Detroit Lions NFL free agents Brad Holmes should bring back


As the Lions General manager, attempt to move forward in their rebuilding this offseason Brad Holmes The front office of Detroit will be making some interesting decisions.

Holmes should also continue to build through free agency and the NFL Draft. Holmes should also look to bring back some free agents at the season’s end.

Here are four impending free agents. Holmes & Co. Should re-sign in the coming offseason

DL Isaiah Buggs

BuggsBefore the 2022 campaign began, Detroit claimed he was on waivers. He has been a steady presence in the interior of the building. Lions’ This season, be sure to keep your defensive line in check.

The 26-year old has been a good run-stuffing presence, except for last week against the Panthers, and has done a solid job of getting after quarterbacks. He’s actually produced eight quarterback hits this season.

His best game was Week 14, against Minnesota Vikings. He recorded three QB hits, and forced a Dalvin cook fumble.

I would strongly consider bringing a short-term, cost-effective deal. Buggs In 2023, we will be returning to the Motor City.


WR DJ Chark

It took some time. CharkThe Lions acquired, a free-agent acquisition, to establish a relationship with the Detroit signal-caller Jared Goff. Chark’s ankle injury in the first week of this season, which kept him out for seven weeks (from Weeks 4-10), didn’t help matters.

Over the past four weeks, however, the connection between Goff, and Chark This has gained some serious momentum.

The former Jaguars receiver has had three games with at least 95 receiving yards since Week 13. He’s also averaged four receptions and 80 yards per game over the same time period, including nearly 20 yards per reception (19.88). He’s also caught 80 percent of Goff’s passes.

As Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson Chark’s presence helped to rejuvenate, Chark said Thursday Detroit’s deep passing game.

“(The) deep balls (success) I think a lot has do with DJ (Chark’s back.” Johnson Reporters were informed. “He’s healthy. He’s making big plays for us. That was the first third down of last week’s game against Carolina, third-and-10. It’s a tough catch. That’s something we highlighted about him during his time in Jacksonville that attracted us to him. We saw it in training camp. Then, we got a bit derailled when he was injured. Now, he is back. He’s well and adds that energy to our team.”

Healthy people are happier. Chark Is a reliable deep-ball target. If I’m not, HolmesI am looking to re-sign the 26 year-old to a one or two-year contract this offseason.


RB Justin Jackson

Jackson A quality depth piece that runs back for the has been the definition. Lions This season.

He’s not been explosive and his average speed is 4.1 yards per carry.

He is capable of playing a solid game once in a while, however, and serves the role of a third option from the backfield quite well. His Week 11 rushing performance of 66 yards and nine carry against the N.Y. Giants.

If Holmes Jackson could be re-signed on a one-year, affordable deal in the offseason. I believe it would be worthwhile for the benefit of the Lions To retain the services of the fifth-year back.

RB Jamaal Williams

His production has been down in recent weeks. He ran for just 11 yards against the Carolina Panthers last week, and has not rushed more than 37 yards in any of his other games. Lions’ last four games.

It should be an easy decision to bring back the veteran for the 2023 season. Holmes & Co.

Williams He has become a goal-line specialist in Detroit in 2022 and currently paces all NFL Backs with a record 14 rushing touchdowns.

Williams, D’Andre SwiftWhen they’ve been healthy, they have made a formidable duo out of the Lions’ backfield. It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. Detroit To “run it back” with the duo next season.
