Lions Free Agency and Off Season News Tuesday, March 11, 2014 9:27 AM (permalink)
I'm reading the Lions are looking to grab a WR and Safety in Free Agency when it starts this afternoon. Who would you like them to get?

Their needs at CB, LB and OL will hopefully be picked up on the draft.

Go Lions!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

    Suh took his time signing with an agent,so our cap numbers are screwed up because no deal was done.
    My never gonna happen wish list:
    WR Avant
    Safety Jarius Byrd or TJ Ward
    CB Cromartie
    Thanks a bunch Suh

      Hearing a lot of rumblings about TJ Ward at safety and James Jones, Emmanuel Sanders at WR.
       
      I like Ward but the WR rumors aren't game changers. I would have LOVED to sign Maclin and would still be happy with Andre Roberts. I don't want to draft a WR high.
       
      I`m warming up to the idea of drafting Justin Gilbert at 10.

        Roberts signed with the Redskins for $4 million a year. Waaay to expensive for the Lions cap.
         
        Having Stafford, Suh, and Megatron tied up in big deals is KILLER. One has to go IMO, we have zero flexibility.

          I think regardless we need to go LB or DB at #10…defense all the way with that pick.

          Go Lions!!

            Suh is probably the most likely to go…although we could also restructure his deal. All 3 should probably restructure their deals, IMO.

              We got into the mess we're currently in by restructuring deals. Stafford, Megatron, and Suh all had the bulk of their deals pushed to the later years of the contract to save us money on the front end. The real issue is that we drafted Stafford before the rookie wage scale kicked in. He was the last of the mega QBs rookie deals and now we're paralyzed.
               
              I`d rather dump Stafford than Suh but QBs have way more value than DTs. At least Suh is a pro-bowler.

                  Joique Bell agrees to 3-year, $9.3M contract with Detroit. That's too much IMO.

                        OT: Jeebus Christ, have you seen what is going on with the Broncos? Landing Ward, Talib, and Ware?

                          Tate deal works out to $6million a year but only $13 is guaranteed. I'm betting it's backloaded and Tate never makes it to year 5.

                          Good grab though, some of the best hands in the league and can return kicks. Keeps the Lions from blowing a draft pick.

                              Only way I think they blow it is if Watkins slips to 10 (which I don't think he will). Otherwise you guys should land wither Dennard or Gilbert.

                                Good get. Your're right there is no way Watkins drops to 10th. Best player in the draft.

                                  Ya it was a good move by Detroit to address WR in free agency. Now they can use the 10th pick for a CB.

                                      I wouldn't bank on a CB at #10, though I think if forced they would take Gilbert. Mayhew was out watching UCLA OLB Anothony Barr on the first day of FA and with Delmas gone I would bank on Haha Clinton-Dix being in play as well. CB is actually pretty deep this year, I wouldn't be made if we wanted to the 2nd or 3rd to take one.
                                       
                                      Best case scenario IMO is the Lions trade down and take Haha somewhere in the 13-17 range. Worst case we stand pat at #10 and take Gilbert or Barr.
                                       
                                      Signing Tate takes a WR off the board hopefully so we can focus on defense.
                                       
                                      As of the moment we have no starting FS, DE, or TE and have major needs at CB and OLB.
