    Lions Sign Geronimo Allison

    Allison has agreed to a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum of $910,000, a source confirmed to ESPN. NFL Network first reported the terms of the deal, adding that Allison will also get a $137,500 signing bonus.


    With how deep the WR group is in this year's draft this signing makes me kind of scratch my head. Like, what's the point?

    You and me both. He's definitely a Quinn type of player in that he's a big WR who can jump but he's also slow for a WR, he's had some personal issues, and he scored a 13 on the Wonderlic. I'm not sure what he adds other than not being a rookie.

    Hooray. Let's get slower in a league that continues to evolve with speed and athleticism. I get it, they have a love for size and catch radius but if you cannot separate you are going to struggle especially if the o-line isn't very good on top of it. Marvin Hall was so beloved because he provided something other than big guy jump ball.

    Furthermore: https://relativeathleticscores.com/2...o-allison-ras/ He has an awful athletic score.

    It's a one year deal and probably won't make the team, but even I don't see any upside other than he is a veteran and provides "depth". This should not deter the Lions from drafting a WR, one that has speed and athleticism.

    Wow, I take it back, he can't jump. Hopefully there's no dead cap on this guy.

    you guys are missing the point, we signed a guy named Geronimo, what better name to epitomize the entire Lions experience?
