It will cost some $$ to lure him to Detroit but definitely yes, give his agent a call. Easily the #1 available CB in FA ...
I agree, give him a call and check on the price tag and internally weigh it to see if it matches the future of our program.
I also admit that his antics did kind of turn me off on him, but he was pretty darn good before his injury and I expect him to be good again...but his lack of production with a good pass rush is questionable.
i want us to call oakland about aso. if i'm paying for a #1 corner, then might as well go with the best. plus al is insane. maybe it would only take our 2nd rounder. i wouldn't touch our first round pick unless it was a pick swap with them.

Detroit Lions in 2011!
As far as I'm concerned Detroit can cut Buchanon ($3.5 million base) go get Dunta Robinson & draft Wilson, Cox, Ghee McCourty or Kareem Jackson & be fine. Certainly no worse & we get younger! Of course keeping back-up depth with Will James, Eric King (if necessary)
It is even possible we get a S in the draft ... Next to the WR's, I think our secondary will have the biggest off season changes to it. Jsut a hunch.
Should the Lions go after Dunta Robinson? They need help at corner, and he would be an up grade at CB.
I say yes, enacting the "beggars can't be choosers" corollary. He would instantly be our best CB putting aside judgments on his attitude. Ya gotta at least take a look and make an offer. If we get outbid by Washington/Dallas, then so be it. But if we ignore him because of attitude....then WTF?
Pretty much a no brainer, yes. Regardless of his attitude, the Lions need talent and he has that. I could see it working out like Dre Bly though, pay a lot of money for a guy who is good but he's a cancer and eventually will be shipped away. But until that day comes I'd take him in a heartbeat.
