Detroit Lions enter offseason with 21 unrestricted free agents

For the Detroit Lions, the 2019 offseason has started a little earlier than they hoped as a 6-10 record was not close to getting them into the playoffs.

One thing about the NFL is there is roster turnover from year to year and that will be the case with the Lions as they continue to move through the offseason and towards the 2019 regular season.

So, let’s take a look at the 21 players who have expiring contracts AND can become an unrestricted free agent if they so choose. Remember, any of these players could re-sign with the Lions if both parties come to an agreement or they can elect to test the waters of free agency.

  • QB Matt Cassel
  • QB Jake Rudock
  • RB LeGarrette Blount
  • RB Justin Stockton
  • RB Zach Zenner
  • FB Nick Bellore
  • WR Brian Brown
  • WR Bruce Ellington
  • WR TJ Jones
  • WR Brandon Reilly
  • TE Levine Toilolo
  • TE Luke Willson
  • OT Andrew Donnal
  • DT Ricky Jean Francois
  • DT Joshua Frazier
  • DE Ziggy Ansah
  • LB Eli Harold
  • LB Kelvin Shepard
  • CB Marcus Cooper
  • CB DeShawn Shead
  • LS Don Muhlbach

Nation, which of these players do you think the Lions should try to bring back for the 2019 season?

The Detroit Lions next offensive coordinator will be…

On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions FINALLY cut ties with offensive coordinator, Jim Bob Cooter. It’s a move they should have made a long time ago as the guy could not play call himself out of a paper bag. But we are talking about the Lions and as we know, they always keep players, coaches, and general managers for way too long.

So, now that Cooter is gone, the speculation has begun as to who will be the Lions, next offensive coordinator.

Within an hour of the announcement that the Lions had decided not to renew Cooter’s contract, the local media and bloggers started to release their pieces on potential candidates to replace him. Some listed as few as five candidates while others seemed to list every offensive coach they have ever heard of.

To be honest, I personally have a list of seven which I planned on publishing (maybe I still will) until I actually gave it some thought and realized exactly who the Lions will hire. Note: He did not make my top seven.

Let me make something very clear. I do not trust Bob QuinnMatt Patricia, or anyone else with power in the Lions organization when it comes to evaluating player or coaching talent. Because of that, I have to believe they will make the wrong hire once again.
