The Detroit Lions can’t let this d-lineman slip away in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Why the Lions should let Ndamukong Suh walk

The Detroit Lions are reportedly pulling out all the stops to keep superstar defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in Motown. They should relent and allow him to leave via free agency. If Suh is not given the franchise tag by March 2 or signed by March 10, he will become a free agent. It would be nothing short of salary cap suicide to tag Suh, considering his number would be an outrageous...

Reggie Bush out in Detroit after disappointing 2014

When running back Reggie Bush joined the Detroit Lions in 2013, he made the most of it with a career-high 1,512 yards from scrimmage. Fast forward to his injury-plagued 2014 season with a mere 297 rushing yards on 76 attempts, the Lions understandably decided to free up his $3.25 million 2015 salary.

Now that the Detroit Lions have officially released running back Reggie Bush, he is free to sign with any team. It’s going to be interesting to see which teams show interest in a soon-to-be 30-year-old running back with injury issues.
