Good morning and ROOOOAAARRR!!!!
The Detroit Lions might need a wide receiver. So the team is apparently at least taking a peek at a known commodity.
The Lions apparently brought in Matt Willis, who the team cut in August, last week for workouts according to multiple reports. While it is tough to read what this might mean for Detroit other than it has a lack of numbers at wide receiver with Nate Burleson out indefinitely and Patrick Edwards still returning from an ankle injury, at least checking out options at the position makes sense.
And Willis is a guy Detroit is familiar with. He had nine catches for 129 yards and a touchdown during the preseason with a penchant for making difficult receptions.
So at least he's a guy on the Lions' radar -- and he probably was never really off of it -- if they decide they need an extra pass catcher to go with Calvin Johnson, Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles, Brandon Pettigrew, Tony Scheffler and Joseph Fauria.
