I am a little shocked that we are 4 weeks in and there’s been no new contract for KG. 6 weeks ago it was reported that they were closing in on a new contract but then silence. What gives?.. this can’t be a good sign.
Suddenly I have a bunch of questions.
Is KG holding out to see if Stafford is back in 2021?
Is KG holding out to see if MP returns?
Is KG hoping to test FA?
Is KG’s asking price too high?
Did MO piss off another player?
Will Bob Q. Trade KG for peanuts mid season?
Will the Lions be forced to tag him?
Should they tag him?
Do you think this contract extension will get done or will BQ fail to resign another one of his better draft picks?
I don’t see Golladay being extended right now. The team is in turmoil and besides, Golladay has 2 good season. I would have the owner put the breaks on the regime from signing anybody else and take a wait and see approach
We talked about this at the time, you were reading a lot into comments that were pretty open ended… Contract talks were cold then as they are now. If it were me, I’d franchise him next year and evaluate in 2022 if I want to sign a 29 year old big WR that’s had hammy issues the last 2 years.
The only problem with that is what if he finishes this year strong and has a monster season the following year. Do we franchise him again at a huge number? Let him walk after big seasons? Kinda feels like we’re saying we’re done with him in two years.
That’s not a problem, if he performs like a top receiver then he gets paid like one… If he gets hurt or starts breaking down as big receivers tend to do after 30, we’re not saddled with a 5 year deal… Remember CJ???
If he has two big years what will he be asking for per year then? Especially coming off the tag. And we’re gonna wait another year to lock him up but you don’t want to get saddled with the bad years? That’s why you do it now. Give him $50 mil guaranteed on a five or six year deal at 19 per and it’s essentially a two year deal with team opt outs after that. If he performs he continues to get paid as a top receiver if not it’s easy to cut bait with minimal damage after only a couple years.
This is actually one area (probably the only area) where I’m on the same page with goldenlions. It might be cathartic to fire them both immediately, but you don’t really gain anything. (Maybe the owner gains some credibility with fans.) If anything, I’d rather force MP to play out this season, make him show up every day to a team that’s tuned him out, go through the motions of pretending anyone cares what he has to say, trot him out there to face the press loss after loss after loss to field questions he can’t answer and look like even more of a tool. THAT’S catharsis.
In all seriousness, I don’t care at this point when they get fired. I just want the team to lose every remaining game to improve draft position for the next regime, maybe have an actual shot at the next franchise QB.
