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|
#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
#4 Corey Hilliard OT
#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
#7 Don Muhlbach
#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
Guys I would not offer:
Maybe at the right price and medical clearence
