From Detroit Lions:

The Detroit Lions announced today that they have been assigned DE Mitchell Loewen via waivers from the New Orleans Saints. In addition, the club announced that they have placed DT A’Shawn Robinson (knee) on Reserve-Injured.

Loewen comes to Detroit after spending the past three seasons (2016-18) with New Orleans where he appeared in three games, including one in 2018. He originally entered the NFL in 2016 with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas.

If the Detroit Lions make this BOLD combo of moves, they will win the NFC North in 2019

The 2018 version of the Detroit Lions sucked horribly. The head coach sucked. The offense sucked. The defense sucked. Heck, even the special teams sucked at times.

So, with that established, what can be done during the offseason to turn things around on time for the kickoff of the 2019 season?

Though I have a few ideas up my sleeve that would help the team to improve greatly, the biggest idea is one that will likely blow your mind. Mostly because I am not sure if it has ever been done before.

In my opinion, there is one BOLD move the Lions can make this offseason that will, in turn, put the wheels in motion for a 2019 NFC North Title run.

Now, I get it. You are probably already shaking your head and calling me a moron for thinking the Lions have any chance in 2019.

But they do.

IF and ONLY IF they make this BOLD move. (Technically it is a trio of moves but stick with me)
