An Update for the Hargrove Fanatics


There has been a lot of talk lately about the Lions and their interest in a DE/DT from New Orleans, Anthony Hargrove. He is a restricted Free Agent with a third round tender, meaning the Lions would have to give up the #66 pick this year [unless they can negotiate something lower] and put together a contract that the Saints would not match.

Here is a link to the story in the National Football Post:

I am not sure about this move. Hargrove has been suspended for violating the drug policy twice. He was clean all of 2009 and his teammates on the Saints voted him their Ed Block Courage Award. He is listed as 6' 3" and 272 pounds yet apparently played a lot as a DT. Primarily as a pass rush specialist I guess.

"What he is now is an end who moves down to a rush role. He's a really athletic guy. He would fit in both of those roles.'  -  Jim Schwartz


I don't like giving up that third round pick as there will be a lot of excellent prospects available there. Strangely, the article indicates that the Lions would still select a DT at # 2 to complete their D Line makeover.  Personally, I am not buying it. If they sign Hargrove I think all the DEs and DTs are off the board and the # 2 pick looks to be either Okung or Berry. Or the Trade Down Fantasy.
