4 free agent wide receivers the Detroit Lions should avoid
2. Will Fuller
After missing at least five games each of the prior four seasons with the Houston Texans, Fuller played just two games last season for the Miami Dolphins due to a finger injury. Miami did not get any return on their one-year, $10 million investment in the former first-round pick (four catches for 26 yards).
As a certified deep threat when healthy (nearly 15 yards a catch over his time with the Texans), Fuller definitely fits a need for the Lions. And coming off the season he just had, he’s not in a position to be choosy with whatever free agent offers come his way. A one-year deal for half what the Dolphins gave him seems reasonable, and some teams may not want to even go there.
If the Lions are going to sign a relatively cheap deep threat in free agency, it’s better if it’s a move to re-sign Reynolds than pay much attention to Fuller. Reynolds has built-in chemistry with Jared Goff, and he’s also not an injury waiting to happen.
