Notes: Patricia declines to comment on Kenny Golladay’s contract situation

The subject was brought up after Kenny posted a not-so-subtle comment on social media about getting paid.

The mums-the-word stance on Kenny Golladay’s contract situation continues as Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia avoided commenting during Thursday’s media session.

The star receiver, who is due for an extension, posted a not-so-subtle post on Instagram Sunday with the caption, “This s*** gone cost you!” — presumably to remind the Lions that they’ll need to cough up some dough to keep him in Detroit, though we’re not detectives here at POD.

Patricia was asked specifically about the post on Thursday and where things stand.

“I never comment on any individual players or coaches contractual situations, I just don’t think that’s right,” Patricia said. “I mean, Kenny’s a phenomenal player. He had some unbelievable plays in the game I think that were great. I think he’s a great part of our team. He’s dynamic, I love being around him, and I love coaching him,.”

And like any coach on the podium does, quickly returned focus to matters at hand this week.

“Other than that, we’re just, week by week getting ready for the opponent. I don’t want to get into anything outside of that,” Patricia said.


Yesterday, Hamza asked if you’d rather pay Golladay or Tracy Walker, you can find that discussion and poll here.

And onto the rest of your notes.

  • You still have a chance to sit next to Barry Sanders at a game. Er, kind of.
