Ep: 330 – Cheap Options In Free Agency – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris, Sandman, and Jeff Risdon get together to bring you the latest Detroit Lions news and opinion. We’ll cover Kenny Golladay, Jason LaConfora, and a whole lot of BS, take a look at accuracy rating comparisons between Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford, discuss what a weakling Dan Campbell is, and dive into the best bargain bin options for the Lions in the 2021 NFL Free Agency period.

Detroit Lions Podcast Asks If Dan Campbell Is Weak

To be certain, the answer is a straight ‘no’, but the real conversation is about authenticity at the coaching position. We had an issue in that area with the last coaching staff, but there is a story about Dan Campbell that pretty clearly shows that his toughness is real. We discuss it and just how amazing what he endured was, much less that he did so quietly.

2021 NFL Free Agency Sets The Tone For The Draft

Brad Holmes has taken a team with only 5 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft and a quarterback who wanted out, and turned it into a good NFL quarterback, 6 picks and an extra first rounder in each of the next two years. Great start, and an opportunity to get some much needed capital for this team. Before we start spending that capital, Holmes will have the 2021 NFL Free Agency period to set himself up further ahead of the draft. This team will need a number of players this year, and looking in the bargain areas of the free agency wire will be a key place for him to play to fill those needs. You don’t want to saddle the team with expensive old players right as the team is ready to make a run, so this is the time to find high quality, nicely priced players to help the team build to the next level. We go over some of those players and what key positions they could fill and who Brad Holmes might grab in the 2021 NFL Free Agency period.
