Eric Ebron: Lions’ offense “should take it to a whole new level”


Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron says there’s so much talent in Detroit that the Lions’ offense could be like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

The options are — it’s insane,” Ebron told the Detroit Free Press. “The things that we’re going to do, the things that he has in store for me, other draftees and the guys that’s already there, we should take it to a whole new level, we hope.”

Ebron said the attention that Lions receiver Calvin Johnson draws from opposing defenses means Ebron and other receivers will have plenty of opportunities to get open.

“I’m here to help Calvin out,” Ebron said. “Calvin gets a million and one double teams a game, so hopefully, I can be that X factor in the middle of the field that frees Calvin up so he can do what he does and it’ll make our offense that much better.”

With the addition of Ebron and the presence of Megatron, plus the signing of Golden Tate and the presence of running backs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell, few teams have as much talent at the skill positions as the Lions. There’s really no excuse for them not to take their offense to the next level.
