One reason the New York Giants’ compensation cap was so messed up when new head supervisor Joe Schoen took over recently, was a direct result of the great pay rates they are paying their wide beneficiaries.
This would be OK assuming they were getting a value for their money, yet that is a long way from the case. The Giants are paying 14 players a sum of $42.4 million driven by Kenny Golladay, whose $21.1 million cap hit represents half of that number.
Golladay is trailed by Sterling Shepard at $6.3 million, Kadarius Toney ($3.1 million) and Darius Slayton ($2.6 million), youngster Wan’Dale Robinson ($1.4 million), and Richie James ($1.06 million).
Last year, the Giants’ main three recipients were tight end Evan Engram (46 gatherings) and running backs Saquon Barley and Devontae Booker with 41 and 40 gets, separately. Engram and Booker are no longer with the Giants.
Golladay, Shepard, Toney, and Slayton consolidated for only 29 beginnings, 138 gatherings, 1,646 yards, and just three scores in 2021.
The greater part of the other Giants’ units is positioned among the association’s most reduced compensation all-inclusive. The Giants’ cautious line is positioned 6th in the NFL and the most generously compensated unit on the program at more than $48 million.
