The Lions tried to add depth this offseason, snagging Geronimo Allison in free agency, then snagging Cephus in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. We've learned that Allison has opted out of the season, meaning Cephus may be one injury away from starting for the Lions. I'll be honest... Cephus was a top-10 wide receiver in this draft class and I was really curious where he'd land. Knowing Marvin Jones has dealt with injuries over the last few years and that Danny Amendola will be 35 years old in a few months, there's a chance we see Cephus on the field sooner than expected. He's a name to pay attention to should there be an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.
