Lions possible Offseason Scenario

Resign Suh - $11 mil for 5 years - The lions need to re sign Suh for many reasons 1. He is a dominant DT 2. $22 mil in cap hurts us 3. Cutting him would be 22 in dead money

Resign Bell - $1.5 mil for 3 years - Bells a great RB great complement to Reggie Bush. Plus some teams would kill to have him as a starter so a 50/50 split with bush would be great. Awesome on 3/4th down and short situations can also fight for essential yards with good speed.

Resign Ross - $750k for 2 years - Great return guy who could get major returns. Could be used as slot guy if he can be developed or given a chance. Nice speed also

Resign Don Mulbach - $900k for 3 years -Long snapper Don has been good making very few if any mistakes could be cut and bring in someone else on the roster who can but he is a vet and good

Release Matt Veldman $9.0 Million - Brandon Pettigrew $3.4 Million - Shaun Hill $3.2 Million - Other FAs that have smaller releases of cap and not very important ( besides Jason fox )

Free Agency

Sign Charles Tillman CB $4.5 million for 2 years - If a player doesn't Play well our coaches will bench them and they made that clear

Sign Jermichael Finley TE $7.5 million for 3 years - Although I'm a fan of Joe Fauria he isn't the best blocker and Finley can and is good at catching plus we could still use Fauria when we run Dual TE formations or Redzone uses although I'd like to see Fauria between the 20's


Round One: HaSean Clinton-Dix FS - Well Sammy Watkins is gone 9/10 times and Khalil Mack could be gone and I believe he goes in this scenario. I'm not a fan of Mike Evans, Marquis Lee, Anthony Barr, or any CB at 10.With Delmas having a possibility of being cut getting a top S wouldn't hurt especially with HHCD being a great talent

Round Two: Kyle Van Noy OLB - If Ryan Shazier is gone which he will most likely be OLB is a big need since Levy is good in coverage but not very good in the pass rush. Plus getting a guy that's good with sacks, strips, and TFLs I'm sure the lions are looking for more of those

Round Three: Jared Abbredervis WR - At 6"1 189 pounds Jared has decent size and speed with 4.52 second 40 yard dash and decent hands for a third rounder he could be a #2 WR or #3 if they pickup a #2 in the FA. Overall a good pick for Wide out.

Round Four: Donte Moncrief WR - at 6"2 226 pounds he has good size with good speed at 4.49 40 yard dash he has decent hands to be a #2 #3 or #4 Wide receiver projected to go 3-4 round

Round Four: COMPENSARY PICK: Craig Loston SS - Good Player although SS isn't a pressing need it is good for depth and he could be a major steal for the lions although they could get a Kicker or Center here I feel Loston is a good talent for the 4th to pass up

Round Six: Chris Boswell K - Boswell is the best kicker in the draft and us releasing Akers it could be nice to get a guy that can kick a 45+ yard Field Goal that he wasn't able to. Plus a Kickatron or Hanson 2.0 could be born

Round Seven: Gabe Ikard C - it would be nice to get a guy to develop under Riaola and taking a 7th rounder would be better than a 3/4 th because he won't be a starter

So tell me what you like/dislike and tell me what u would want different
