Caldwell said Ebron should have a better sophomore season in Detroit.
“I'm anticipating, just because I know what he's been doing and etcetera, and what he's been working at, I'm anticipating a pretty significant rise in his performance,” Caldwell said.
“Don't get me wrong, it's not like he's all of a sudden going to be Charlie Sanders, but he's going to be better than he was,” Caldwell said. “But he's working, believe me, he's working hard.”
The Lions deploy two strong starting wide receivers in All-Pro Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, but Ebron could emerge as a third option for quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Caldwell has also said that he expects Stafford to show improvement next season for the Lions.
