Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Lions are closing in on an extension with WR Kenny Golladay.

However, Ian Rapoport says that talks are now set to begin between the Lions and Golladay and the two parties have yet open negotiations. As of now, Rapoport says no deal is imminent.

Detroit just locked up LT Taylor Decker to a six-year, $85 million extension on Tuesday.

Golladay previously made it clear he’s open to getting an extension done with the Lions this year, but it will likely take a pretty strong deal to prevent him from testing the open market in 2021. 

Golladay, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Lions back in 2017. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.19 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $750,000 for the 2020 season.

In 2019, Golladay appeared in all 16 games and caught 65 passes for 1,190 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns for the Lions.

We have him included in our Top 50 – 2021 Free Agents list.
