New York Giants sign several new players in free agency
The New York Giants are making moves this spring with some big signings in free agency.
The Giants wasted no time trying to add some missing pieces to the team. Offensively the team signed Kenny Golladay.
“We haven’t even stepped on the practice field yet. I know one thing for sure, I’m going to go out there and do all I can to help this offense go,” Golladay says. “Whenever they need me, I’m going to be there to pretty much make a play.”
The 6-foot-four, 214-pound wide receiver spent the last four seasons in Detroit. In the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Golladay recorded more than 2,000 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.
He will certainly be a favorite target for Daniel Jones, in fact, Golladay says the quarterback has already reached out.
“He just said how good of a player that he thought I was. And I pretty much said the same thing about him,” Golladay says. “He also just said, ‘We’re trying to do something great here’ and that’s what I’m all about.”
The Giants also signed Kyle Rudolph. The tight end spent the last decade in Minnesota – a veteran presence and threat when it comes to both blocking and receiving. Rudolph says that he is excited to work with Evan Engram.
“Knowing that I could certainly still help a football team, whether it be on first down and second down, third down, in the red zone. I really look forward to working with Evan and I think we can complement each other very well,” Rudolph says. “Obviously, he does things that I can’t even imagine of doing.”
And on defense, the Giants added Adoree Jackson. The former Titans cornerback is expected to bolster the team’s defense, along with James Bradberry, Jabrill Peppers and Logan Ryan.
“I just want to say they’re getting a team player. They’re getting somebody who’s going to be compatible with what the guys want and what the coaches want, who’s going to go out there and do his job,” Jackson says. “Bring a lot of fun, try to bring some excitement.”
The NFL draft is on April 29.
