Lions Sign This Important Playmaker

The Detroit Lions and Marvin Jones Jr are reuniting after the Lions lost their star receiver D.J. Chark. On Wednesday, the veteran wide receiver announced that he is returning to the Lions.

Jones signed a one-year deal worth $3 million. However, the agreement includes incentives that could push his contract to $5 million.

The veteran receiver played five seasons for Detroit after signing a five-year $40 million deal in 2016.

During his five-year tenure with the Lions, it was evident that the fans grew to love him. He caught 289 passes for 4,296 yards and 36 touchdowns across 69 games. Jones’s best year came as a Detroit Lion in 2017. Jones had 61 receptions for a career-high 1,101 yards and nine touchdowns. He also averaged 18 yards per catch.

The Lions Reunite With Jones Jr

The 33-year-old is joining a talented group of receivers in Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams, who we have yet to play an entire NFL campaign missing most of his 2023 season, recovering from a college injury.

Jones Jr spent his last two years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones will help take the pressure off the young receivers, especially after losing Chark to the Panthers, who signed him to a one-year deal.

Like Chark, Jones Jr is a big-bodied receiver who can make contested catches that will help give the Lions some much-needed flexibility in their wide receiving corp.

It’s hard to ignore Jones’s history with consistency and health, but Jones played in every game except for one in the last three years. In those three seasons, he accounted for 195 receptions, 2,339 receiving yards, and 16 touchdowns.

Jones can still produce and beat guys on the outside. The Lions are bolstering their offense and will seemingly upgrade in the draft.

Jared Goff should continue to rise with the new passing addition in Jones. Goff threw for 4,438 yards (6th) and 29 touchdowns (5th) with a QBR of 61.1 (5th) last season. He hopes to improve as a quarterback, and he should with the help of Marvin Jones, who can sometimes stretch the field. So, Jared has to throw the ball down the field.

The Lions Are In It To Win It

In the offseason, the team made strives to improve its offense and defense. They upgraded their secondary with the signings of C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Cameron Sutton, and Emmanuel Moseley. On the offensive side, the Lions signed David Montgomery, RB.

Dan Campbell stated, “Every team should want to attend the Super Bowl. I mean every year. But we are positioned to swing with the big boys this year.”

It’s interesting to see what the Lions have in store for next season. We saw what they could accomplish towards the end of the season, and they’re on set to do big things this upcoming season.

The Lions are expected to win the division, the NFC North, especially if they continue to make impressive strides like they did last year.

The Lions are in it to win “The Black and Blue Division” because they have the best talent overall. The Lions will be good on both sides this upcoming season. Let’s not forget, the Lions did win eight of their last ten games.

Regarding the other teams in the division, I’m not sure what to expect. The Vikings are imploding with major blows to both the defensive and offensive sides of the ball, and the Packers are on the verge of trading their franchise quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

The Bears managed to have a great offseason, but their quarterback is Justin Fields.

If the Lions win the division, it’ll be their first time since the 90s. In 1991, Detroit went 12-4 and won the NFC North crown. The team has the best talent on paper and possibly on the field.
