2023 NFL Free Agency, Live Updates: NFC North

5 min read
Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark lines up outside in the team's opening game of 2022.

In eleven games for the Lions in 2022, wide receiver DJ Chark averaged 16.7 yards per reception.

The 2023 NFC North free agency/offseason is about to pick up steam. The Chicago Bears traded the number one overall pick in this year’s draft to the Carolina Panthers and still contain a Top Ten pick with another first-rounder coming a year from now. There are several decisions facing teams over the next couple of weeks. Will Patrick Peterson return to Minnesota? Do the Lions retain wide receiver DJ Chark and running back Jamaal Williams? In Green Bay, how much would it hurt to lose perennial starting safety Adrian Amos? Please come back for more updates as this is a live document.
