If he actually hits the market, Kenny Golladay would be arguably the most sought-after wide receiver this offseason. Of course, fans may not get to see it play out that way because many believe the Detroit Lions will franchise tag the star wideout.

But if Detroit elects to let him walk, here are the three most likely destinations for the 27-year-old in free agency.

Kenny Golladay Franchise Tag

3. New York Jets

Whether it's Sam Darnold or someone like Zach Wilson at the helm, the New York Jets need to upgrade their skill-position group. Signing Kenny Golladay would do just that. He's not going to be cheap, but the New York Jets are one of a handful of teams with enough money to comfortably sign him to a monster deal.

2. Indianapolis Colts

Another team with cap space to burn, the Indianapolis Colts currently have the fifth-most space in the league. If they want to revitalize Carson Wentz's career, they'd be wise to use a good chunk of that on someone like Golladay. This skill-position group needs a true No. 1 wideout, especially with T.Y. Hilton potentially headed elsewhere. Golladay would form a nice duo with promising rookie WR Michael Pittman Jr.

1. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins need to upgrade this WR group if they want to get the best out of Tua Tagovailoa. Pairing Golladay with DeVante Parker would give the young QB two big-bodied WRs who excel at hauling in 50-50 balls. Add TE Mike Gesicki into the mix, and suddenly Miami's skill-position group starts to look pretty dangerous. By signing Golladay, the Dolphins would turn a weakness into a strength, and they have more than enough financial flexibility to make a deal like this work.
