Lions To Sign WR/KR Kalif Raymond

The Lions have agreed to sign Kalif Raymond, per an announcement from his agents. The Titans non-tendered the wide receiver/kick returner earlier this year, freeing him up to sign with any club.

Raymond, 27 in August, has performed as one of the league’s better punt returners. He brought back 23 punts for 208 yards last year, good for a 9.0 yard average per try. He also returned 15 kickoffs for 275 yards total. After previous stints with the Broncos, Jets, and Giants (twice), he’ll push to make the Lions’ final cut in September.

After losing Kenny Golladay to the Giants and Marvin Jones to the Jaguars, the Lions are expected to keep searching for solutions at wide receiver. For now, they’ve added Raymond, Tyrell Williams, and Breshad Perriman to the group.

    Assuming as primarily a return guy option… ‍♂️. Gotta go WR with that first pick. Grabbing one a bit later might be wise too with all the depth in the draft.

      I think you gotta trade out of 7 and gain more capital. Lions don’t need to take a WR in the first round. I think they can get a really good WR in round 2. If Parsons or Sewell is there at 7, I think the value and impact will be better.

        I agree…. give someone keys to the QB derby and possibly still grab one of the big 3 receivers or Parsons

    Still can’t figure out why the WFT didn’t pick up this guy – as their own punt/kick returner fumbled the ball six (6) times last year.
