Former Lions WR Travis Fulgham finds new home with Packers

The former Lions wideout has a new home.

The Detroit Lions decided to part ways with receiver Travis Fulgham, as he was among five players the team elected to cut on Sunday as their final roster takes shape.

He won’t have to go too far for his new NFL home.

Per NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport, Fulgham will be headed to Green Bay to team up with the Packers.

Originally selected in the 2019 NFL Draft, Fulgham was cut by the Lions at the end of the 2019 season’s first month after having earned a place on the 53-man roster. He was relegated to the practice squad and was activated in December.

Best of luck to Fulgham with the Packers (just not against the Lions!)

BONUS CONTENT: ClickOnDetroit suggests multi-player deal with the Yankees

The Detroit Tigers may be raising a few eyebrows so far in the shortened 2020 campaign, but one local Detroit outlet has proposed a blockbuster trade that would raise eyebrows up to the ceiling.

In order for the upstart Tigers to compete with the likes of the Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins, ClickOnDetroit is suggesting that the Tigers pull a big-time move with the Bronx Bombers.

The proposal would see the Tigers acquiring Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar from the Yankees in exchange for a combination of any of the following: Spencer Turnbull, Matthew Boyd, Gregory Soto, Buck Farmer, Jose Cisnero and Joe Jimenez.

The reasoning behind the move being that the Yankees are currently experiencing a logjam of players and could afford to part with younger talent thanks to their already stacked roster, while the Tigers could be looking to surprise people with a playoff run later in the year if their strong start continues, and would accelerate their rebuild.

“Jimenez is off to a nice start after striking out 12.4 batters per nine innings a year ago. Farmer has allowed one walk and no hits in five cleaning innings as the setup man. Cisnero has been excellent in the middle and late innings.

Soto has outshined them all, though, retiring 17 of 20 batters, including eight strikeouts. He hasn’t allowed a run and is missing bats at a 14% clip.

The Tigers won’t want to give up any of these players, but it would make sense to try to bring in some hitters who have already had success in the majors.

Boyd, in particular, makes sense because he will be coming up on free agency right as the Tigers are starting to come into contention. They need to decide if they’re going to pay up to extend him as a 32-year-old in 2023, and if not, they should try to bring in pieces for the future.

The Tigers will have to give up good players to get good players in return, even if the Yankees don’t have room for the players they’re targeting.”

…..

Frazier was the No. 15 prospect in all of baseball before he got promoted to the Yankees in 2017, while Andujar was in the top 70 before his first full season in 2018.

In that full season, Andujar hit 27 home runs and 47 doubles in 149 games with a low strikeout rate and a .297/.328/.527 slash line. He was insanely productive and finished with 2.9 WAR.

Tigers fans, what do you think of this proposal?
