10 Predictions for Free Agency for the Lions

Free agency starts Tuesday in the NFL, and I thought that I would add my 2 cents worth in here, maybe give Martin some advice that he is sure to ignore. But this is what I think has a good chance to happen. Walterfootball.com , a site I read every day, recently did a mock draft for Free Agents, just for fun. I thought it was intelligently written, picks all made sense, but 1 thing that was very obvious. Out of the first 25 picks, 21 were defensive players, and the other 4 were offensive linemen. Thats because this free agency period is loaded on defense, and not very talented with offensive players. I think that the Lions know this, and therefore will concetrate on defense in free agancy. My Predictions! Sure to not come true BTW! 1. Someone will sign Brandon Pettigrew for about $20,000,000. and then in 2015 FA period, we will be hearing that they are thinking of letting him go as a cap casualty. Pettigrew is gone from Detroit. 2. Lions will sign Lance Moore, just makes too much sense. Wont be for big money, just 1 or 2 seasons. 3. Michael Bennett will be the highest paid FA this year, as Seattle and SF will have a bidding war over him. They compete over everything, and Frisco will drive up his price. No chance he is a Lion. 4. The Lions will sign either Byrd or Cleamons from Miami, probably very quickly in the signing period. This will be their biggest signing. I dont think they will go after Ward, but I wouold be OK with him if they did. I just think that the other 2 guys are better fits. 5. Mayhew will be patient at DE, waiting to see if there is a market for Willie Young. There will be, he will sign elsewhere. Too bad, he has developed into a very good player. We will sign 1 or 2 DEs later on, maybe even after the draft, but I dont see a day 1 DE signing. We do need a couple guys though, and the draft is weak here. Maybe Jerad Allen in a couple weeks? 6. Shaun Hill will resign with Detroit. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but I think we need him around. Tampa might also look at Hill. 7. Jason Fox will resign with the Lions. We cant just give away our talented Oline depth, and Fox hasnt been reliable yet, which is why he wont get big offers, but he is very talented. 8. We will sign a CB before the draft, but it wont be a big name. He will be someone who makes the team though. Maybe a slot corner type guy, might even be Mathis, but not necessarily. 9. We will not sign any WRs or TEs for big money. We will be drafting our main guys there.No Eric Deckers in Detroit, he will be way overpaid. 10. Lions will win the NFC North next year. They have by far the most talent, and they will learn to stop throwing away games with excessive turnovers. The Lions are more talented than the Packers or the Bears, its really not close. Hope Im right, at least on #10. PS My computer will not list these as a list, just one run on sentence like this. What am I doing wrong, looks stupid to me
