Is White really worth $29 million over 5 years??

LOL suckers. I was pissed when I saw your headline, but then I saw the contract :D. All signs point to them drafting Quinn right now.

How much more of a need does that make DE for us.. I know we signed Chukwarah, but he isn't an every down DE.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see us take 2 DEs on Day One. We prioritize them highly, and I don't know what guys we can still get in FA that can actually contribute. There's Kerney.....

Almost $5 mil a year to a guy who only started 8 or so games?

This is why the Lions are perennial losers. James Hall is way better than White.

DE is a big need, I'd be surprised if we didn't get 1 in day 1 and we could easily get 2. If we don't get any we still have Rice, the guy still can play well if he's not injured.

White deserved that deal, and Gruden and Kiffin made a mistake here. Rice is the one who is drastically overpaid but nobody mentions that. White is much younger, and much more consistent. O and he's more versatile than Rice. Rice is a pass rush specialist who is inconsistent, gets dominated by above average LT, doesnt get big rushes on 3rd downs and doenst make drive stopping sacks in the 4thg quarter when we need them

White is a playmaker, and every time he ever saw the field he ws making plays. He only started 8 games last year, but he led the team in sacks. And a couple years ago he had atleast .5 sack in 6 straight games.

We shall see but those are my views on WHite and Rice
