Detroit Lions receiver Jameson Williams deserves more time

Detroit Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams (9) and safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (2) talk during training camp at team headquarters in Allen Park on Friday, July 28, 2023.

Jameson Williams dropped a pass Monday. Actually, he dropped three, according to some who watched the Detroit Lions receiver practice in Allen Park.

And if he can’t be traded, cut him.

In fact, Brad Holmes should take the podium before the Lions return to practice Wednesday and use two words:

“Mea Culpa!!!!”

Nice going, Brad. All those promising picks? All that faith you’ve given the Lions faithful that you might know what you’re doing?
