There is no question about it that the Detroit Lions have to explore all avenues when it comes to improving their joke of a rushing attack. That includes Lions general manager Bob Quinn doing his due diligence when it comes to free agency.
With the Chicago Bears declining their $8 million option on Josh Sitton, the 32-year-old guard is set to hit free agency and it would be wise for Quinn and the Lions to kick the tires on the 4-time Pro Bowler.
One person who agrees with that notion is Lions guard T.J. Lang, who was a teammate of Sitton when they were with the Green Bay Packers.
On Tuesday night, Lang tweeted what seems like a recruiting message in response to a Pro Football Talk article titled, “Josh Sitton feels he has “prime years” left.

Though Sitton missed a few games of the 2017 regular season with an ankle injury, he played at an extremely high level up to that point. He has been one of the best guards in the NFL for the past decade and considering his position, he certainly has a couple of high-level seasons left before he hangs up his cleats.
From Pro Football Talk:
“I am planning on playing and hitting free agency and continuing to play at a high level,” Sitton said. “I believe I have prime years left.”
What do you think, Nation? Should the Lions do what it takes to bring Sitton to the Motor City?
