Brought in 4 CBs and two S's. Adam Schefter tweeted it was 9 total however. Sydquan Thompson and Tyrell Johnson are the best ones IMO, but none are PS eligible so we are still looking for upgrades which makes me glad. However I wish we didn't have to do this every year.

I think we're getting closer to not needing to do this every year. The WRs, TEs, DLine, LBs and QBs are set. The secondary appears to be next.

I think I'm going to share GoLions feelings if we draft a WR early. We are set for when Burleson leaves. All we'll need is our 4-. And those should be filled via FA with cheap vets.

Our DBs need a young upgrade.

Please no...

In all seriousness though, we do need to upgrade our secondary with young talent (which we did this year, just not elite young talent).

If there is a bonafide #1 CB available, I would like to see Mayhew trade multiple picks to move up and get him without giving up future picks.

Best news is that the draft is projected to be deep at the CB and S positions.
Hopefully 2 studs can be drafted for the back 4

So far, I am seeing and hoping the same thing. Things change alot over the course of a season though so we will have to take a wait and see approach.

Ideally, Bentley steps up big, Houston and Delmas resign for a reasonable price and we draft an elite S and rework our interior O line. That would be ideal, and I'm not counting on it.

Any word on Chris Greenwood?

He's on the PUP list until week 6. I don't think he can even practice with the team, just work with the trainers until after that.

That's what I was thinking, but I deleted it. I see Houston and Delmas sticking around, and Bentley factors into the future. That's a group that's pretty "easy" to build around.

The only problem is we would never see those three on the field at the same time. At least one would always be hurt. Crying or Very sad

I knew that, but has anyone heard or read anything on his recovery? I just hope he is ready to go when eligible to come off the PUP in order to get some reps.

Thompson is interesting. Also interested in Morgan Trent. Thompson is coming back from an injury and probably wasn't healthy when cut, and I don't know why Trent was cut, he is a decent player IMO.

Does anyone think we bring back Aaron Berry after his 3 game suspension is up? He would be an immediate upgrade over what we have. Plus, I think he will be humble and hungry. He couldn't be any worse than Titus! Shocked

Titus hasn't been arrested or put a gun in anyone's chest yet. Aaron Berry is an idiot. The answer to your question is absolutely not. Aaron Berry's days with the Lions are over.

I also think he needs to be on a roster to fulfill his suspension. If we brought him back, or if anyone does he will have to still sit out. But I agree, we won't see him in Detroit again. If anyone comes back I would say it will be Alphonso Smith.
