Last season, he was supported by two productive veterans: Marvin Jones on the outside and Danny Amendola in the slot. Detroit also has an intriguing speed option in Marvin Hall under contract for 2020.

Case in point, Amendola is a free agent and Jones finished the season on injured reserve for the second year in a row. Jones also represents less than $3 million in dead money in 2020 should the Lions look to move on.
