Kenny Golladay is expected to be released by the New York Giants, ending a miserable two years on the team.

Reports on Tuesday said Golladay would be released on the first day of the league year in mid-March, saving the Giants $6.7million against their salary cap.

The one-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was a big free agent signing ahead of the 2021 season but never rediscovered his best form.

After being limited to five games in his final season with the Detroit Lions, injuries have again hampered Golladay in New York.

He played in 14 games in his first season but failed to catch a single touchdown pass.

Golladay did have a sole TD in 2022, yet he finished the year with only six receptions having lost his place in the Giants' rotation.

The 29-year-old will head to free agency with his stock considerably lower than when he was last on the market two years ago.
