Marvin Jones Jersey
On Friday Marvin Jones Jersey , Ryan Mathews broke down everything you need to know about what a potential Detroit Lions trade for Antonio Brown would look like—from how much in cap space it would cost the Lions for the next few years, to what he would do for Detroit’s roster, to the trade compensation it may require to get Brown.Obviously, there were a lot of heated comments on the story. As of writing this, there are 175 comments debating the merits of trading for Brown and how much you pay to get him in Detroit. Some are scared off completely by the drama happening in Pittsburgh and his age. Others see the top-tier talent and a rare opportunity to grab that and think it’s worth any potential risks. Others have debated the value of trading away future assets to get a guy like Brown. But I’d like to get some data on this, so today’s Question of the Day is:Would you be open to the Lions trading for Antonio Brown?My answer: Let’s be clear here, I’m talking about realistic trade options. If you’re only willing to give up a fourth-round pick to get Antonio Brown, you are not open to trading for him. Anyways, I am absolutely open to the idea of getting him. Normally, I’m not one to promote going for the hottest skill-position player on the market—I hated (and still hate) the idea of going for Le’Veon Bell—but this seems like one of the most rare opportunities the Lions have to get literally the best receiver in the league at a reasonable price. His cap hits would range from $12 to $15 million over the next three years, which is actually comparable to what many are expecting a guy like Golden Tate to get on market. Obviously the draft compensation is the biggest hurdle, but as I said on Twitter on Friday, I think I’d be willing to give up the Lions’ eighth overall pick for Brown. Some believe that would be enough. Others don’t. I just wouldn’t go any further than that. Brown is a premier talent that could help immediately turn around the Lions offense in a way that no other offseason addition could. And, yes, I think that could make the Lions instant competitors in the NFC North with another key addition or two. As for the drama, it’s certainly a concern, and it’s likely the reason Detroit doesn’t pursue this. We’ve seen how strict this coaching staff can be, and that’s not likely to mesh well with someone like Brown. That being said, I’d like to think a good coaching staff can handle all personalities, and Brown’s “toxic attitude” is being a little overplayed here. The man and the Steelers had been working in harmony for eight years prior to this, and I’m not going to discount the player after the relationship went sour. There are definitely risks, and I get the hesitation Darius Slay Jersey , but the talent is too good and the salary cap price is too reasonable for me to not at least make a somewhat reasonable offer to Pittsburgh. Your turn.Lions G T.J. Lang misses second-straight practice, Ezekiel Ansah padless With just three days until their Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, the Detroit Lions are still a little hobbled from their Monday night opener. Starting right guard T.J. Lang, who suffered a back injury late in the fourth quarter against the Jets, missed his second straight day of practice, seriously putting into doubt his availability this week. Last year, Lang missed one game due to a back injury, one due to a concussion and one due to a foot injury. In Monday night’s game, Lang missed just a single snap, and backup Kenny Wiggins took his spot. It’s unclear who will fill that role this week if Lang can’t go, but Wiggins is likely the leading candidate with Joe Dahl the next most-likely option.Interestingly enough, the 49ers are going through similar struggles on their offensive line. Starting guard Mike Person missed Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury, and his backup, Joshua Garnett (toe), also was unable to go.The other key injury the Lions suffered in Week 1 was to Ezekiel Ansah. Ansah was listed as “limited” in Wednesday’s approximated injury report (they only did a walkthrough). On Thursday, he was at practice, but he was not wearing shoulder pads, and mostly took part in warmups and general cardio drills. Considering Ansah suffered a shoulder injury, it’s not all that surprising to see him out there with no pads on. However, this casts a little doubt on Adam Schefter’s report on Wednesday that the Lions were “hopeful” Ansah could play this week. The good news is that Matthew Stafford (shin) and LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) looked perfectly fine during Thursday’s practice. Full injury designations will be released later Thursday afternoon.
