It's debatable how credible ProFootballCentral is but in the interest of sparking discussion, here a few names and news they've associated with the Lions thus far:

http://www.profootballcentral.com

- Lions increasing their offer to Louis Delmas after seeing how much interest he's generated.

- Linked to WR/Returner Josh Cribbs.

- Linked to RB's Steven Jackson and Reggie Bush.

- Linked to CB's Antoine Cason and Sean Smith.


I'm meh on Delmas, depends on price.

No on Cribbs unless he is extremely cheap.

Wouldnt mind either back, but Bush might be a better fit.

Would like either CB.

Still keeping a close watch on:

Reggie Bush- Perfect fit
Andy Levitre- Top rated OG
Chris Houston- Top F/A priority from our roster
Nnamdi Asomugha- Base salary $15M(Philly will cut this guy)
Michael Bennett- somewhat viable option to replace Avril
Chris Clemons- instant starter
Antoine Cason- comprable to Houston
Derek Cox- Injuries concern me
Greg Toler- Under the radar talent

Probably saying this in jest though

I like all of those players, but I'm not sure how well Bennett fits the wide-9. I like Bennett, just not sure of the fit.

Lions player tells me some Detroit players recruiting Reggie Bush. We'll see if it works.


CBS Sport's Mike Freeman

I would love to have Reggie Bush on this roster. Dude would definitely fill that Jahvid Best role we missed so badly last season.

AZ is interested in Bush as well as Sean Smith. I'm torn, since we play AZ this year, but if they land Smith I don't think there is any way they go after Bush. That should lower his leverage and then of course is price tag.

I like all of those players, but I'm not sure how well Bennett fits the wide-9. I like Bennett, just not sure of the fit.
Here's how he stacked up with Werner at the combine(2009). He had a faster 10 yard split(1.62 to 1.65), one less rep on BP(24 to 25), and tied vertical jump(31") and almost tied the broad jump (9'2" to 9'3").

He's trending upwards, has excellent size(6'4", 275 lbs), and PFF has him scored favorably against both the run and pass. Could be a diamond in the ruff.

All of those things scream a traditional 4-3 DE to me. Don't get me wrong, I think he could be a great player, but he just doesn't seem explosive enough to be a fit in the wide-9. If we get rid of the wide-9 I'd absolutely love to have him.

So you believe Werner would've been a bad fit for the wide-9?

I don't think he'd be a bad fit, just not really a good fit. Mingo and Ansah would be better fits.

Anyways, we lined up a lot less in the wide 9 last season, and are about to lose our best player for that scheme. Lo Jack and Willie Young are both closer to Bennett, than they are to Avril.

Not saying he's my top priority or anything, just think he's a viable option at a position we need a ton of help at.

Cardinals cut WR Early Doucet. I wouldnt mind taking a look at him pending price. Still just 27 years old, made less than $1.5 M last year so I dont think he would have a huge price tag, but not sure. Could probably play outside and inside at 6'0 212.



I did just see he had the highest % of drops last year, so the price should be relatively low.

Good the wide 9 is garbage. Drafting based in it dumb. Schwartz already said they ran it a lot based on personnel but they would adjust if different personnel

Drops. Ugh, tired of hearing about those every Sunday.

Yeah, I don't want to deal with more drops. I'd rather sign a different guy or just go with Burleson, or maybe draft a WR. But, if he comes at the min, it can't really be a bad signing and would have upside.

I had already typed out the first part when I came across the drops part. Didn't want to delete everything. With the drops issue I definitely have less interest in him than I did before I saw that stat. On the other hand AZ did have crappy QB play last year so maybe that impacted him (wishful thinking?).
