Over on our Twitter account, we did a film review on Markus Golden’s sack totals. It wasn’t pretty. Golden only WON on the edge 4 times last year in his 13 (including half sacks) times getting to the QB. He stacked up numbers cleaning up and getting to the QB unblocked. He didn’t deserve a long term deal and we should all be happy the Giants didn’t give him one.
Go ahead and watch every single sack and see how unimpressive they were below:
The Giants did the right thing by not handing Golden a huge contract. He is not and never was worth $8M a year Giants fans wanted the team to give him.
