Will Holmes and the Lions make a move?
While there is always risk with any trade a team makes, if Holmes is serious about wanting to put the most competitive Lions team on the field in 2021, trading for Beckham probably puts him in the best position to do so.
The price to acquire Beckham may not be too high considering one of the game’s best-ever wide receivers in Julio Jones was just traded (along with a sixth-rounder) to the Tennessee Titans for a second and fourth-round pick.
A stud receiver coming off a terrible injury on a team he just doesn’t seem to mesh well with could be had at a fairly modest price, especially if you consider John Dorsey, the former general manager for Cleveland Browns, is now with the Lions’ front office.
Odell Beckham is still one of the premier receivers in the league. And with fewer mouths to feed in this Detroit Lions’ passing offense, we could see Beckham find that greatness he was known for with the New York Giants. Brad Holmes just has to pull the trigger.
