Lions trade for Mike Thomas

Latest NFL News and Commentary

Mike Thomas is only a few years removed from fantasy relevance. It is a safe bet that the Lions will ask him to take over special teams duties to spark their sagging punt and kick off return game. Thomas has great hands and will provide depth on special teams. Thomas is also a good depth play for the Lions who need help at the slot receiver position. Thomas should back up Ryan Broyles – allowing Titus Young to move to the outside full time.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Lions have acquired veteran receiver Mike Thomas from the Jaguars.

This means excellent things for Titus Young, who enjoyed a break out performance last week. Young will be allowed to patrol opposite of Megatron which will mean more single coverage – and more deep shots down the field. Broyles and Thomas will switch hit the slot position.
