Thursday open thread: Should the Lions extend Kenny Golladay this offseason?

Is Golladay going to cash in with the Lions?

Way back in September I asked you all if Kenny Golladay was a top-five receiver in the NFL.

Here’s are the results of that poll:

This was obviously well before we all knew Golladay was going to miss a large part of the season with hamstring and hip injuries.

So, given all that we know now, let’s get to today’s question of the day:

Should the Lions extend Kenny Golladay this offseason?

My answer: No.

Right now, Spotrac has Golladay’s estimated market value at $19 million a year. And that is simply way too expensive for a 27-year-old receiver coming off a season with multiple injuries. While it’s unclear if Golladay is actually asking for that much, the fact that Detroit couldn’t come to an agreement with him during or before the 2020 season suggests that’s probably around the ballpark he’s asking for.

The Lions absolutely need to find wide receiver help this offseason, but with a new GM and coach coming in, I don’t think Golladay will be in the plans.

Your turn.
