Lions Free Agency (Players to go after?)

Possible Players!!!

A look at some players the Lions could pursue in the 2012 offseason!


Cortland Finnegan (TEN) - Finnegan has been a top 10 corner for much of his career. He's strong in run support and solid in coverage. Played under Schwartz in Tennessee.

Terrell Thomas (NYG) - Thomas was an above average number two cornerback prior to suffering a season-ending injury. Physical Corner, if recovered, he could be a solid pickup

Brandon Carr (KC) - Carr was a potential breakout player and the Chiefs were poised to have one of the best cornerback tandems in the league. He struggled this season, but he will be looking for a rebound!

Richard Marshall (ARZ), Kelly Jennings (CIN), Rashean Mathis (JAC)


Michael Griffin (TEN) - Michael Griffin, who has gone from being Pro Bowl caliber to below average and back up again. Still, when he plays hot, the whole defense plays a lot better! Another player who was under Schwartz.

Tyvon Branch (OAK) -Solid Strong Safety, physical

Gerald Sensabaugh (DAL)- Another solid safety, does get beat at times, but makes up for it'

Brodney Pool (NYJ), Thomas DeCoud (ATL)


Jarret Johnson (BAL)- Very solid and underrated, fits perfectly with the Lions D

E.J. Henderson (MIN) - Henderson had become one of the most underrated backers in the league, Very solid, and getting up there in age. Maybe looking for a team that has a chance to win in the next few years!

Erin Henderson (MIN)- Brother of EJ, did a decent job this year starting next to his brother and would maybe follow haha!

Wesley Woodyard (DEN), Quentin Groves (OAK)


Demetrius Bell (BUF) - OT - Bell is another under-the-radar player, very capable of protecting Staffords blindside, if backus is not brought back.

Dan Connolly (NE) - OG- Solid Guard, never hurts having a guy that can do this either

Levi Brown (ARZ) - OT- Another solid tackle, started 16 games this season for the cardinals.

Deuce Lutui (ARZ) - OG, Casey Wiegmann (KC) - OC

Just an early look at some possible players, let me know your opinions!
