How about Agnew as a receiver? He could be a nice down field threat.

You have to throw downfield to have a downfield threat.

Lol. Maybe an open field threat is the better term.. Get him some space.

I was being facetious. Guess it didn't translate to text.

I agree that they went downfield much more than last season.

You pretty much had two with two 1000 yard WRs. Jones had 1100 on way less targets than most WRs who get 1100. Really great ypc. 9 tds. Tate a yac and missed tackle mission. Golladay showed good things as rookie even after missing many games

Always can use depth and tj jones is restricted free agent. Can bring him back

De, dt, cb, rb bigger priorities. Olb if whitehead leaves

Looking At Possible Detroit Lions Free Agent Targets: Guard Andrew Norwell.
DLP

Signing Andrew Norwell should be to top priority in free agency for the Lions. Signing Norwell and letting Travis Swanson leave in free agency would make the Lions offensive line look like Taylor Decker at left tackle, Andrew Norwell at left guard, Graham Glasgow at center, TJ Lang at right guard and Rick Wagner at right tackle. On paper, that is a top offensive line in the league.

I don't like the idea of tagging him. This was his prove it year and he disappeared for most of the season. Had a few big games against some of the worst LT's in the game.

Their options arenít very good unfortunately, they may have to tag him. Otherwise they have to roll the dice on a free agent (not a good selection this year) or go with a rookie, I donít think either provides an immediate upgrade.

The tag is nice because itís only a one year commitment, they can evaluate how he does next season (while hopefully healthier), then let him go if heís not worth it.

The only bad move IMO would be re-signing him to a big multi-year contract.
