Oddly enough, Brian Daboll is happy That Kenny Golladay is unhappy.
A day after Golladay groaned about only playing two snaps with the Giants last week, Dabor responded to wide receiver comments that it was a “fact” he should have taken on a bigger role. was asked to
“I’ve been in the NFL for a long time,” the Giants head coach said before practice Thursday. .
“I have a lot of respect for Kenny.
Golladay, who entered the second year of a four-year, $72 million contract, then became the first receiver of an individual drill in practice.
Dabor previously said he explained to Goladay why the Giants promoted former practice team receiver David Sills ahead of him against the Panthers, so the two may not be on the same page. But then Golladay said he and Davor “agreed to disagree” and were unsure of what they needed to do to get more playing time.
“Everyone in this building tells me that I do everything the right way and that I’m a professional in whatever I do,” Goladay said Wednesday. “So I’m a little confused.”
Daboll does not intend to raise any potential concerns about Golladay’s efforts or ability to open up. He emphasizes in communication that he keeps lines open, and part of his newly instilled culture is that draft status and contracts mean nothing when it comes to playing time. That’s it.
“We have private conversations,” Dabor said. “We’re having a good conversation. We’re in a good place.”
