The 2019 season was a wash once Matthew Stafford went down and the offseason was a questionable one heading into a year where they could have improved and competed while the division was in a limbo. Detroit decided to trade Darius Slay with a pedestrian return and then took the best cornerback in the draft. They also drafted D’Andre Swift as they might not view Kerryon Johnson as the guy anymore, especially with his injury issues. Most of the offense returns with Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones as the primary weapons in the offense. T.J. Hockenson will try and get going after an injury-riddled rookie season.

Top Lions Roster Questions of 2020

FAQ

The Lions had an incredibly disappointing 2019 season with a 3-12-1 record. The team went through a ton of injuries as their top quarterback, running back, and tight end in Matthew Stafford, Kerryon Johnson, and T.J. Hockenson all missed significant chunks of time. It's worth noting that the Lions were 3-4-1 last season with Stafford at QB before he was injured midway through the year, with three of their four losses being one-score games. The Lions had a very productive offseason and likely brought in as many as seven new defensive starters between free agents Jamie Collins, Duron Harmon, Reggie Ragland, Danny Shelton, and Desmond Trufant as well as rookies Jeff Okudah and Julian Okwara. Detroit also drafted DeAndre Swift at running back, a high-upside athlete from Georgia. The Lions don't have strong odds to make the playoffs this season, but they have as good a chance to win the NFC North as any of their division-mates.

Who is the Highest Paid Lions Player?

The Lions' highest-paid player heading into the 2020-21 season is starting quarterback Matthew Stafford who has a cap hit of $21.3 million for this season. Stafford was on pace for 38 passing touchdowns last season and is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL so this is a worthy investment.

Who Owns the Detroit Lions?

The current principal owner of the Lions is Martha Firestone Ford who acquired the team when her husband William passed away in 2014. William Clay Ford Sr. was the last surviving grandchild of Henry Ford, who founded Ford Motor Company. The Ford family has been a fixture in Detroit for decades.

Who Is the Lions Head Coach?

Matt Patricia is entering his third season as the Lions' head coach and has compiled a 9-22-1 record in his first two seasons in that role. Patricia is a defensive specialist, serving as the defensive coordinator for the Patriots under Bill Belichick for six seasons.

How Much Cap Space do the Lions Have?

The Lions have $29.1 million in salary-cap space, which is the third-most in the NFL. This is despite over $20 million in dead cap money owed to veteran players who are no longer on the team. The Lions could look to bolster what is already a strong roster before the season starts.

Who Is the Lions' Starting Running Back?

Kerryon Johnson is the incumbent starter as a third-year pro, but he's only been able to be on the field for 18 of 32 games in his career. The Lions drafted D'Andre Swift in the second round of this year's draft, who has a strong chance to take the starting role.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Lions?

The Lions' youngest players are first-round draft pick Jeff Okudah, a cornerback out of Ohio State, and second-round pick D'Andre Swift, a running back out of Georgia, both of whom are 21 years old, as is undrafted rookie wide receiver Hunter Bryant.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Lions?

Don Muhlbach, the Lions' longtime long-snapper, is currently the oldest player on the team at 38 years old. Muhlbach has been on the roster since 2004 and is entering his 17th season. Matt Prater, the team's starting kicker, is the second-oldest player at 35 years old.
