Detroit's Jamal Agnew converting to wide receiver
According to NBC Sports, the Detroit Lions "plan to use Jamal Agnew exclusively at receiver this season".
Agnew will move from cornerback to receiver after displaying intriguing potential as a returner and logging a brief amount of offensive snaps last season. Expect the former fifth round pick to play a similar role on special teams in addition to backup receiver responsibilities.
On seven career touches, Agnew has produced 51 scrimmage yards and four first downs.
