One good thing is that he could probably step back and play OLB in a 3-4 during those situations that Henderson wants to mix up the DLine formation.
Classic Lions' logic. He isn't worth what we pay him on merit, but we think that we can get him to perform at levels that would make him a bargain. Nevermind that no other team in the world would give him close to that ridiculous amount of money. Reportedly $8 Millen dollars guaranteed.
This is the move of a President and GM who still has no idea what he is doing. How he hasn't gotten fired is the first sign of the senility of William Clay Ford.
What kills me more about it is that they will use that logic to defend not signing or drafting a pass rushing DL. No Arrington, no Peterson, nobody. Just one of their biggest failures, the man they took instead of Portis, Kalimba Edwards. Kalimba Edwards. Kalimba Edwards. I only repeat his name because once the season starts we will no longer hear his name being called.
