NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora reports that the Detroit Lions are in the process of making calls to acquire a starting-caliber wide receiver.
Many expected second-year receiver Ryan Broyles to setup and be the team’s No. 2 wideout this season, but he was running with the second-team offense during Thursday’s preseason game.
Detroit still has veteran Nate Burleson and second-year WR Patrick Edwards on their roster, but it appears as though they aren’t comfortable with their current group.
La Canfora lists the Bengals and Falcons as two teams who could have some receivers available for trade. La Canfora admits that there appears to be more demand than overall supply.

The Detroit Lions used a fourth-round draft pick on Ronnell Lewis last year.
Rather, they wasted one.
Lewis, an undersized 6-foot-2, 253-pound defensive end, is one of four players released Sunday by the Lions to cut their roster to 80 players. The club must trim down to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m.
The other players who failed to make the most recent cut were safety Chris Hope, cornerback...
NEED FOR SPEED
Reggie Bush nearly broke a short pass for a touchdown against the Patriots, but he was angry he got caught after a 67-yard gain.
As a Detroit Lions fan I am very familiar with the personnel and the offensive scheme.
The Lions have one legit WR, he just happens to be the best in the game. They cannot run the ball, period. Their offense consists of Stafford taking the snap in the shotgun position, looking for CJ down field and then dumping off to the RB.
This gameplan could result in Reggie breaking...
After the Detroit Lions went a disappointing 4-12 last season, they will need to step up as a team to bounce back this season. Of course, we all know it’s a given that Calvin Johnson will have another great season barring any injuries. I also expect Reggie Bush to have a great season in his first year as a Lion. He’s going to be a big threat coming out of the backfield both as...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Willie Young Mr. August taunting a future Hall of Fame quarterback.
Whats wrong with that picture?
Young, a defensive end for the Detroit Lions who was a star in the preseason last year but a flop in the regular season, wouldnt disclose what he said late in the first half of Thursdays exhibition game to draw a personal-foul penalty or why he did it.
Training camp and the preseason were good to the Detroit Lions. They came out of it with a nice idea of the strengths and weaknesses of the position groups and most importantly, healthy. Though the preseason isn’t over, training camp is done and it is time to analyze what it means going forward to the regular season.5. Rookies will play a contributing roll this season.The preseason...
Detroit defensive end Willie Young says he'll avoid penalties that hurt his team after taunting New England quarterback Tom Brady.
Young's taunt resulted in a 15-yard penalty in the Lions' 40-9 win against the Patriots in a preseason game on Thursday night.
After hurrying Brady into an incompletion in the New England end zone, Young grabbed Brady by the collar and said...
Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas might consider Tom Brady a god, but it was pretty clear that he as in the minority Thursday night. The Lions defense pretty much beat the Patriots--and Brady--to death in every way possible on the field forcing four turnovers in the first half alone.
In spite of the whipping they were putting on the Patriots you would think that maybe the...

The Cardinals are shopping RB Ryan Williams ahead of the roster cutdown deadlines.

I can’t imagine any team trading for Williams, he can’t stay healthy and is still unproven in the NFL.
