The Detroit Lions will reportedly sign former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark to a one-year deal.

The Lions were looking to add a playmaking wide receiver this offseason, and Chark fits the bill. NFL Network reports the deal is worth $10 million, fully guaranteed.

Chark played only four games last season, racking up 154 yards and two touchdowns. Chark’s best season was in 2019, when he had 1,008 yards receiving and scored eight touchdowns.

Chark, 25, is 6′4″ and was drafted in the second round out of LSU back in 2018.
