Trade Number 3: The Lions give up a first-round pick for Davante Adams

Let's remember, when Davante Adams was traded to the Raiders, Green Bay was given a first and a second-round pick. Now, Adams is still as productive as ever and the Raiders could desire a similar package. If Detroit was forced to give up a first, then maybe it would look like this.

Should Detroit continue their run and ultimately not just win the NFC North, but make it further into the postseason, then that pick becomes a very late selection for the Raiders. It would be a whole lot easier to give up a first if you knew the Lions were going to have a legitimate shot at a Super Bowl.

And again, imagine this offense with Adams and Williams on the outside, with Amon-Ra St. Brown in the slot. It would be pure magic through the air, and you'd have to remember that the Lions still have a fantastic one-two punch in the back field between Montgomery and Gibbs.

Would the Lions really entertain going after Adams, in the end? Maybe. It certainly makes sense, and Detroit fans would have a whole lot to cheer about for a few years, at least.
