January’s trade of Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for Jared Goff, like every transaction, will be rushed to the altar of judgment. Touchdown passes, interceptions, and yes, quarterback wins, will be just a few of the criteria by which Stafford and Goff will be compared in 2021. Is it fair?
Former Cal wide receiver Chad Hansen, who had a rebirth in the NFL last season with the Houston Texans, signed with the Detroit Lions on Friday. The Lions made the announcement just after the completion of voluntary workouts. They waived wideout Jonathan Adams and signed Hansen to a contract.
Still, there's little question the Lions will still be looking for every opportunity they can to get the ball in Swift's hands. Hampered by injuries his rookie year, Swift was dynamic when he was in the lineup, racking up 4.6 yards per carry and hauling in 46 receptions, while finding the end zone 10 times. Going forward, he'll rarely carry the ball more than 15 times per game, but there's so much room for him to expand his role as a pass-catcher.
