Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter met with WKU TE Deon Yelder at his pro day

The Lions haven’t let up in working out any and all tight ends, with the Lions OC himself working out one at Western Kentucky’s pro day. Despite signing both Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo, the Detroit Lions have indicated they are not even close to done correcting the lack of depth they have at the tight end position. The team has either had meetings with or conducted private workouts with at least six mid-to-late-round tight end prospects at pro days, and those are just the ones we’ve been able to see reported from a front office that has been extremely tight lipped this offseason....

What is the Falcons’ second biggest draft need?

What is the Falcons’ second biggest draft need?

After the first wave of free agency, we know the Falcons have a big need at DT. But what is Atlanta’s second biggest need in the 2018 NFL Draft? With the bulk of free agency in the rear view mirror, the Falcons have managed to add a few contributors and shore up the depth at several positions of need. The team took care of one of the biggest question marks on the roster—guard—with the addition of Brandon Fusco. After moving on from Levine Toilolo, the team signed an affordable and competent blocking TE to replace him in Logan Paulsen. Defensive lineman Derrick Shelby was brought back...

Why did the Falcons bring Derrick Shelby back?

Why did the Falcons bring Derrick Shelby back?

It’s not a question of on-field talent, it’s a question of cost. The Falcons telegraphed letting Adrian Clayborn, Taylor Gabriel, and Dontari Poe walk, so those weren’t true surprises. Cutting ties with Levine Toilolo was a bit surprising, too, but given production versus contract, it was fairly understandable. Cutting Derrick Shelby, though? That was a bit of a surprise. There’s little point in arguing that Shelby, with his 2016 injury woes and fairly one-dimensional skill set in Atlanta, would have been a crushing loss had the Falcons had a replacement ready. But it’s also true...

Albert Breer makes the worst Atlanta Falcons mock draft selection my eyes have ever seen

Albert Breer makes the worst Atlanta Falcons mock draft selection my eyes have ever seen

What in the hell happened here? The Atlanta Falcons have had a pretty easy to follow offseason. They have made an effort to keep their own players, and there has not been much turnover. The biggest changes have been along the defensive line. DE/DT Adrian Clayborn left for more money with the New England Patriots. DT Dontari Poe left for more money with the Carolina Panthers. DE/DT Derrick Shelby. DE/DT Courtney Upshaw has not been re-signed. It is pretty clear that they lost a lot along the defensive line. The only other major loss was cutting TE Levine Toilolo. We were not sure what the...

Open thread: Which TE should the Lions sign in free agency?

Open thread: Which TE should the Lions sign in free agency?

Detroit has met with several tight ends in free agency. With Darren Fells and Eric Ebron signed elsewhere for 2018, the Detroit Lions are in serious need of a tight end acquisition... and they know it. They have already brought in four different tight ends for visits in the first week of free agency, and it seems like a signing could be imminent. Here’s a look at the four tight ends currently in the running for the Detroit job: Brent Celek Luke Willson Logan Paulsen Levine Toilolo Today’s Question of the Day is: Which tight end do you want the Detroit Lions to sign?
