Next Tuesday is a pretty big day for our nation as it just so happens to be the day that has been established as the NFL trade deadline!
Oh, wait, what? The Presidential Election is on the same day?
Anyway, back to the trade deadline.
After winning their last two games, the Detroit Lions have moved to 3-3 on the season, and believe it or not, they are right back in the playoff hunt.
So the question is, will the Lions be buyers or sellers at the deadline? Or, will they decide to stand pat with their current roster?
That is a question Lions’ GM Bob Quinn will have to answer but I believe, given the mandate by ownership to contend for the playoffs, that he will look to add some firepower that will push the Lions over the hump and into the playoffs.
In my opinion, the area where the Lions could use the biggest boost is improving their pass rush.
According to a piece published by CBS Sports, there are nine pass rushers who are potential trade targets and I am adding a tenth player to the list (Everson Griffen).
Which of these players would you target if you were Bob Quinn?
- J.J. Watt (Texans)
- Melvin Ingram (Chargers)
- Whitney Mercilus (Texans)
- Ryan Kerrigan (Washington)
- Carlos Dunlap (Bengals)
- Ryan Anderson (Washington)
- Haason Reddick (Cardinals)
- Takkarist McKinley (Falcons)
- Trent Murphy (Bills)
- Everson Griffen (Vikings)
Nation, which of these pass rushers should Bob Quinn target at the deadline? Or, do you have somebody else in mind?
