Notes: Detroit Lions among teams that ‘desperately need to strike a trade’

I think you can probably guess the suggested target of a trade.

The Detroit Lions are good but still need a piece of the puzzle to push them to where they should be.

At least, that’s what Chris Roling of Bleacher Report argues. Just past the first quarter of the season, the writer listed Detroit as the first of six NFL teams that “desperately need to strike a trade.”

He explains that while the Lions look good on both sides of the ball right now, bolstering Detroit’s defensive power could be the key to a successful season. Roling suggests the trade that Lions fans love to think about: bringing Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Motor City.

Ramsey and the Lions are a good schematic fit, and the Detroit front office has plenty of draft assets to splurge (it still has all of its top-50 picks over the next two years) if it wants to make a move,” Roling writes.

After a strong performance defensively against the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs last week without Darius Slay, does the trade still make sense to you? Is it desperately needed?

Onto the rest of your notes:

  • Kenny Golladay ranks among the top five receivers in air yards.

  • Darius Slayton’s response was pretty funny too:
