The Detroit Lions came into the 2020 season with plenty of business to attend to in terms of contract extensions, but they have only had modest gains in that department.
Detroit managed to lock up offensive tackle Taylor Decker, who’s having a career year. They also wanted to get a deal done with Kenny Golladay, but that hasn’t happened yet, which has led to plenty of questions about the wideout’s future with the team.
Speaking on Friday, Golladay was asked where his contract situation stands as of right now and was pretty coy with regards to the answer. As he said, there is nothing that has been released that he knows of at the moment, and he didn’t know of anything coming down the pipe.

Should we expect something soon? “Uhh, I don’t know.”
He seemed to be playing coy.

He had some huge games last season, and four times Golladay has gone well over 100 yards in a game catching the ball for the Lions. His ball skills down field on deep passes are a big reason why.
With 2,730 yards and 19 touchdowns thus far in his career coming into the 2020 season on the field, Golladay looks like an obvious top dog in Detroit for the foreseeable future with Matthew Stafford tossing him the rock. He’s proven that to be the case in 2020 itself with 119 yards and 2 scores in spite of missing …read more
