The Lions are bringing back one of their most savvy acquisitions from 2018."The Detroit Lions are reportedly bringing back defensive
end Romeo Okwara. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero Womens DeShawn Shead Jersey , the Lions and Okwara have agreed to a two-year deal: According to Pelissero, the deal is worth more than a
second-round tender, and since the 2019 NFL salary cap has been officially set
at $188.2 million, here’s a look at what that figure may look like: So the two
sides have agreed on a two-year deal worth more than $6 million total. And by
agreeing to terms, the Lions have made sure that Okwara is wrapped up for the
next two years. Had the Lions chosen to give Okwara the second-round tender,
opposing teams could have offered the defensive end a better contract, giving
Detroit only a second-round draft pick in return.Okwara first joined the Lions
right after the roster cutdown in 2018. He quickly became a very important part
of the defense, taking up the role that Ezekiel Ansah was supposed to before
injury. By the season’s end Christian Jones Jersey , no defensive linemen finished with more snaps than Okwara, and he turned those 716 opportunities into 39 tackles, 7.5 sacks and 14
quarterback hits. By signing Okwara, the Lions have made sure they’ll have some
important depth on the defensive line, but this doesn’t change their serious
need at the position. While Okwara nicely set the edge, he didn’t bring a lot of
consistent pressure throughout the year, despite his respectable sack numbers.
Still, at just 23 years old Womens Michael Roberts Jersey , there is room for Okwara to grow. UPDATE: Okwara’s teammate (both from Detroit and New York) Damon Harrison Sr. seems
pretty happy about the move: UPDATE 2: The Lions have made it official: A year
and a half ago, the Packers watched as longtime starting guard T.J. Lang walked
away to a division rival, the Lions, taking more money from Detroit than Green
Bay was willing to pay. At the time, the Packers were criticized for that move.
That criticism was wrong.The Lions have placed Lang on injured reserve today,
ending his second straight injury-plagued season in Detroit. Lang signed a
three-year, $28.5 million contract with the Lions, but there’s talk that the
Lions will release him this offseason rather than pay him the $9 million he’s
due to make in 2019. Lang’s contract now looks like an expensive mistake by
Detroit.And declining to match that contract now looks like a wise move by
then-Packers General Manager Ted Thompson. It was particularly prudent for
Thompson because he knew he’d have to withstand criticism for his move: The
Packers’ coaching staff was reportedly “incensed” that Thompson refused to top
the Lions’ offer Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , instead letting Lang leave. Thompson was criticized for being too “cheap” to keep Lang.But as PFT wrote at the time, the NFL has a
hard salary cap, and one person’s “cheap” move is another person’s wise cap
management. And Thompson was concerned that Lang’s age and injury history made
him a risk of not being available for the long term. Those concerns turned out
to be justified.So when a high-priced player moves from one team to another in
free agency, it’s not as simple as saying the team that lost the player got
worse, and the team that signed the player got better. In the case of Lang, it
was the Packers who were better off when a division rival spent a lot of money
on a player that the Green Bay front office expected to decline.
