They would fill some major holes. Very excited to see what they do in FA and what the new players have to say about why they sugned with Detroit.
Outside player perspective of our new staff and front office will be something to listen too. Yes, I understand themoney part. Lots of teams have money. I’m just curious about Dan and Brad from new players POV.
I’d be surprised and pleased with Williams, though I think he’ll cost more than Holmes is willing to pay. If we got both Robinson and Williams at market value, Brad has lost his way and veered from the plan both DC and he have outlined repeatedly. Plus good receivers grow on trees these days.
I’d be thrilled with Williams. Elite safety who is 25 and is familiar with our DC? Yup, give me some of that. He’s been my top free agent target all along.
Robinson would depend entirely on price. Some of the numbers being thrown out for him are too rich for my blood. I think I prefer them to go a little “money ball” with the receivers and target one with the Rams 1st or 2nd.
I knew he was from Detroit, but after looking at his twitter, he still cares deeply about the area. Maybe he would be willing to give us a slight discount even. 3 years 45mil, with an easy out in year 3 would be awesome. 15mil is very good #2 WR/low end WR#1 money so it would hardly be an overpay.
I personally think getting both those players could be a realistic option for us.
Robinson makes so much sense. Next year will not only be a “prove it” year for him, I’m sure he’d love nothing more than to get in fine shape and ball out in his hometown. If the money is right, I think we’d be getting a guy who has somehow put himself in the ELITE discussion despite having the worst QB play one could have in a career.
Had he set the world on fire last year, I’d be against it… he’d be asking for too much with less to prove. But all day give me the guy with a chip on the shoulder who might have to settle for less coin due to his performance last season.
Interesting perspective. You have kinda changed my thinking.
I didn’t realize he was a Detroit boy. I was and still am a bit concerned with his age, will be 29 years old soon. But, at the right price, he might have a lot to prove yet. He was a stud in 2019 and 2020 with 200 catches combined with Mitch Trubisky throwing him the ball. And he might be motviated to stick it to the Bears.
I’d still prefer to go younger at WR, but I’m open to AR on 2 or 3 year deal.
I always knew he was from Detroit, but never knew he actually mentioned he wanted to play here. The guy has produced with bottom of the barrel QB’s his entire career. Goff would probably be the best QB hes ever played with. He is an absolutely fantastic route runner and is great once the ball is in the air. He has has good speed (not elite, but good), and has fantastic hands.
He can be the type of WR Randel El and Ben Johnson described. Pair Allen Robinson with a guy with elite speed and you have an excellent WR group with varied skillsets.
