Podcast: Does Jason Huntley or Quintez Cephus Have a Better Chance to Make the Team?

John Maakaron

On this week's LionsMaven podcast, John Maakaron and Logan Lamorandier explore roster positions and remaining free agents that could aid the 2020 Detroit Lions. 

Safety Eric Reid is still available on the free agent market, but is not expected to be a target for Detroit at this time.

According to Pro Football Focus, Reid’s 2019 season was the worst of his career.

He graded out at 46.6 -- the third-worst graded safety in the NFL of those who played at least 20 percent of snaps.

Even more concerning, he had the lowest coverage grade of any NFL safety. That’s not what the Lions need at this point.

Also discussed: 

  • The Kansas City Chiefs gave Patrick Mahomes a massive contract extension.
  • Should Detroit consider extending Matthew Stafford?
  • What should the Lions offer Stafford for his next contract, if they plan on keeping him in Motown?
  • Kenny Golladay was not named a top-10 wide receiver in the NFL by league executives, scouts and players.
  • Thoughts on covering the NFL during a global pandemic.
  • Why Clay Matthews may be just what Detroit is looking for from the list of remaining free agents. 
  • Which 2020 fifth-round draft pick has the better chance of making the roster: wide receiver Quintez Cephus or running back Jason Huntley?

I think Huntley has the better chance! There are a lot of WR for Cephus to try and leapfrog in depth chart


Cephus for sure
