  1. Darby/ Harris

    So the bottom quarter of my post is what you key in on? I said "like this" to begin with.... you're a real savage.
  2. Darby/ Harris

    It seems that way... but Harris played in a similar system. All scouting reports lead one to believe he was a perfect compliment to Shelton.
  3. Darby/ Harris

    I'm fine with the Geronimo Allison signing as WR depth.... but how did we miss out on Ronald Darby for $4 mil or Shelby Harris for $3.25 mil? I get that they have to want to sign here, but I know Harris in particular was out for the money, he couldn't be had for a $1mil more to come to Detroit? Signings like this are what make deep, championship rosters...
  4. Lions Pick at 3

    I think Chase Young is a real possibility. I think Quinn knows the value of a Franchise QB and knows any team in need will move up at all costs (#2 in this case) to get their guy, allowing Young to fall to us.
  5. Thoughts On Free Agency

    I have been growing frustrated with focus on ex- Pats.... this helps a bit. Thanks
  6. Lions sign OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai (5 year, $50 M)

    Maybe he's in play for a OG spot? Sounds like he can play 4 spots on the OL.
  7. Offseason Mock 2.0

    Spotrac now has us at $48,505,8889. The Rookie Class should cost us about $10.9 mil, leaving us with $37,605,888. I would also cut R. Okwara for and additional $2.12 mil in saving for a grand total of $39,725,888 in cap space for free agency. Resign: T. Wilson: 2 yrs, 8 mil $4 mil guaranteed (3,5) M. Killebrew: 2yrs, 2 mil J. McKissic: 2 yr, 3 mil M. Ford: 1 yr, $550k K. Wiggins: 1 yr , 3 mil --------------- $9.05 $30,675,888 Sign: Michael Pierce: 3 yrs, $24 mil $12 guaranteed (5,8,11) J. Pierre- Paul: 1 yr, $8 Daryl Worley: 2 years, 14 mil $6 guaranteed (5,9) Daryl Williams: 1yr, 7 mil ---------------- $25 mil Leaves us with $5.6 mil left over, but our bases are covered with CB2, DT, DE/ OLB, RT/ OG. Draft: 1(3): Chase Young, DE 2 (35): Denzell Mims, WR 3 (67): Jaylon Johnson, CB 4 (109) Leki Fotu, DT 5 (149) Robert Hunt, OT 5 (172) Logan Wilson, LB 6 (182) Antonio Gibson, RB/ WR
  8. Lions released Rick Wagner.

    The 5th year option for an Offensive lineman would be $11-12 mil. They could have picked it up and still had more cap space than us, with less holes to fill. I do believe Conklin is an upgrade to Wagner, but I get the argument that he is not worth top dollar. Tennessee might have seen something a PFF score might not translate.
  9. Lions released Rick Wagner.

    Looking at the Titans, that is the team I think we want to be. Vrabel has done a fantastic job, even sticking it to Belichek in the playoffs using some of the cheater's old tricks against him.
  10. Lions released Rick Wagner.

    I guess..... but locking up a top 5 RT for below market value sounds like a win to me, especially to a team that relies as much as anyone on running the ball. Additionally, they have $64 mil in cap space.
  11. Lions released Rick Wagner.

    I wonder why Conklin's 5th year option wasn't picked up.
  12. TDN Mock Draft - March 10

    I heard Ron Rivera talking up Tagovailoa. He might not be confident in Haskins and looking to move on from him (which wouldn't be unprecedented). He could also be drumming up a blockbuster trade. One thing that is clear, franchise QB's (particularly on rookie contracts) are extremely valuable. All someone has to do is fall in love with Tua or even Herbert, they will pay the price to Washington.
  13. PFF Analytics Mock Draft (v1)

    I just said this in another post, but I really think we will get the chance to grab Chase Young. I really feel Tua is going #2. I really like Okudah as well, so I hope to happy with one of those two at #3. As far as Ruggs goes, he is actually my #1 WR, he's going to be awesome.
  14. TDN Mock Draft - March 10

    The more I think about it, the more I feel Chase Young is going to fall to us. I really believe Tua is going #2, and I don't see anyone going bonkers for Herbert/Love just yet.
  15. Players On The Roster Who Could Make A Big Jump

    Not much to debate in this post. I'm hoping for all of them to play well. Johnson and Hall provide our Offense with blazing speed which we sorely lack. Hopefully Bryant can step up opposite Flowers, I'm not sure our 2020 Starting DE is currently on the roster.
