Ranking Detroit Lions free agents by fans’ desire to re-sign

New, comments

Who do fans want the Lions to re-sign? We asked, you answered.

Over the past month or so, we’ve profiled the 16 Detroit Lions players set to become free agents at the start of the new league year in March. We’ve made the case for keeping each player, and the case for moving on. We’ve also ended each article with a poll so that Lions fans can give their overall take on whether these players should stay in Detroit or go.

With free agency just a month away, let’s take a look at all 16 players and rank them by how you all want to re-sign each Lion.

Before we get into the results, I just want to note that certain polls were a bit irregular to seek more interesting data. For example, it’s obvious that most Lions fans want the team to re-sign Graham Glasgow. So, instead, we did a poll on how much fans were willing to spend on Glasgow instead of a straight re-sign-or-don’t poll. Those poll results are at the bottom and not included in the rankings.
