“Another strong franchise tag candidate,” Rapoport said of Golladay. “I know they had talks last year about a long-term extension. Did not happen. Going to try again this year. But expect him to be tagged if they don’t get a deal.”
Golladay played in just five games in 2020 due to injury, generating 338 yards and two TDs on 20 catches. The injury-plagued season came off back-to-back 1,000-plus-yard seasons, including an NFL-high 11 touchdown receptions in 2019, his lone Pro Bowl year.
The receiver’s future is the second big decision new Lions general manager Brad Holmes will make after agreeing to trade Matthew Stafford.
