From the Sunshine State to the Motor City.

Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, former Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El is expected to join the Detroit Lions as their wide receivers coach.

Randle El, who spent most of his playing career with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2002-2005, 2010), was an offensive assistant with the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Now Randle El will head north to a team that will be decidedly different in the 2021 season. If all goes as planned, quarterbacks Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford will be trading places next month. Star wide receivers Marvin Jones, Jr. and Kenny Golladay are pending free agents, so it’ll be interesting to see just which WRs Randle El ends up coaching.
