The Detroit Lions finished at the bottom of the NFC North standings once again this past season, but the future is looking bright under head coach Dan Campbell. He could have his team ready to compete as soon as next fall, especially with the free agent signing NFL.com expects Detroit to make.

Lions Free Agency

NFL.com projects the Lions to be a perfect landing spot for wide receiver Allen Robinson. Robinson struggled to produce in an underwhelming Chicago Bears offense in 2021. However, he will be one of the most coveted free agents available given he has posted three 1,000 yard seasons in his career.

Detroit ranked No. 24 in net yards per pass attempt in last season and lacks any kind of outside threat to pair with Amon-Ra St. Brown through the air. Robinson has the frame (6-foot-2, 220 pounds) to take on physical coverage down the field and would make it tough for opposing defenses to cover both players efficiently.

The former Penn State standout also comes with eight years of NFL experience, which could be impactful in mentoring Detroit's abundantly youthful roster. The Lions have over $20.1 million in projected cap space available to make Robinson a multi-year offer worthy of his consideration.

All things considered, Detroit needs to upgrade its offense this offseason in order to keep up with the rest of the division. Adding Robinson to the mix would make for a huge splash. For now, the Lions remain long shots to win Super Bowl 57 with odds set at +12000, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
