I have made it pretty clear about my feelings about spending too much capital (either cap or draft) on the wide receiver position but the fact of the matter is that you cannot completely ignore the position.
There is no team in the league that needs competent wide receivers as the Detroit Lions do and you can bet they will be looking to add some talent in the offseason. Luckily for the Lions, there will be plenty of wide receiver talent available this coming offseason.
Here are 5 soon to be free agents the Lions could consider.
Note: Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams was left off this list because there is zero chance he signs with the Lions.
Chris Godwin (currently injured)
Michael Gallup (currently injured)
Nation, which of these wide receivers would you target if you were Lions GM Brad Holmes? Which ones would you avoid?
