The Detroit Lions played their final game of the season on Sunday, defeating the Green Bay Packers 31-0 at Lambeau Field.
One day later, the offseason has already begun for the Lions as they announced they have signed a handful of players to reserve-future contracts.
Those players include WR Deontez Alexander, LB Garret Dooley, S David Jones, OL Jarron Jones, and DE Jonathan Wynn.

Reserve-future contracts are generally used on young players and are a little different from a normal contract. Instead of going into effect immediately and counting towards the salary cap, they go into effect on the first day of the 2019 season which will March 13 at 4 pm. This is also the same day NFL rosters expand to 90 players until Training Camp cuts.
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)
