Detroit Lions Trade For WR Donovan Peoples-Jones


Donovan Peoples-Jones, a receiver for the Browns, was acquired by the Detroit Lions, it was revealed on Tuesday afternoon. The Lions lost their 2025 sixth-round pick as a result of the decision, according to general manager Brad Holmes.

It comes as a bit of a surprise because Peoples-Jones has only caught eight catches for 97 yards this year and receiving wasn’t a major necessity. Nevertheless, he just finished a season in which he caught 61 passes for 839 yards and three touchdowns.

Even though Peoples-Jones is only 24 years old, his rookie contract is coming to an end. Although he might only be a half-year rental, if he produces, this might be quite similar to Josh Reynolds’ acquisition in 2021.

In his brief remarks regarding the deal, Lions general manager Brad Holmes stated that the team needed some more depth following Marvin Jones Jr.’s abrupt departure earlier this month to attend to a family matter.

“We’re excited about the kid,” Holmes said. “He’s had good production in the past, he’ll be a good fit here. He’s been a high character kid. Obviously he’s from Michigan, he’s from Detroit, he’s a local kid. So I think he’ll be very, very happy. I just talked to the kid, he’s fired up about getting this process going.”

Shortly after, head coach Dan Campbell made a statement stating that he thought this deal was necessary because of the team’s depth at outside receiver.

“You always feel like you’re one injury away,” Campbell said. “That was a position we felt like, ‘Man, (if) we can find a steady, reliable guy that fits us, that can play outside, that was something that we wanted to look and see if we could acquire.”
