defensive end Ziggy Ansah on i Antworten

Here are five players the Lions could still add to help their 2019 squad."The NFL Draft is over and now beings the last wave for free agency. With compensatory pick calculations no longer part of the equation Jahlani Tavai Detroit Lions Jersey , some of the best free agents should be expected to come off the market soon. In fact, we’ve already seen Ezekiel Ansah find a new home in Seattle.The Detroit Lions have a good share of 2019 cap space left—literally enough to sign any of the remaining players. Whether they want to hang onto that money for 2020 or for upcoming contract extensions remains to be seen. However, let’s dream a little bit. Here are five remaining free agents the Lions should consider signing.WR Dontrelle InmanWide receiver depth is currently lacking with this team. Yes, they drafted Travis Fulgham, but if Marvin Jones Jr. or Kenny Golladay suffer an injury, I’m not sure the Lions want a sixth-round rookie from Old Dominion stepping in immediately.Inman isn’t exactly a stud, but he fits the profile of an outside receiver Detroit could use for depth. In fact, Pro Football Focus listed Detroit as an ideal landing place for Inman.“Inman turned in a career performance in the Colts’ Divisional Playoff matchup with the Chiefs this past season, earning a career-high 89.8 single-game grade,” PFF’s Mike Johnson wrote. “Though he is entering the 2019 season at 30 years old, the 6-foot-3 Jahlani Tavai Jersey 2019 , 205-pound Inman offers value as a short-term solution for a team such as Detroit, a team that needs depth at outside wide receiver.’CB Morris ClaiborneThe Lions outside corner position opposite Darius Slay is again up for grabs. Detroit may believe Rashaan Melvin could be a stopgap while Amani Oruwariye could be their future, but the team could undoubtedly use a little more friendly competition for 2019. Claiborne is coming off an up-and-down season with the Jets. He recorded a career-high 14 passes defended, but his PFF grade of 62.7 ranked just 75th among 112 qualifying corners. Jamie CollinsI made the argument for Jamie Collins back in March, and I still stand by it. Linebacker is arguably the team’s biggest need, and Detroit is currently lacking a veteran at that position with extensive knowledge of Matt Patricia’s system.What better way to help second-round pick Jahlani Tavai progress quickly and reach his full potential than to have a mentor in the room from the beginning? Of course, Collins would also bring some much-needed depth to Detroit’s thinnest position. The only thing standing in the way of this no-duh signing is Collins himself. He left New England with a pretty bad reputation, and Patricia knows it. If Collins has changed his ways or if the discontent was overreported, Bob Quinn should pick up the phone yesterday. Andy LevitreThe Lions’ current competition for a right guard starting job is uninspiring, at best. Levitre is coming off a torn tricep injury that caused him to miss almost all of the 2018 season, but if he’s healthy enough Youth Jahlani Tavai Jersey , the soon-to-be 33-year-old guard could come in and immediately compete for a starting spot.There’s one pretty big problem with Levitre, though: he’s played on the left side his entire career. If Detroit were to add Levitre, they may want to consider moving Frank Ragnow to the right side. Ragnow played right guard during his sophomore season at Arkansas and it’s still early in his NFL career, so it wouldn’t be a crazy move. But for a player the Lions would likely sign to a one-year deal, it may be too much shuffling for Detroit to take on. Ndamukong SuhDefensive tackle isn’t exactly a huge need for the Lions, but adding Suh would just make Detroit’s defensive line even more stacked. It would be an interesting reunion and one the Lions could definitely afford. The Lions could still use another playmaker or two on defense, and if it could keep everyone else in the defensive line rotation a little more fresh, I say why not? ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — No, Glover Quin isn’t worrying about Detroit’s draft position for next season.The Lions are 5-8 and in last place in the NFC North, but last weekend White Jahlani Tavai Jersey , they went on the road and beat Arizona .Next up is a trip to Buffalo for another winnable game, so talk radio has been ablaze with chatter about whether more victories are even desirable at this point.Quin, a veteran safety for the Lions, was actually asked about the topic in the locker room this week.“We go out and try to win every game,” he said.Quin was merely stating the obvious, and for now at least, Detroit has an easy response to any questions about tanking: The Lions haven’t even been eliminated from the playoff chase yet. Their chances are certainly slim, but right now Minnesota is the team occupying the last postseason spot in the NFC, and the Vikings are only 6-6-1.Carolina (6-7) has lost five straight games. Washington (6-7) has dropped four in a row and appears to be unraveling. Philadelphia (6-7) has a tough game coming up against the Rams. Green Bay (5-7-1) already fired its coach.The Lions have been a disappointment this season, and they have significant injury issues on both sides of the ball, but if they can beat the Bills Jahlani Tavai Jersey Mens , that would set up a home game against Minnesota that might actually mean something.Quin is aware of the playoff scenarios, even if he tries not to dwell on them.“I’ve seen it. Obviously, I’m not blind, I’m not oblivious to the fact. I’m not dumb either. I kind of understand. I can look at the records and say, OK, well this is kind of how it’s going to play out,” Quin said. “None of that stuff matters if we don’t take care of our business, so we’ve got to win out.”Detroit has been without rookie running back Kerryon Johnson for the past three games because of a knee injury, and the team put defensive end Ziggy Ansah on injured reserve this week. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has continued to play, but he’s been dealing with back issues.Just beating Buffalo on the road may be a challenge, and then the Lions have divisional games against Minnesota and Green Bay to get through after that.“Just the continual improvement of the team is what we’re looking for Kenny Golladay Jersey ,” first-year coach Matt Patricia said. “Maybe we can keep trying to string some things together or tie some new things on our list into the things that we’ve improved on and get better overall as a team. That’s really our main goal and hopefully put ourselves in position to go win.”It is no longer possible for the Lions to match their 9-7 mark from the 2017 regular season, but the bar is being set pretty low in this year’s postseason race. So Detroit still has a chance.And as Quin assured reporters, the players will definitely be playing to win.“Nobody goes out there and just tries to get beat up on,” Quin said. “If you’re going to tank in something, you tank in basketball or baseball, where it’s not physical. You go out on the football field tanking, you’re going to get yourself hurt.”NOTES: Johnson did not practice Thursday. Neither did WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring), DE Da’Shawn Hand (knee), T Rick Wagner (concussion) and DB Charles Washington (hamstring).
