Detroit Lions success in 2022 may rely on health

When you look at the Detroit Lions roster now compared to last season, there are certainly some improvements but there is no question that Brad Holmes still has some work to do.

Though they did not add a ton of major pieces to the puzzle during free agency, players like Jeff Okudah and Romeo Okwara are returning from season-ending injuries, and if they have a chance to be part of the solution for the Lions.
