals from 521 yards and, remarkably, unmatched in his first season with the Giants last year. Injuries limited him to just five games in 2020, but the previous year, Golladay earned his first Pro Bowl gesture by capturing 65 passes for 1,190 yards and 11 league-leading touchdowns.
“He did a good job of what we asked him to do,” Daboll said of Golladay. “He played a few places for us. He kept learning to insult us, and I think he did a good job of learning it. I know the numbers and the gains and all that, I got all of that. He did what we asked him to.”
