After starting the 2022 season with a 1-6 record, the Detroit Lions proceeded to stay the course, and they rallied to win eight of their final ten games to finish the season with a 9-8 record. Though that was not quite enough to get the Lions into the playoffs, many believed they were one of the top 10 teams in the league (or even better) by the time the season ended. Heading into the 2023 season, many are picking the Lions to win the NFC North, and some are picking them to make a run in the playoffs. But in order to make it all the way to the Super Bowl, there is a BOLD trade the Lions should consider making.
- The Lions rallied to win eight of their final ten games in 2022 season.
- The Lions are considered a top 10 team heading into the 2023 season, with some predicting a playoff run.
- Acquiring Quinnen Williams could significantly bolster the Lions' defense and make them Super Bowl contenders.
- Williams is reportedly seeking a mega-contract
- Acquiring Williams would come at a cost, but the potential rewards outweigh the risks for the Lions.
Why it Matters
The potential acquisition of Quinnen Williams could significantly bolster the Detroit Lions' defense and potentially make them serious contenders for the Super Bowl.
BOLD trade could push Detroit Lions over the top in 2023
Quinnen Williams, the New York Jets‘ defensive tackle, is reportedly not close to signing a long-term extension with the team. Williams has already skipped voluntary offseason workouts, and after a breakout 2022 season where he earned a Pro Bowl nod and was named a first-team All-Pro, he is likely seeking a huge contract extension. Williams' ability to rush the quarterback and blow up run plays is exactly what the Lions defense needs.
Bottom Line – A bold move for Quinnen Williams result in Super Bowl
In order for th Detroit Lions to truly have a chance at the Super Bowl, they absolutely must solidify the interior of their defensvie line. Acquiring Quinnen Williams would be a significant step in the right direction for the Lions. While it would come at a cost, the potential rewards far outweigh the risks. The Lions must be willing to make bold moves if they want to compete at the highest level, and attempting to trade for Williams is a move they cannot afford to pass up.

It IS an opinion article Richard. That is it’s entire point.
While it’s true that the Lions had a significant turnaround at the end of last season, I’m going to withhold any “possible Super Bowl” comments until they at least get into the playoffs. The last time the Lions won a national championship, I was a year and a half old. I’ll be 68 the end of July. I’m still waiting. I’ve been burned too many times by wishful optimism. I’ll wait for a decisively winning record first, and they can resume playing the National Anthem before EVERY GAME, with the entire team standing on the sidelines, with their right hands over their hearts.
I agree. Lions are still mot close to a Super Bowl eith or without Williams.
While Quinnen Williams is arguably the best DT in the league right now, this is unrealistic. He is under contract with the Jets and you don’t have the value to provide the Jets with what they require. The loss of Quinnen is too great, the Jets would pay him before they do anything else. The Jets are in ring hunting mode. Why would they give you a key piece so you can ring hunt, we had a top 5 defense last year with incompetent QB play and half of an offensive line. Now we have an invested Aaron Rodgers who wants to win in NY and they are primed to win this year or next. ANY team acquiring Quinnen is unrealistic. He was VERY open about not going to voluntary workouts because he has a newborn at home, he was very own saying he wanted to spend time at home this off-season for that reason specifically. NEVER going to happen. They aren’t close on numbers cuz his agent is trying to get him Donald money when he only plays 60% of snaps. Jets will extend him, but he’ll have to take less if he wants a ring. He’s worth $25M/year. You’ll see him get a 4 year $100M mostly guaranteed money because he’s proven to be durable. Stop wasting people’s time.
