Kenny Golladay sees bright future with Joe Judge; Daniel Jones 'very excited'
The Giants didn't have Kenny Golladay at hello, but once the two sides got to know each other a little it, they quickly agreed a partnership would benefit both sides.
"Just hearing the vision that coach Joe Judge had and (coordinator) Jason Garrett had as far as the offense, that had me right there," Golladay said on a Saturday evening Zoom call. "And just walking around the building, everybody greeting me and with them pretty much telling me that they wanted me here and I'm expressing the same thing. It was kind of like a no-brainer and I'm glad it worked out."
So are the Giants, who signed the productive and accomplished wide receiver today to successfully complete a three-day courtship. They added a player whose presence improves their aerial attack and their scoring potential.
Perhaps no player will benefit from Golladay's arrival more than quarterback Daniel Jones, who reached out to the player destined to become one of his favorite targets.
"He just said how good of a player that he thought I was, and I pretty much said the same thing about him," Golladay said. "He also just said, 'We're trying to do something great here,' and that's what I'm all about.
"He's still kind of fresh in the league a little bit and I kind of want to grow with him. I'm still growing as a player and I feel like me and him can do some good things. We haven't gotten on the practice field yet, but me and him both are very excited."
Jones certainly is.
"I'm very excited to have Kenny," Jones said in a text. "He's been a big time playmaker in this league. When we spoke, he was interested in the culture we have in the building and the mindset of the team. I think he had heard it from coaches but wanted to hear how we saw it as players and how much we believed in it. I think finding the right fit in that sense was important to him. I can't wait to get out on the field and get to work with him."
With good reason. At 6-4 and 214 pounds, Golladay adds size and physicality to the Giants' offense. He also brings a track record of success from his four seasons with the Detroit Lions.
