2. WR Davante Adams

Since Adams conveyed his frustration after the Raiders' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, and it wasn't the first time he'd done so along that line in recent months, trade speculation has naturally swirled around him. The Lions have even landed on a couple lists of potential landing spots for him.

Adams is still one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. His contract, a five-year, $140 million he signed with the Raiders when they acquired him from the Green Bay Packers in 2022, is definitely a thing for any team that may have interest in acquiring him. But the guaranteed salary in the deal ends after 2024, and in 2025 there's a viable out. So below the surface of a big contract is just not that daunting in a certain light, and Adams has shown no signs of decline as he crosses into his 30's.

Trading for Adams would be plenty costly of course, probably at least one first-round pick among multiple (at least two) draft picks and maybe a player too. But for the Lions, in a show they mean business this year and next year for sure, could make that kind of all-in move and worry about the draft capital they gave up later.
