The New York Giants didn’t enter the free agency fray immediately, instead prioritizing the retention of Leonard Williams. However, General Manager Dave Gettleman did manage to land the definitive WR1 in the 2021 Free Agent class. With Allen Robinson and Chris Godwin returning to their respective teams via Franchise Tag and Juju Smith-Schuster opting to remain in Pittsburgh at a discounted rate, it was Kenny Golladay who became the most sought after wide receiver available. Despite only playing five games due to injury in 2020, Golladay landed a 4-year $72 million deal with $40 million guaranteed making him they 7th highest paid wideout in the league on a yearly average basis.
The Arizona Cardinals Front Office has been busy. After the relatively young Cardinals team fizzled mid-way thru the 2020 NFL Season and came up just a little short of making the playoffs last year, general manager Steve Keim and head coach Kliff Kingsbury made it a point to add some veteran leadership with quite the list of accolades.
Of course the Cardinals weren’t able to retain everyone. Notable players such as Kenyan Drake (LVR), Patrick Peterson (MIN) and Haason Reddick (CAR) are no longer in town.
