WXYZ — Kenny Golladay is feeling the holiday spirit, and is hoping the Lions are also in the giving mood when it comes time for a new contract sometime soon.
Golladay is in the final year of his rookie contract, a 3-year deal worth $3.19 million, signed back in 2017.
Now, the receiver has bloomed into one of Matthew Stafford's most reliable targets, and is hoping the Lions will see his value in inking him to a long term deal.
The idea of staying in Detroit is one that Golladay says is something he wants.
"I'm a loyal person, I wouldn't mind being here for the rest of my career," Golladay said.
Golladay and Lions legend Barry Sanders are teaming up with Pepsi to help fans enjoy the ultimate game day experience at home this season.
In addition to the “Happy Golladay” campaign, the unique Detroit fan-portal - MadeForLionsWatching.com - which is part of the larger “Made for Football Watching” campaign spotlighting and celebrating the “elite” football watchers around the country, will hold downloadable content like virtual backgrounds, a fun ‘excuse generator’ and local team-specific food and beverage recipes to enjoy throughout this season!
There's also a giveaway at the website where fans can enter to win prizes, such as a 'Happy Golladays' ugly sweater, gift card, and even a holiday meal with Golladay.
Fans can also look out for limited time branded Lions 12-pack cases of Pepsi, Pepsi Zero Sugar and Diet Pepsi cans.
