I don’t see the Lions as one or two players away from becoming an SB contender. A playoff contender maybe, although the competition in the NFC is tough, but I can’t see mortgaging the future for a chance at a wildcard spot. Yeah, an upgrade at RB would be nice, but IMHO nobody they could trade for is going to do much better running behind this OL.
Likewise, they aren’t in rebuilding mode either, so unless somebody makes them an offer they can’t refuse then you don’t get rid of good players for next to nothing. And spare me the crap about Diggs, he wasn’t a good player for us this year.
So, the Lions stood pat. Doesn’t mean they weren’t looking and talking, we’ll never know what was on the table or not. But eh, let’s see what they can do over the back half.
