The Detroit Lions have acquired Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones in exchange for a 2025 sixth-round pick, according to general manager Brad Holmes. “He’s a big guy with a lot of versatility.” “He has good contested catch skills, he can play inside and outside,” Holmes said. “He’s a very smart player who has been extremely durable.” He embodies everything we stand for. I think he’ll fit right in. He’s another flavor we’re experimenting with. He can do a lot for us, so we’ll just see how quickly we can get him acclimated.” Holmes hinted that the team may have completed all trades before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.
