Poll: Which Lions Signing Was Best of 2020?

Latest SI All Lions poll focuses on which Detroit signing was the best of last offseason.

Former Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn made a myriad of moves last offseason in a failed attempt to make the Lions into a playoff contending squad. 

He acquired numerous players in free agency, including veteran defensive back Desmond Trufant, veteran backup quarterback Chase Daniel, veteran linebackers Jamie Collins and Reggie Ragland, career backup offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai and special teams ace Jayron Kearse. 

Quinn's signings largely backfired, contributing to a third straight losing campaign for Detroit (a 5-11 finish) and Quinn and ex-Lions head coach Matt Patricia losing their jobs before season's end. 

Not everyone was a bust from Detroit's 2020 free-agent class, however. 

Most notably, Collins and Ragland became the team's most reliable linebackers.

Collins, a New England Patriots transplant, finished with a team-high 101 total tackles, and tied with defensive end Romeo Okwara for a team-leading three forced fumbles in 14 games. 

Meanwhile, Ragland, in primarily a part-time role (six starts in 16 games), amassed 52 combined tackles, four tackles for loss, three QB hits and a forced fumble. 

Which free-agent signing do you think was the best from a season ago?
