Kenny Golladay up next for a new deal in Detroit

Mike Florio and Chris Simms look at whether the Lions have enough playmakers on both sides of the ball going into 2020 as the team tries to get back to the playoffs.

On Tuesday, Lions tackle Taylor Decker got his new contract. Soon, Lions receiver Kenny Golladay likely will be joining him.

Per a league source, the Lions are closing in on an extension with the fourth-year receiver.

Golladay has made it clear that he wants a new contract before the season begins. To make that happen, he hasn’t held out or, as far as anyone knows, held in.

Golladay has a pair of 1,000-yard receiving seasons, with a career-high of 1,190 yards in 2019, along with 11 touchdowns.

A third-round pick in 2017, eleven receivers were drafted that year before Golladay.
