4 players the Lions should target in free agency.

14 or 15 per. Would be crazy money for a rb. He is wanting huge money.

Lions have the space for it. Can still make it a smart contract with some fluff

I would like to get him just to see if it's actually a running back problem or the blocking/scheme

Don't want a Demarco Murray eagles situation though

That would be nuts lol. We can only dream, right?! We got the money though and Big Ben could retire. Yaaaa never know lol.
Definitely need to drop some coin tho. Ansah, Ebron and Tate all coming up $$ as well. Some big decisions....

I say pass on Ansah at the tag price. He either comes on a one-year "prove it" deal, or let him walk.

He's an excellent player, but thus far what he's really proven is he doesn't stay healthy. 12 sacks is awesome... except that 9 of them came in three games, and three of them came in 11 games.

He hasn't shown me the consistency to be given 17 million.

No way he signs a one yr deal unless he's getting tagged.
