One of the first key decisions made by Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes was not placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Kenny Golladay this past offseason.
During the 2019 season, the talented wideout emerged as a deep-threat receiving option for Detroit’s offense, as he recorded 65 receptions for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Last season, the ex-Lion was limited to only five games, as he dealt with hamstring and hip flexor injuries. He finished a disappointing season with 20 receptions for 338 yards and two touchdowns.
The New York Giants decided to make Golladay a substantial free agent offer and eventually landed his services. New York and the 27-year-old agreed to a four-year, $72 million contract, with $40 million in guaranteed money.
