When it comes to sports it’s all about adding the most talented players to your roster and football is no different. That’s why the Detroit Lions should use the last remaining $9M dollars of cap space they have and sign Dez Bryant to a one year deal. So much of the game is played out of shotgun formation these days (especially when Matthew Stafford is your quarterback) and that means you need four receivers who can create some plays downfield. By adding Dez Bryant to the group of Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, and Kenny Golladay there’s a good chance the Lions could have the best receivers in the entire National Football League. Atlanta and Pittsburgh’s are pretty good but Detroit has a chance to be four receivers deep at the position. When you put that much talent around Matthew Stafford it’s going to result in favorable results for the Lions offense. Keep in mind Bob Quinn has already addressed the running back position with the LeGarrette Blount and Kerryon Johnson. The offensive line will also get a boost with Frank Ragnow eliminating the pass rush upfront. Adding Dez Bryant to all that good momentum is exactly what the Lions need to get over the top in the NFC North. We know Minnesota is the favorite to win the division but Stafford can get it done if he has those four horsemen out wide. What’s a better way to show Matt Patricia you appreciate the hard work he has been putting in then by signing Dez Bryant? Everyone would be all smiles and it’s a fresh start for the former Cowboy (Bryant). And when he actually arrives in Detroit Bryant will quickly realize this is an environment that’s very conducive to the things he wants to accomplish. Remember Anquan Boldin came to the Lions late in his career and had some success with this team. Dez Bryant could come in and make an even bigger splash.

Dez Bryant would give the Detroit Lions enough firepower to get past the Minnesota Vikings.
