  • Jameson Williams Could Be Ready Early In The Year

    Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams (knee) thinks he can be ready by training camp in August, which would be an aggressive timetable for a return after he tore his ACL in the National Championship game on Jan. 11. Typically, ACL repair recovery takes nine to 12 months. Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 11 would be exactly eight months from the injury. If the first-rounder take part in training camp at all, he could make his NFL debut in the first month of the season. If he misses camp, Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman doesn't think we'll see Williams until late September or early October. The 21-year-old has been making good progress and has a ton of long-term potential, but those in redraft leagues should temper their expectations in Year 1.

  • Lions Reach Deal With First-Rounder Jameson Williams

    The Detroit Lions and first-round wide receiver Jameson Williams agreed to a four-year, fully guaranteed rookie deal on Thursday, according to a source. The deal includes a fifth-year team option. The Lions have now locked up both of their first-round selections in Williams and defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, who was the second overall pick. Detroit took Williams at No. 12 overall, and although there are questions about whether he'll be ready for the season due to an ACL tear suffered in the National Championship game, Williams has perhaps the most upside of any rookie receiver. The 21-year-old could get off to a slow start in his first season if he's delayed, which makes him much more attractive in dynasty leagues in drafts this fall.

  • Lions Sign First-Rounder Aidan Hutchinson

    The Detroit Lions agreed to a four-year, fully guaranteed deal for $35.7 million with a signing bonus of $23,153,372 with defensive end Aidan Hutchinson on Monday, according to agent Mike McCartney. The Lions were more than happy to take Hutchinson at No. 2 overall in this year's draft when the Jacksonville Jaguars passed on him at No. 1 overall. Hutchinson was an absolute beast off the left side at Michigan in college, and he should immediately help one of the worst pass-rushing units in the NFL. The 21-year-old pass-rusher recorded 14 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss in 14 games in his final collegiate season in 2021.
