  • Al Wilson

    We pretty much have to sign this guy now. We didnt get a starting caliber LBer in this draft. I pray to god that we dont sign Quarles, he is like 35 years old or something. How did he survive in the Tampa 2 in Tampa. Isnt teh MLBer supposed to be atheltic???

    I don't believe Wilson is that healthy. That's why Denver cut him.
    And proud of it!!!

        I think he has a cronic neck condition which severely limits his current effectiveness but don't quote me on the body part as my memory isn't what it once was. I know he has some cronic condition that limits him now.

          I agree that we have to sign Wilson as well. However, if we do sign him I'm only going to like the signing if it is a short deal or there are injury clauses.

            I would accept Quarles as a one-year fix. Wilson would be a great pickup if he can play, but chances are he's not going to be available for a while. He will most likely wait to get healthy before he tries to sign anywhere, and then will command a real contract and not some cheapo bargain.

            Thing is, the Lions LB situation COULD be pretty good if Bailey and Lehman stay healthy. But what are the odds of that? I say you sign Quarles (assuming he is healthy enough to play) to a one-year deal and look for more help next year.

              Im sure wilson is looking to sign a short term deal to prove he's healthy, if we can get him cheap i think we should absolutely sign him.

                I disagree, the pattern with star players like him is not to sign a contract while their health is still up in the air, making them have to sign a bargain-basement deal. Usually they wait until they're ready to pass a physical and then demand the same type of contract as they had before. Now, if Wilson can do that and he's interested in the Lions, then by all means get him, even at a normal price.

                You can bank on one thing: We will not get a player like Wilson, and probably not even Quarles, at below market value. The Lions won't sign them if they can't play if they can play they won't sign with the Lions for less than their market value.

                  i think they are confident that Lehman is healthy and will take over MLB

                    With the Lions history and the Tampa connection, I envision Quarles as our starting MLB.

                      I wouldn't mind seeing Quarles for a year but they really need to address the ILB postion next year..

                        I agree completely, we should try to trade for Vilma since the Jets got Harris and Vilma doesn't fit into the 3-4 very well.

                          I would love that but with them having Vilma to be free to roam and now Harris to be more of the in the box guy, the Jets are set at ILB..
