Lions pick up the option on Eric Ebron’s contract

AP

The Lions have held their cards close to the vest when it comes to Eric Ebron, but decided he had too much potential to not secure.

Via Tim Twentyman of the team’s official website, the Lions have picked up the 2018 option on the tight end’s rookie contract.

Ebron has gotten progressively better each year, and had 61 catches for 711 yards last season.

If he can continue to progress, they won’t mind the expense.

    Lions were stuck between a rock and a hard place on this one. He has that potential to be awesome, however he hasn’t showed any consistency at all except to be hurt and drop balls…

    As a close friend of the organization Ebron is a gamer and is the primary target for Stafford, when healthy

    TE has a big learning curve. I’m excited to see what he can do given a full, healthy season.

    If you had read the post or if you actually watched football you would know that he has steadily improved every year and in spite of missing multiple games due to injury last season he had 61 receptions for over 700 yards. If you want to have a discussion about first round busts maybe we should have a little talk about your boy Teddy Bustwater I hear he’ll never wear a Vikings uniform again

    Wow how many different screen names do you have? And why are you so obsessed with my team? I’m worried about you I would encourage you to seek professional help immediately

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Teddy had a freak injury, he would have been twice the QB Stafford could even dream of. You seem to have multiple people that see through your delusion and desperation on here as a suffering, miserable Lions fan.
