Ansah was originally drafted by the Lions in the 1st Round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Since then, he has racked up 48 sacks and 219 tackles in 80 games (73 starts).
Chances are high that we have seen the last of Ansah in a Detroit Lions uniform.
The 2018 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings are officially underway, which means the rumors will be flying around for the next few days.
For the Detroit Tigers, adding a shortstop during the offseason is priority No. 1 but general manager Al Avila has said the team will also be open to adding a second baseman if it makes sense.
As it stands, Dawel Lugo is probably the odds-on favorite to land the starting second baseman job out of Spring Training, but at just 23 years of age, he could probably use a bit of seasoning.
So, which second baseman could the Tigers bring in, not only to bridge the gap but to potentially deal at the 2019 Major League Baseball trade deadline?
According to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, the right man for the job could be former Tigers All-Star and Gold Glove winner, Ian Kinsler.
From Detroit Free Press:
Kinsler, 36, has been a winning player for the past decade, and now he finally has a World Series championship ring to show for it. Said one Red Sox executive about Kinsler’s contributions down the stretch last season, “He was really good for us.”
How did the Red Sox land Kinsler? In a July 30 trade with the Angels for a pair of pitching prospects.
