Wide receiver Kenny Golladay was informed he will be released by the New York Giants on Tuesday, ending the failed free agency experiment after two seasons and 43 total receptions.

Golladay, 29, won’t be cut until the new league year begins on March 15, which saves the Giants nearly $7 million.

Golladay received a $4.5 million bonus in February and cost the Giants a total of $40.4 million for two seasons.

He posted six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown in 12 games in 2022, the second season of a four-year, $72 million deal he signed when former general manager Dave Gettleman was building the roster in 2021.

But Golladay fought knee issues and never found a consistent role under coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen.
