It was originally thought that New York Giants top-tier wide receiver Kenny Golladay loudly and somewhat controversially vented frustrations toward quarterback Daniel Jones during last Thursday's heartbreaking 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team. However, it was later confirmed that Golladay, one of the club's biggest free-agent acquisitions of the offseason, was directing his anger toward offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
Much like head coach Joe Judge earlier in the week, Garrett downplayed the situation when speaking with reporters Thursday about this Sunday's home matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.
"He and I had a good visit after the game," Garrett said of Golladay, per Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com. "Was not an issue at all going forward. There’s always better ways to handle things as you go forward, better ways to communicate. But it wasn’t a big deal to me and to our team at all."
Garrett did, however, respond he was "not going to keep talking about this" when asked several other questions about the incident that generated headlines and discussions among media members and fans.
"Kenny got different opportunities in the game and did a good job with some of them. And a couple of them we didn’t convert on. We’ve addressed it and we’ve moved on," Garrett added.
Thus far this season, Golladay has caught only seven of 14 passes for 102 yards with zero touchdowns, which is significantly below the worth of the reported four-year, $72 million contract he signed with the Giants last March. In fairness to Garrett and company, Golladay trails only Sterling Shepard in targets among Giants players after two weeks of action.
