Bears Push To Ink Detroit Lions FA Wide Out Kenny Golladay

Videos by OutKick

The Chicago Bears have had an up and down week in free agency, but they could still make up for some misses if they can land Detroit Lions free agent wide out Kenny Golladay.

Reports say that the Bears offered Golladay a deal worth $11 or $12 million, though the receiver is looking for $18.5 million per season.

Adding Golladay would give the Bears perhaps the best 1-2 WR punch in the NFC, as Golladay would then pair up with Allen Robinson.

Of course, the Bears might also be looking to add a big name wide out because of who will be throwing him the ball. Despite searching for a big name quarterback like Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson, Chicago had to settle for signing former Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton last week. A receiver like Golladay might appease an otherwise frustrated fan base.

Golladay has apparently been talking to a number of teams ever since the Lions declined to use the franchise tag on him. He’s speaking to the New York Giants on Friday, and also is getting interest from the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens.
