  Lions | Detroit interested in Micah Parsons    Fri Mar 26, 06:01 PM

Penn State LB Micah Parsons said he has talked with the Detroit Lions several times during the pre-draft process.

Footballguys view: Parsons certainly physically fits the bill as a top 10 pick, but there are some character concerns that could cast a shadow on his draft stock. Head coach Dan Campbell named Luke Kuechly, Brian Urlacher, and Lance Briggs as the kind of "core foundation" players as a possible tipoff that the team is looking at Parsons with the #7 pick.

Free-agent WR Kalif Raymond (Titans) signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Tuesday, March 23, according to his agency EnterSports Management. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Raymond is a small but lightning quick receiver who can also contribute as a return man. He's had problems with drops in the past and is no lock for the 53-man roster.

  Lions | Breshad Perriman, Detroit make it official    Mon Mar 22, 07:31 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Breshad Perriman (Jets) officially signed a one-year contract worth a reported $2.5 million Monday, March 22.

Footballguys view: Perriman has talent when healthy, but staying healthy has been a problem for him during his pro career. It's cool that he's with the Lions because that's where his dad, Brett Perriman, played like a Pro Bowl receiver back in the day. The Lions don't have a ton at the wide receiver position so Perriman could have a fantasy relevant role as a flex play.

Impending free-agent RB Jamaal Williams (Packers) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth up to $7.5 million with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, March 16.

Footballguys view: With Aaron Jones staying with the Packers, Williams knew it was time to move on. He lands in the division with the Lions, and Williams gives the team an all-purpose back to work in a RBBC with D'Andre Swift.

  Lions | Josh Hill signs with Detroit    Sat Mar 13, 12:15 PM

Free agent TE Josh Hill (Saints) on Saturday, March 13, signed with the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Hill has always been a nice reserve for the Saints and he's a better receiver than some would give him credit for. With the Lions, Hill will work behind T.J. Hockenson and give new QB Jared Goff a reliable target and blocker when on the field.

  Lions | Justin Coleman officially released    Fri Mar 12, 04:07 PM

Detroit Lions CB Justin Coleman was released Friday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Coleman was once considered one of the best slot corners in the league. His four-year, 36 million dollar deal was a bust as the Lions will now have a little over six million of dead cap taken up by Coleman.

  Lions | Detroit releases Jesse James    Thu Mar 11, 09:51 PM

The Detroit Lions released TE Jesse James Thursday, March 11, according to a source.

Footballguys view: James felt like an overpay at nearly six million a year in 2019 and he only made it two years into the deal. The Lions will carry a dead cap charge of a little over two or four million depending on whether they designate him as a post-June 1 release, but it's still cheaper than his five million dollar price tag. 2020 UDFA Hunter Bryant could get more snaps in the wake of this move.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay won't see tag    Tue Mar 9, 12:25 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay will not be franchise tagged, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of a surprise as most thought the Lions would keep Golladay around on the tag - especially because Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola are going to be playing elsewhere in 2021. He played just five games in 2020, but Golladay will be the top wide receiver on the open market.

Detroit Lions QB Chase Daniel has been the focus of trade discussions with some teams in recent days in part because he is considered an ideal mentor for young quarterbacks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Lots of teams out there want a guy like Daniel on the roster. We'll see if the Lions move him as they don't really need a guy like him behind new starter Jared Goff.

  Lions | Jared Goff may be asked to rework deal    Sun Feb 28, 03:01 PM

Incoming Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff likely will be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because the team can create around $15 million if they rework the deal.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening. The Lions made the move to trade away Matthew Stafford and got Goff in the deal. It's not because they think he can be a franchise guy, but it's to see if he can thrive with a fresh start. Reworking his deal could get them cap space to add more talent, and they could set themselves up if they decide to move on from Goff in the next few years.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay could be trade option    Sun Feb 28, 02:44 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Kenny Golladay is a candidate for the franchise tag this offseason, but the team could look to trade him instead of keeping him if he is tagged, in the opinion of The Detroit News' Justin Rogers.

Footballguys view: Golladay would have a lot of interest if he hits the open market. No player likes to get tagged but Golladay is good enough to get teams to potentially trade for him. His future could go in a number of different directions this offseason.

  Lions | OC thinks T.J. Hockenson can improve    Sat Feb 20, 06:26 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson can play even better than he did this season, according to offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. 'I know he made the Pro Bowl and all that, but he can play even better and that was the encouraging part. I like what I saw on tape. He's a good football player,' Lynn said.

Footballguys view: Lynn is just stating the obvious here. Hockenson was supposed to be the next Travis Kelce when the Lions selected him in the top-10 of the 2019 NFL draft. Instead, he's produced more like a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs. We'll see if new QB Jared Goff and the new Lions offense under Lynn can get more out of Hockenson in 2021.

  Lions | Marvin Jones looking for contender    Fri Feb 19, 03:20 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones said he would prefer to join a Super Bowl contender this offseason but has not ruled out any team.

Footballguys view: This is what most free agents are looking for...that and bags of money. Jones came through for the Lions when called upon, but he may not get elite-level money. Instead, he's a solid no.2 receiver a quarterback can trust. We'll see if a team in contention wants to bring him on board.

  Lions | Jared Goff thrives on play-action    Mon Feb 15, 09:20 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff leads all quarterbacks with 376 completions and 5,176 yards passing off play-action since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Goff thrived in the play-action heavy West Coast offense under Sean McVay. That's from the Shanahan line of offenses, and features bootlegs and rollouts to give the quarterback time to throw. We'll see if the Lions implement a similar offense under new OC Anthony Lynn. They should run the ball a lot in 2021 (hello D'Andre Swift!), and that will naturally set up the play-action fakes that Goff can thrive on.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay expected to receive tag    Sun Feb 14, 05:27 PM

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Kenny Golladay is expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to sources.
