Ebron had been a big disappointment for Detroit, which used a No. 10 overall pick to land him in the 2014 NFL Draft. His most productive receiving season came in 2016 when he caught 61 passes for 711 yards and a touchdown. This past season he hauled in 53 passes for 574 yards and four touchdowns.
The Lions recently released Ebron, making him a free agent. Now he’s cashing in on a likely incentive-laden contract and could have a big impact as a go-to receiver for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts offense.
