What’s the Status of the Lions Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Lions have a chance to make an impact in that department, hopefully to get a new weapon in 2020.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Lions receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Kenny Golladay (65-1,190-11), Marvin Jones (62-779-9), Danny Amendola (62-678-1).

Despite ranking last in the NFL in terms of average yards of separation (2.3) in 2019, the Lions’ wideouts did manage to earn the second-most receiving touchdowns (22). The lack of immediate need at the position — buttressed by last month’s re-signing of Amendola — means they will likely focus elsewhere in free agency and the draft. This also could bolster Detroit’s ability to extract the maximum value of the third overall pick via potential trade.
