5 free agent DT targets with ties to the Detroit Lions

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Defensive tackle could be one of Detroit’s bigger needs in free agency. Here are five players that could help. Last week, Chris Spielman, the Detroit Lions’ special assistant to owner Sheila Ford Hamp and team president Rod Wood, told local radio station 97.1 The Ticket that he believed the team needs to beef up their defensive line. The Lions may want to focus that effort on the defensive interior. With both Danny Shelton and Nick Williams saving the Lions $4 million each as potential cap casualties, the Lions may look very different...

Predicting Lions offseason: How tough will it be to field a viable 2021 team?

This is why they get paid the big bucks and not us As the start of the official tampering period on March 15 approaches, Detroit Lions fans will finally get a better look at the team we will be watching in the fall. Free agent signings in March will give us an idea of team needs heading into the draft in April, and the types of players signed should provide hints about the offensive and defensive systems the team ends up using in 2021. The main issue with free agency for the Lions this year, is that they have very little cap flexibility to work with. To understand how wild this...

2020 Detroit Lions awards: Offensive Player of the Year

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Who among these 6 candidates deserves the award? Despite the Detroit Lions’ highly disappointing 2020 season, there were a lot of things to like about their offense. The offensive line took a big step towards being a good—if not, great—unit. Their tight end took the Year 2 jump many were hoping for. And the Lions may have finally added the play-making running back they’ve been seeking for over two decades. As a result, we have six nominees for Detroit Lions Offensive Player of the Year.

Report: Lions likely traveling to Denver Broncos for 17th game in 2021

Report: Lions likely traveling to Denver Broncos for 17th game in 2021

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Lions and Broncos appear likely to face off in 2021 In Peter King’s most recent Football Morning in America article, he reported some new details on the NFL potentially adding a 17th game to the 2021 schedule, calling the likelihood of an extra game being added “highly likely”. King notes that, if a 17th game is added, the league calendar would be pushed back a week, and the regular season would see 17 games played over 18 weeks—meaning there would not be a second bye week as was previously rumored. The formula for determining...

Open thread: Which prospect should the Lions avoid in the draft?

Photo by Randy Litzinger/Icon Sportswire via Which player is the opposite of a draft crush? So many players, so few picks. The Detroit Lions are (likely) entering a rebuild phase, and that means the coming years will be focused on stockpiling assets, both draft picks and young talent. The Lions have the valuable seventh overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and there are plenty of directions they could go. With multiple highly rated quarterbacks, the Lions could look for the heir apparent for Matthew Stafford—if Jared Goff is nothing more than a stopgap. Equally...

Lions new regime must avoid second-round draft busts

In recent years, the Detroit Lions have struggled to find solid contributors in the second round of the NFL draft.

Will the Lions make quarterback Trey Lance their top draft pick?

The Detroit Lions kicked off their retooling with a bang, trading quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for a boatload of draft capital and a Pro Bowl passer in Jared Goff. But does Goff’s presence prevent the Lions from drafting a quarterback with their top pick in 2021?

The Lions appear to be taking a modern approach to team building

Jeff Nguyen (Detroit Lions) Exploring what building from the outside in would look like this offseason For decades, NFL teams have built their rosters by investing significant capital in players closest to the ball, and in turn, placing a reduced value on players farther away from it. This ideology matched scheme concepts at the time, where executing a bruising offense was valued over the passing game. Currently, the NFL is very much a passing league, but only recently have we seen franchises making conscious efforts to move away from old strategies in team...

The Detroit Lions are rebuilding.

Open thread: Who is the best non-QB option for the Lions at 7?

Photo by Sam Greenwood/ If not QB, then what? Whether Brad Holmes wants to admit it or not, the Detroit Lions are in rebuild mode, which means they’ve got a lot of holes to patch up and it’ll be at least a couple years before we’re talking about contending. Many would love for the Lions to go after their next franchise QB at seventh overall, but several draft experts are expecting the Lions to address either a wide receiver or linebacker at this point. There are plenty of non-QBs on the board that the Lions should seriously consider going after, including, but not...
