Markus Golden Unlikely To Return To Giants

Free-agent linebacker Markus Golden is the only player on the open market that had double-digit sacks in 2019. Golden recorded 10 sacks in 16 games last year and was sixth in the league with 27 quarterback hits while being tied for 14th with 13 tackles for a loss. He was believed to be asking for $10 million per season, according to a source, but he won't be getting that now. It's unlikely that New York will re-sign Golden after already adding Kyle Fackrell for one year and $4.6 million. The Giants are likely to add a low-priced veteran later on as they look to boost their pass rush. Golden earned $3.75 million last year and made another $1 million for reaching 10 sacks. The 29-year-old had a good season in 2019, but fantasy owners in IDP leagues shouldn't be expecting a repeat necessarily.

Markus Golden Could Test Free Agency

New York Giants impending free-agent linebacker Markus Golden has interest in re-signing with the Giants, but he will also endeavor to test the free-agent market, according to a source. Golden led the Giants with 10 sacks in the 2019 season, his first with the G-Men. However, aside from a career-high 12.5-sack season in his second year in the league in 2016 with Arizona, Golden had been a disappointment in his three other seasons in the desert after being drafted in the second round. The soon-to-be 29-year-old had a career-high 72 total tackles (37 solo) and one fumble recovery last season. You certainly shouldn't expect him to be on the IDP map again in 2020.
