A saga that has played out since Calvin Johnson first ascended to his current rank amongst the NFL's elite WRs has been the Detroit Lions' quest to find a suitable No. 2 WR to start opposite him. The latest contestants included journeyman Nate Burleson as well as a pair of second-round picks invested on Titus Young (no longer with the team) and Ryan Broyles (recovering from another significant injury). There's been talk this offseason that former undrafted FA Pat Edwards may have a chance to fill that role, but that seems pretty optimistic. So, the Lions have gone back to the free agent market to look for some help.
