Riley Reiff 2nd year 16 games 8 starts 3 year left on contract.
2013 Cap hit: $1,816,750
The Lions will settle on Reiff at the left tackle. After trying to replace Backus thru the draft, Reiff was left standing. This is actually the position I am most worried about the line. Reiff struggled when he replace Backus, He gave up 5 QBH, committed 5 Penalities and missed 14 blocks. His lack of arm length is well documented. Reiff's play will determine how well the offense performs.

2013 hit: $3,425,000
