The Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams have a history over the last few seasons. A few years ago the Lions traded Matthew Stafford to the Rams for a massive haul. That trade resulted in the Rams winning the Super Bowl in 2021 and the Lions stocking up on draft picks for the future. A few years later, the Lions and Rams are once again being named in a pretty significant trade.
Detroit Lions Land Wide Receiver Van Jefferson From The Los Angeles Rams In Bold Trade Proposal
Alex Ballentine of Bleacher Report highlighted this trade scenario that would be a huge boost for the Lions’ passing attack:
The Los Angeles Rams have stripped their roster to the point that it’s hard to come up with someone they should be looking to trade. They’ve already parted with many notable players from their Super Bowl-winning roster two years ago.
Matthew Stafford, Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp are still the core, but players like Van Jefferson, who were role players on that team, are nearly all gone.
That’s why it might make sense for the Rams to continue the rebuild by dealing Jefferson. He’s in the final year of his rookie contract and hasn’t really done enough to guarantee he’s part of the long-term plan.
He wasn’t all that efficient last season. He caught just 24 of the 44 targets thrown his way for 369 yards and three touchdowns.
If the Rams aren’t sold on extending him in the offseason, it would make sense to try to get something for him now. A team like the Detroit Lions might be willing to give something up for him.
They traded for Denzel Mims earlier this offseason but have since waived him with an injury designation. They still need receiver depth, especially with Jameson Williams set to serve a six-game suspension to start the season after he violated the league’s gambling policy.
Amon-Ra St. Brown is a similar target magnet to Kupp, so the Lions should be able to utilize him as a good complement to their star wide receiver.
His big-play ability would fit very nicely with the Detroit offense, particularly early in the season. Second-year wideout Jameson Williams is expected to be the deep-threat for the Lions, but as previously mentioned, he will miss the first six games because of a suspension due to a gambling violation.
