Kenny Golladay had a chance to play a big part in the New York Giants’ 23–16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He dropped it.

With Big Blue trailing by seven points in the fourth quarter, Daniel Jones beat Golladey by numbers on third down, leaving a run for the first down, but the high-paid latline flopped the ball.

“I missed one opportunity, I would like to get it back,” Golladay said in the team’s transcript. “I just didn’t watch the whole thing. I was just trying to play for the team and get on the field. I was running before I really got the ball. That’s pretty much all there was. It doesn’t happen, especially when 8 is doing everything he can to get the ball and help us win the football game. third loss, and it can’t be.”

Playing just two snaps in week 2, Golladay hit 22 of 67 reps on Sunday as both Van’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toni were inactive. Golladay saw three targets with zero catches.

Golladay had a potential big game in the first half — a catch in the third and 13th that could have put the Giants in field goal distance late in the second quarter — nullified by a suspected pass interference call when the Cowboys filed corner Trevon Diggs. and New York wide receiver Sterling Shepard clashed.

For a player under the microscope in New York, a fall in the fourth quarter summed up his time at Big Blue.

“It is very difficult. I kick myself for it,” he said. “I would definitely like to have it back.”

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said on Monday that the Giants could try to trade Golladey if things don’t improve, but that would require New York to take a large chunk of his contract.

A four-year, $72 million deal with former general manager Dave Gettleman, signed last year, was a disaster for New York. In three games this season, he twice caught five targets for 22 yards. In 2021, Golladay earned 521 yards and never got a touchdown with 37 catches in 14 games.

Monday night’s results will not lead to an increase in Galladey’s inventory. And Shepard’s injury late in the competition could mean the Giants will need Golladey in 2022. If he gets another chance in New York, the big player won’t miss it.
