Why it Matters for Detroit Lions and Riley Patterson

With the Lions acquiring Patterson, they now have three kickers on the roster. Patterson joins Michael Badgley, who re-signed with the Lions following the 2022 season, and John Parker Romo, who was recently signed as a free agent. A corresponding move to the trade has not yet been revealed, and it would not be surprising to see Romo released. Stay tuned.
