CINCINNATI – The star-wide recipient Kenny Golladay continues to weigh his options in the free agency.
The 27-year-old visits the Giants on Friday.
New York isn’t the only team that cares about Golladay. The bears reportedly offered him a $ 12 million one-year contract. The Bengals also made him a year-round offer earlier this week.
The Pro Bowler is hoping to make big bucks, though the free agent market for broad recipients is clearly declining this off-season.
“Golladay is looking for a contract worth in the range of $ 18.5 million a year.” Mike Florio reported on Friday.

That’s a reasonable number on the surface, but it’s hard to imagine he has nearly $ 19 million in the free hand at this point.
Will Fuller had to settle for a $ 10 million one-year deal with Miami.
If Golladay decides to sign a one-year contract, the Bengals should make him an offer of $ 13-14 million with some incentives that could move him closer to his $ 18.5 million goal. You could too make him a multi-year offer in the $ 40 million range if he wants more security.
Brian Callahan, Bengals offensive coordinator, was in Detroit with Golladay in 2017. It sounds like he would like to reunite with Star Wide Out.
“We had just drawn him in from our northern Illinois on the third round. We had expectations that he would be productive,” Callahan said on Friday. “In the past few years he has exceeded our expectations when we were originally there. We thought he was going to be a big, strong receiver and his production has picked up and played pretty strong over time. He got off to a good start in his career. I really enjoyed having him when I was in Detroit. He’s a good recipient. He’s somewhere in the world trying to figure out what his future holds and I wish him the best of luck. ”
Could the Bengals be the lucky ones to land Golladay? He would be a great addition to a team that has invested a lot of its resources in defense so far this off-season.
