The only two players I'd consider a major priority are Suh for sure (obviously) and Fairley but exactly how much of a priority I consider him depends on his performance during the coming season.

Sims is a possible priority depending on whether or not we have anyone on the roster prove themselves able to step into the spot if we don't resign him. If no one does he needs to be brought back provided he doesn't ask for more than he's worth.

The rest I couldn't care less about, though I'm always all for tendering RFA's simply because they're cheap and you never know when someone might decide they want one you might not giving you a draft pick no matter how unlikely it may seem.

The fact that both Suh and Fairley are expiring and we have no idea how the Suh contract is going along with the fact that it appears we have no intention to extend Fairley before his contract officially expires is as I've explained before why although D-line isn't a "desperate" need with what we have on the team in my opinion Donald has more value to the Lions than anyone in this draft because of his versatility and ability to play both DE and DT at a high level, start him at DE this year and if Suh and/or Fairley are gone after this year we have someone to replace that inside presence.

EDIT:

I need to clarify that although Dom would be another obvious priority if we have no one to replace him my impression when he signed the one year deal was that it may be the last deal he plans on signing and that's why I didn't list him.

He did, for this season only. Dude is 35 and despite what some say, is not good. But we don't have a replacement yet.

He played well last year. Unfortunately that's one year among many headshakers
