New, comments

Are there any Lions free agents that the Jaguars could be interested in?

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have a number of pass rushers and defensive linemen hitting free agency this offseason. Are there any that could garner interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Here's a list of all the Lions free agents this year, according to OverTheCap.com.

Player Position Status Salary
Haloti Ngata DT UFA $12,200,000
Jason Jones DE UFA $3,166,667
Joique Bell RB SFA $3,100,000
Tyrunn Walker DE UFA $1,750,000
C.J. Wilson DE SFA $1,675,000
Manny Ramirez C UFA $1,575,000
James Ihedigbo S UFA $1,575,000
Isa Abdul Quddus S UFA $1,500,000
Dan Orlovsky QB UFA $1,050,000
Don Muhlbach LS UFA $1,050,000
Lance Moore WR UFA $1,050,000
Darryl Tapp DE UFA $950,000
Corey Wootton DE UFA $825,000
Crezdon Butler CB UFA $745,000
Bear Pascoe TE UFA $745,000
Jermelle Cudjo DT UFA $660,000
Tahir Whitehead OLB UFA $578,000
Travis Lewis ILB UFA $539,793
Timothy Wright TE RFA $498,333

Let's get right to it: Haloti Ngata is not coming here. Not that you think he would, or that Dave Caldwell has any interest. But it's not going to happen. He's overpriced and he wouldn't fit.

But what about all those pass rushers? Anyone there worth a look? Jason Jones is a limited player who under performs. Tyrunn Walker and C.J. Wilson are barely getting snaps as it is. Darryl Tapp is too old and (again) under performs. And Corey Wootton didn't play a snap last year.

So is there anyone worth getting? Maybe. Many Ramirez can play any of the three interior offensive line positions. What's his price? Is his price tag low enough to pick up a swing guard who can also play center?
