Kenny Golladay deserves at least a look from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Kenny Golladay saw his 2020 season cut short by a hip flexor strain he sustained against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8. He finished the year with 20 receptions for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Nevertheless, he’s going to be one of the most coveted wide receivers in free agency.
Originally a third-round pick in 2017, Golladay hauled in 135 receptions for 2,253 yards and 16 touchdowns from 2018 to 2019. Moreover, he earned a Pro Bowl designation in 2019. Had he not gotten injured this past season, he would’ve likely had his third 1,000-yard-plus season.
The Jaguars didn’t have a 1,000-yard receiver in 2020. The closest to reach the mark was D.J. Chark Jr., who caught 53 passes for 796 yards and five touchdowns. The team’s instability at the quarterback position surely played a factor in their wide receivers’ lack of production. That doesn’t mean they shouldn’t bring Golladay. In fact, the team could move on from Keelan Cole and bring in the Northern Ilinois standout.
After all, this Jacksonville team is set to have $77.61 million in cap space and should have no problem making a competitive offer to Golladay. They could pay him and still have enough money to add other free agents.
