  • Lions to make a push at Justin Smith

    I was just watching a rerun of todays NFL Total Access, the Adam Scheffler chimed in and was discussing big offseason names... than when Justin Smiths name came up he really went into depth about how the lions were they most likely and by far the biggest push to get him.

    What do you guys think?

    As a Bengals fan I hope to god he does not return. He is the suck. Especially for what we paid him this season.

      Sounds good to me, but we can't give him a boatload of guaranteed money like Millen will want to.

      If we could eliminate DE as a need before the draft though, that would be huge.

        I think that Justin Smith would help us. Him and White at ends, that is a pretty decent duo.


        props to jkpigskin for the sweet Antonio Cromartie Sig

          What makes him very likely to come to us? I don't know much about him.

            And yes, eliminating DE as a need is huge.

              If the Bengals, with the worst defense of all recorded history, doesn't want to resign him.. Why should we want to bring him in? I'd much rather draft a DE.

                He's actually one of the good guys on that team. I guess he'd be considered a Marinelli type player, but he had just 2 sacks last year after averaging 7-8 sacks per season prior to last year. He should be the fallback option if we can't get Jared Allen or Terrell Suggs

                  Of course it'd be better to use a high draft pick on a DE, but we have millions of needs (yes, I said it, millions) that would require a top pick to fix.

                      For one there is no way Allen isn't being franchised and two there is pretty much no chance of signing Suggs.

                        Exactly. I hate this minimum length crap.

                            I would think the #1 thing stopping you guys would be baltimore franchising him. They freed up money with letting go adalius thomas this year and I think they plan on keeping suggs, they'd be foolish to let him go.

                              As a team that has face Justin Smith 2 times a year over his career, Id steer clear of him if I were the Lions.
