Detroit Lions 9 which free agents to re-sign

Martin Mayhew said he was targeting 9 Lions free agents out of the 22 eligible.

Here are the 9, I would target:

#1 Chris Houston CB

Slowgrind with a pick 6 in 2011
Chris played well for us ranking #21 in the NFL at cb. He ranked # 19 in 2011 and # 52 in 2010. I would be weary of paying him over $5 million a year. 3 year $15 million would be about right.

#2 Lawrence Jackson DE

LoJack should re-signed. He is a rotational end that will help to replace the released KVB. He ranked # 39 at DE this year #18 in 2011 and #16 in 2010. 3 years $6mill.

#3 Sammie Hill DT
SnapsRunRushTacklesSacksQBH Stops BPGPPenMTDH


A good rotational guy at DT for the Lions. Ranked # 24 in 2012, #30 in 2011, #19 in 2010. He is not a starter in the NFL but can contribute as a back up. 3 years $5million.
#4 Corey Hilliard OT

A guy who did not play a snap in 2012 but can start at RG or RT. He started in 2010 during the 4 games winning streak, In 2011 he replaced Cherlius early in the season. 2 years $3 million

#5 Will Heller TE



Solid back up Te and FB. Does not get hurt and does his job. 1 year vet Min.

#6 Jason Hanson K

One more year for Jason, $1.5 Mil

#7 Don Muhlbach

Pro Bowl Snapper 1 year $1 mil.

#8 Justin Durant OLB



A solid player against the run. Terrible vs. the pass. Has some gas in the tank. Ranks #18 in 2012 #14 in 2011. 2 years $5 Million

#9 Andre Fluellen

A Millen draft pick but has played with a lot of heart. Can play speical teams and both end or tackle. 1 year vet min.

Guys I would not offer:

DeAndre Levy
Cliff Avril

Drayton Florence
Pat Lee
Kevin Smith
Stefan Logan
Jacob Lacey
Nick Harris
Gosder Cherlius

Maybe at the right price and medical clearence

Louis Delmas
Corey Williams
