Adam Schefter suggests Detroit Lions may not use franchise tag on Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay earned his first Pro-Bowl selection in 2019, hauling in 11 receiving touchdowns, good for 1st in the NFL. And prior to the start of last year, he reportedly turned down a massive extension offer.

While his future in Detroit has remained a hot topic of speculation in sports circles, an interesting development has arisen.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter stated on Get Up this morning that the Lions may actually not use their franchise tag on Golladay, which would be a reported one-year contract worth $16.4 million.

“Last year, these two sides had discussions about a long-term extension and Kenny Golladay turned down somewhere around $18, $19 million a year, depending on who you want to believe,” Schefter stated. “I think there’s a chance here, with a new regime in Detroit, that they could opt not to tag him at all, which would allow him to become one of the most coveted free agents out there.

“We’ll see whether the Lions do decide to use that tag by the 4 p.m. deadline on Tuesday. I think there’s a chance they won’t, a chance they won’t.”

Should Golladay indeed get more money elsewhere, he’d join the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones, Keenan Allen, Amari Cooper and Michael Thomas, all of whom are the top-paid wideouts in the NFL.

According to GM Brad Holmes, he wouldn’t have any issue waiting until the 11th hour to make the official decision on Golladay’s future in Detroit.

“We want to make the best decision for the Lions, and sometimes those decisions take a little bit longer,” Holmes said last week. “The great thing is that we have a process in place that we believe in, that we’ve been firm in. That process can go all the way up to when you have to make the decision. We’re not going to rush it.”
