The Detroit Lions can’t let this d-lineman slip away in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...
