The Detroit Lions have done a nice job to draft and develop talent the last few years, and their work could be showing itself most with Amon-Ra St. Brown.
Detroit’s second-year wideout has taken a major step forward with a pair of big performances this season one of which was historic, and as a result, he’s starting to get on radars in a huge way across the league.
Heavy.com NFL insider Matt Lombardo was watching closely on Sunday, September 18. What he saw from St. Brown left him excited enough to label the wideout as a breakout star of the day.
As he wrote, St. Brown’s big performance puts him firmly on NFL radars as a major weapon.
“St. Brown, whose first name means “Sun God,” is a household name in the making. Sunday’s performance was a major step in that direction for the versatile second-year receiver. Against the Commanders, St. Brown did a bit of everything catching a game-high 9-of-12 targets for 116 yards with 2 touchdowns and adding a game-high 68 rushing yards. St. Brown can do it all, and he just might be the future of the Lions’ offense,” Lombardo wrote.
It’s true that St. Brown could be the future of the Detroit offense. The Lions have given him a chance to showcase his talents in plenty of ways and he has run with it. The more he can do, the better St. Brown will be in terms of making a name for himself.
Already, St. Brown as a star is one of the prevailing opinions of former NFL players like Golden Tate, who shared that opinion after Week 2.
For the Lions, this is great news. St. Brown becoming a star will be a big boost to their roster as well as their resurgent offense.
St. Brown Made Huge Plays for Lions
It was a big day for St. Brown, and it started quickly during the afternoon. Early in the first half, he big play for the Detroit offense, catching a pass to get the team going and get the Lions in the end zone.
