Kevin Carter ... where art thou??
I know reports stated Detroit talking with with him several weeks ago but anyone know what's up these days? What do you all think of him as a Lion?

I know this would be his 15th year but here are his pluses if you are unfamiliar: he is a solid 40 tackle 4 sack average guy who is reliable to play almost every game. Plus he has a solid history with the Schwartz and is 6-6 305 and supposedly a phenomenal workout guy. So even if he skips camp he should be game ready (unlike a Grady Jackson). Oh do I even have to mention Dline might be our Achilles heel going into the season? (lol) I also just read NE Patriots are interested in signing him now, uh oh the smell of a ring may run us out of the bidding ...

Let me know, holler back.

Team president Tom Lewand says the Lions will "stay in touch" with free agent DL Kevin Carter during training camp. Lewand says the club's priority for now is getting its draft class signed. They have Derrick Williams, Louis Delmas, Brandon Pettigrew, and Sammie Hill left. No teams are beating down Carter's door, so Detroit can afford to wait.

draft picks signed ... check
camp started ... check
get Kevin Carter in the D ... ?

I'm not certain of all the details he & Mayhew discussed behind closed doors, but if he's a Patriot I'm going to be upset we did not lock him up when we had the chance before camp.

Well he didn't want to sign until two-a-days were over. So we wouldn't have locked him up till then anyway.

Apparently Carter has narrowed it down to the Lions and the Pats.

so he is wondering whether he wants a championship ring now, or set up a franchise so other young guys can win one later.

If Carter wants to start he will sign with Detroit. Might even play at DE now that DeVries is out for the season.

white at left and avril at right...aslong as one of those two don't get hurt we should be fine.

I can't possibly see Avril as an every down DE. Pass rush specialist yes but he isn't stout enough against the run.

he's grown quite a bit this offseason, but this will give him incentive to grow more.

6'3" 260lbs and growing

Hi Brandon Graham!

You aren't 1/9th the man that Carlos "Highly Talented" Dunlap is!!!

Shaun Smith is only a DE in a 3-4. For us he'll play DT, no doubt.

Carter should still be a possibility, if they get him I'll feel like we improved the DL from last year, though it still wouldn't be fantastic.

DE: Avril, D. White, Carter, maybe IAF or Fluellen

DT: Jackson, Smith, other 2 spots up for grabs between Cohen, Hill, Fluellen, Darby, Orien Harris.

Gerald McCoy is too close to Sam Bradford for my taste. It's all about Carlos Dunlap or Greg Hardy.

I still say we switch to a 3-4.

I'm confused are you saying that because he's a sooner or are you saying that because you think I'm talking about Colt McCoy?

Either that or convert him to FB.

Sooner. I'd also avoid Sergio Kindle because he's too close to Colt McCoy :(

He couldn't be any worse at 3-4 ILB than he is at 4-3 OLB.

i still wish henry would go to safety with delmas, then have us pick up chris mccallister to team with buchanon with eric king at nickel and keith smith filling in when mccallister gets injured halfway through the year.

Well, I think Henry will move to safety now that Daniel Bullocks is being 'shut down' again.
