The Lions have finally made a decision on wideout Kenny Golladay.
At a price tag near $16.5 million, the organization has decided not to place the franchise tag on him.
“I would be very surprised if he’s actually available,” NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport had previously reported.
He continued, “Another strong franchise-tag candidate. I know they had talks last year about a long-term extension. Did not happen. They’re going to try again this year, but expect him to be tagged if they don’t get a deal.”
In 2019, Golladay emerged as one of the league's best deep-threat receiving options.
