Lions notes: The free agent market grows

A few free agents Detroit may be interested in officially hit the market. Yesterday the NFL franchise tag window officially opened and some teams have already made their decisions regarding who does or does not get the tag. Today a few bombshells dropped that will change the entire free agency landscape. Washington edge rusher Preston Smith has been one of the rising names in free agency in recent weeks, and as Fansided’s Matt Vederame reported Wednesday, his team will most likely let him hit the open market. The #Redskins are highly unlikely to tag Preston Smith, per source. Smith,...

Pride of Detroit Awards: Lions Defensive Player of the Year

Who was the best defensive player of the year? 2018 wasn’t a great year for the Detroit Lions defensively. While they finished a respectable 16th in points allowed, just about every other stat indicated a disaster season. But by the end of the year, there was some real reasons for hope. The Lions held five of their last seven opponents below 25 points and their run defense became one of the best in the entire NFL. There was one big reason for that, but there were also a few other Lions players that deserve some recognition. So here are the 2018 candidates for Lions Defensive Player of...

How much would you pay to retain Ezekiel Ansah?

How much would you pay to retain Ezekiel Ansah?

Detroit needs an elite defensive end, but do they already have one? It is no secret that the Detroit Lions will be looking for a top end edge defender this offseason. The New England Patriots Trey Flowers has been a popular name on the lips of Detroit fans for months and Florida’s Jachai Polite has been a popular pick up for the Lions in mock drafts.

Lions Notes: Fans, writers say the Lions should consider going for Antonio Brown

Is the star receiver worth the risk? As the saga of Antonio Brown continues, a few area writers -- and fans of course -- are wondering if the outspoken star wide receiver could have a place in the Motor City. Shawn Windsor of the Detroit Free Press writes that Brown’s $15 million price tag next year, followed by about $11 million the following year and $12 million after that, may just be worth what he could do for the Lions offense. He understands the risk of Brown’s effect on the locker room, but argues the Lions’ culture should be strong enough to withstand his strong personality....
