The Detroit Lions made a move this afternoon at the NFL Trade Deadline by acquiring former Michigan Wolverines wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2025 sixth-round pick.

The trade background

Peoples-Jones, who is in his 4th NFL season after being taken out of the University of Michigan by the Cleveland Browns, has amassed 1,837 receiving yards and eight touchdowns throughout his career. This year, he has eight receptions for a total of 97 yards, coming off the heels of a career-best output last season of 839 yards on 61 receptions and three touchdowns.

The move was needed by Detroit after Marvin Jones Jr. stepped away from the team to attend to a personal family matter.

“He brings versatility. He’s a big guy, he’s got good contested catch skills, he can play outside, he can play inside,” Holmes said. “He’s a very smart player, he’s been very, very durable. He fits everything that we’re about. So, I think he’ll fit in just fine. He’s another flavor that we’re adding to our mix. So, it’s a lot of things that he can do for us.”
