Ep: 202 – Detroit Lions Free Agency Files ft. Tony Ortiz – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case continue to their drive to $10K for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We also discuss Free Agency, bring an angle on Matthew Stafford that you haven’t heard anywhere else, talk about needs for the NFL Draft, and bring on Tony Ortiz, a longtime multi-talented Lions specialist straight off the radio in Detroit.

Detroit Lions Podcast Back On The Attack

We begin the show talking about new Lions pickup Tommy Lee Lewis. After Chris makes the obligatory Pamela Anderson joke we take a look at what he might bring to the team and where he may be lacking. Also, the Malcolm Brown offer breaks while we are recording and we hit that one a little later in the show.

From there Chris brings up a thought process on Matthew Stafford that you haven’t heard anywhere else. It’s an interesting take on how he might be thinking about his career, where his head is at, and what might weigh on his thinking when contract time comes around. Don’t freak out, but it’s another set of data that certainly will weigh in on his decision-making process. This is another time where we think beyond the standard fare on the Detroit Lions Podcast.

Of course we discuss our drive to 10K for St. Jude. Please be sure to tell anyone you know about this effort and take part if you haven’t.

Next we go into draft mode and discuss the concept of “trading down” and what it would take. We also break down why we might, how we might, and what it might cost based upon different scenarios.

Addressing The Lions Biggest Need

It was then time to talk about the CB2 position. It’s the talk of the town and the most glaring need for the team at this point.  The Detroit Lions Podcast discusses who is available, what they might mean to the team, and how this could wind up playing out for the Lions.

We are then pleased to bring Tony Ortiz onto the show. He is an amazing guest that brings some really fresh thinking to how the Lions might be positioning the team and how they may position the players they’ve picked up and where the Lions may be focusing in the draft. Tony is a welcome addition to the Detroit Lions Podcast.
