WIDE RECEIVERS (5):
- IN: Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin, T.J. Jones, Jay Lee, Corey Fuller (PUP)
- OUT: Andre Roberts, Jace Billingsley, Quinshad Davis
OUTLOOK: There is one open receiver position after the top four wideouts. T.J Jones, even with a so-so preseason, was given the veteran treatment of sitting out the final exhibition game. Jace Billingsley is a fan favorite and is constantly being compared to Wes Welker. Not every small, white receiver is Welker unfortunately. Most of these diminutive slot guys that put up big numbers are also paired with a hall of fame quarterback. Jay Lee creates the most diversity among the receiver group as he is both tall and fast– something the Lions are lacking.
