Most Likely Kenny Golladay Free Agent Destinations
A big-bodied athletic wide receiver that joined the Detroit Lions just two seasons after Calvin Johnson retired, Kenny Golladay has always had big shoes to fill.
He's been no Megatron, but a pair of 1,000-yard seasons and totals of 3,068 yards, 183 receptions and 21 touchdowns over 47 games in Detroit has proven that he's got what it takes to be a WR1 at the NFL level.
He's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, however, and plenty of teams will likely be interested in his services, even after an injury-plagued 2020 season.
With that in mind, here are the most likely free agent destinations for Golladay.
3. Chicago Bears
Golladay staying in the NFC North might bother Lions fans, but the Chicago Bears could be losing a top wideout of their own. Allen Robinson is set to be an unrestricted free agent, and if he walks then the Bears simply can't afford to not add a high-end wide receiver. Darnell Mooney (61 receptions) and Anthony Miller (49 receptions) showed promise in 2020, but neither look to be the high-end playmaker that Golladay or Robinson are. Whether it's Mitchell Trubisky, Nick Foles or a new face at QB in 2020, the Bears need to put their quarterback in a position to succeed, and that starts with giving him a threat on the outside.
2. Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions are drafting in the top-10 again in 2020, but this isn't necessarily a team in a full rebuild. Matthew Stafford is still just 32 years old and playing some of the best football of his career. If the Lions and whoever they hire as their new head coach believe this team can be competitive in the short to medium-term, expect them to make a big push to keep Golladay as a focal point of this offense.
1. Indianapolis Colts
It remains to be seen what will happen with the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback position this offseason, with both Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett becoming unrestricted free agents. Whoever they have under center, however, could use some help. T.Y. Hilton just doesn't seem to be the top wideout he once was, and while there are plenty of promising youngsters in the Colts' WR room, there's no true WR1. A skill-position group led by Jonathan Taylor and Golladay would make this a landing spot that any incoming QB would be lucky to have.
