Last week, we published a piece revealing the Detroit Lions as one of the odds on favorites to land Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
At the time, the Lions were listed at +500 to land Brown, behind only the Atlanta Falcons who were listed at +400.
On Tuesday, some more odds have been released and he Lions are now way down the list at +4000. Interesting enough, the Falcons are also +4000 to acquire Brown before the 2019 season.
Per @BetDSI, the 49ers are the betting favorite to acquire Antonio Brown at +200 and the Raiders are the betting favorite to draft Kyler Murray at +250, for whatever any of that is worth. pic.twitter.com/G6QF17ahrF

Though this is a different sportsbook than last week, it is certainly interesting to see the fluctuation from one week to the next.
That being said, if you are confident that Brown will be wearing the Honolulu blue and silver in 2019, place your bet!
Detroit Lions’ Fans: Chill out, the best OC candidate is still available
When news broke that Jim Bob Cooter would not be returning to the Detroit Lions in 2019, head coach Matt Patricia was immediately charged with what will be the most important move the team will need to make this offseason. Hiring a new offensive coordinator.
Within hours (maybe even sooner) of the news Cooter was not coming back, the speculation began as to who would be the best choice to replace him. There were reports Adam Gase was going to be fired by the Miami Dolphins (which he eventually was) and that he would be a top target for the Lions. Well, that may or may not have been the case, but Gase decided to take the head coaching job with the New York Jets.
Other possible candidates included Kliff Kingsbury (HC Arizona), Freddie Kitchens (HC Cleveland), Todd Monken (OC Cleveland), Nathanial Hackett (OC Green Bay), and Steve Sarkisian (OC Alabama).
As the announcements came that those coaches had taken other jobs, coupled with the Lions being silent about the matter, something predictable happened.
Many Lions’ fans began to panic.
Those fans started to post messages on social media saying the best candidates were just passing the Lions by and that Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn was going to have to settle for the last pick, which, of course, would end up being a failure.
Well, I have something to say about that…
