Predicting Bob Quinn’s free agency big board

 

[tps_header]

With the recent moves that general manager Bob Quinn has made (cutting Joique Bell, Stephen Tulloch, James Ihedigbo and C.J. Wilson), plus the announcement Calvin Johnson‘s retirement, the Lions seem to be in a pretty decent spot as far as the salary cap is concerned. Right now, the team has approximately $41.1 million in space to use on the free agent market. Of course, there are plenty of areas that need to be addressed, and that $41.1 million will most likely seem like nothing when it’s all said and done.

Between free agency and the upcoming draft, there are plenty of choices to be made in the Lions front office. Here is the big board that Quinn should be using for the free agent market.

Ihedigbo is out, and Isa Abdul-Quddus is likely to hit the open market. Iloka, who is reportedly already on the Lions radar, could seemingly fill the hole at the safety position. Above average in both run-stopping and pass coverage, Iloka fits the bill in a position that doesn’t need to be filled by an enormous contract. He finished last season with 47 tackles and one interception for the Cincinnati Bengals. Standing at six-foot-four-inches tall and 225 pounds, the 26-year old still has the prime of his career ahead of him.
