Detroit Lions receiver situation
Onto reason three, the Detroit Lions have zero receivers signed to contracts after this season.
We don’t have to be rocket scientists to figure out that no matter how good any quarterback is that they need more than a couple of tight ends to throw to.
Kenny Golladay is the core of the unit going forward that the Detroit Lions can build around.
Marvin Jones is aging, 30, and has missed parts of the last couple of seasons due to injury. Amendola is on a one-year deal at 34-years-old.
Geronimo Allison was just signed to compete for the fourth roster spot, he provides insurance for Jones or Amendola if he makes the final 53-man roster but he is also on a one-year deal.
The Detroit Lions need a go-to guy and something for their offense to keep as a constant after 2020. Kerryon Johnson, the Lions starting running back when healthy, is only under contract until 2021 and has yet to start more than seven games in either of his two NFL seasons.
The Detroit Lions need to find some consistency and they need to start by locking up their most productive player.
