The Rocky McIntosh signing?
Given how our LBs have looked, could be a big boost. He's certainly a solid tackler. He's had underwhelming numbers the last two seasons, and I honestly don't know if that's because of a lack of playing time or what, but he did have some solid production while in Washington.
He finished with 110 tackles in 2010, 94 tackles in 2009, and 87 tackles in each of the two seasons previous to that.
He's also someone who hits hard, and can jar the ball loose.
Maybe it's just because he's a former Cane, but I'm excited about this signing. He's certainly an upgrade over Ashlee Palmer, and I like Palmer.
Looks like the Lions management is sending some clear signals to the Lions defense that positions aren't safe, and play on Thursday was not satisfactory. They're also bringing in Rashean Mathis for a visit today.
