Kenny Golladay was “pretty sure” he would have a contract extension before the start of the 2020 season, but as we know, that did not happen and now a quarter of the season is in the books and he still does not have a long-term deal with the Detroit Lions.
Or does he?
On Friday, Golladay spoke to Lions’ beat writers and, of course, he was asked about the status of a potential extension.
From Detroit Free Press:
“I don’t think nothing came out yet,” Golladay said with a smile.
Does that mean news will be coming out soon?
“Uhhhh, I don’t know,” a still-smiling Golladay said.
Golladay added that he is not giving the Lions a deadline to get a deal done and that he is willing to continue to negotiate through the season if that is what it takes.
“I’m going to just play the season and if a contract gets done, it gets done,” he said. “And I don’t care if it takes till the end of the season, then it takes till the end of the season. If it doesn’t happen, then it doesn’t happen. Just keep moving forward. Only thing I can really control right now is my play on the field and the energy I bring on the field every day.”
Nation, is Lions’ GM Bob Quinn playing with fire by waiting this long to give Golladay the extension he has earned? Could Golladay eventually get fed up and decide to hit free agency when the season ends?
