When it comes to wide receivers, the Detroit Lions do not necessarily have one of the best units in the NFL. In fact, on paper, they may have the worst.
But does that mean they should consider trading the Atlanta Falcons for 7-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Julio Jones?
According to Shaun O’Hara of the NFL Network, the Lions should be a team trying to trade for Jones.
Shaun O’Hara on NFL Network saying the Lions should be a team trying to trade for Julio Jones. I just don’t think the team is in the spot to do that yet. If this was next year and the team was closer and all we were missing was WR, then it would make sense. Not now

My opinion on this matter should not come as a surprise. Overpaying for a wide receiver should be a fireable offense for an NFL GM and trading for a star wide receiver is nothing different.
I believe that Brad Holmes feels the same way about WRs as I do and I would be absolutely shocked (and upset) if it were to happen.
