    • Tulloch and Chris Carr? or maybe we spend that money on a Guard instead?

      • David Joseph just got signed. My dream of Peterman being replaced is dead.

        I don't think Carr is good enough.

        Richard Marshall or Nate Clements or Chris Houston

        • They should go after Cromartie. Not a mega deal though. Sign Cro, Barnett/Tulloch, and an OL.

          • No Cromartie.

            • Cromartie played great last year. He's kind of dumb but has never been in trouble with the law or anything.

              • Name of CB-How I see things happening.
                Nnamdi Asomugha- Do the Eagles still have the money? if not then the 49ers or Jets.
                Brent Grimes (RFA)- Falcons
                Antonio Cromartie- probably back with the Jets
                Brandon Carr (RFA)-Chiefs
                Chris Carr-Ravens

                Which leaves us with these guys.

                Richard Marshall
                Carlos Rogers
                Eric Wright
                Chris Houston

                I think we can get Houston back at a reasonable rate. I would kinda like to have two of them, but we'll see.

                The Lions are very high on Aaron Berry and Jack Williams. Aaron Berry was hurt in first game(he had an INT earlier that game) and missed most of the year. He could actually become a legitimate starter for us. The problem is that we need a veteran to help stabilize them since "could actually" is different from "is" a legitimate starter. I think Houston might be all we need.

                Houston/Berry/Smith/Williams with Vasher and Spievey able to shuffle around at corner and safety.

                If we don't go big with an Aso type of player, then just bring Houston back and develop our guys.

                  Lions agreed to terms with CB Eric Wright, formerly of the Browns.
                  Not exactly Nnamdi Asomugha or Johnathan Joseph. Wright absolutely possesses starting-caliber talent, but his confidence has been shot since being burned by Anquan Boldin for three TDs early last season. He's just 26, so the Lions will consider him sort of a rehab project. He'll be given every opportunity to start.

                  • Congrats on signing Wright. He's a very good player who just didn't have the best season last year. The three years before that he looked like he was on pace to be one of the best corners in the league. I was really hoping we would keep him in Cleveland but none-the-less he's gone due to some internal issues (per a known family member of his on a Browns board). Only knock on him is that he's not the best tackler.

                    Let's get some activity going in the Cleveland sub-forum!

                    • Bears are probably going to sign Roy Williams. I would love to see Delmas light him up. Hopefully the Niners sign Kreutz away from them as well.

                      Eric Wright is a good pick up. The Browns lacked a pass rush last year and I think it was part of the problem. I'm debating over if they should bring back Chris Houston or not.

                      • Eric Wright has some potential. One starter down, one to go. Richard Marshall or Houston would work for me.

                        • Josh Wilson signed a 3 year $13.5 mil deal which should have set the market for Wright's deal. We'll say a $4 mil cap hit. thenetrat had us at $11.6 mil under. I think we can grab Tulloch and then have plenty of money to spend throughout the year on pickups.

                          • Hmm...Alphonso Smith's broken foot might be enough to want Houston back too.

                            http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/pos...hs-broken-foot

                            He said he'd be ready to start the regular season, but I still don't like a guy weakened and getting burned for the first 5 weeks because of it.

                              It may seem like an under-the-radar acquisition, but Durant is a true thumper now playing behind a devastating defensive front. He played well at middle linebacker and on the weak side in Jacksonville, so it's not clear where he'll start out in Detroit. If Durant can stay healthy, he's a key piece in the Lions' revamped defense. Beat writer Tom Kowalski doesn't believe a Durant signing has any impact on a potential Stephen Tulloch addition.

                              IMO, this is a very solid pickup, add in Wright and the defense just gets better and better.
                              Of course, we have to pray Stafford stays healthy or it won't mean much. I hear Backus is banged up, not a good omen.
                              And proud of it!!!

                              • Nick Barnett is being linked with the Lions. Levy/Barnett/Durant would be a very solid LB corps.
