Detroit Lions reportedly get WR Tyrell Williams on one-year, $6.2 million deal

Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Lions have reportedly added to their wide receiver corps. 

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Lions have agreed to a deal with wide receiver Tyrell Williams on a one-year, $6.2 million deal. 

Williams, 29, was cut by the Las Vegas Raiders last week. He did not play last season with a torn shoulder labrum. He was signed by the Raiders before the 2019 season.

He started his career with four seasons with the Chargers, where new Lions offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn was the head coach. Williams’ best season was 2016, when he caught 69 passes for 1,059 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Lions have big question marks at wide receiver, with Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola entering offseason as free agents and Kenny Golladay possibly getting the franchise tag.
