Detroit Lions Free Agency

Derek GlauchContributor IFebruary 18, 2009

With all the notable FA OL, DL, and QB out there, why don't the Lions draft Andre Smith, Ray Maualuga, some defensive secondary, then go out and get one of these players?

  • Matt Birk
  • Mike Goff
  • Jeff Saturday
  • Julius Peppers
  • Albert Haynesworth (with Schwartz this is actually more possible then you may think)
  • Bertrand Berry
  • David Carr
  • Brian Dawkins
  • Deltha O' Neal

Yes I know all of you are going to say "Sure the Lions could get one of these players if they had $20 million to spend on each of them, but this is the Lions we are talking about"

That may be true but I'm just throwing out some names that would help them greatly. Haynesworth is probably the biggest name that has the best chance to come here following his old Def. Coordinator.

Where can I comment?
