The preparation dust is stable at this time. It’s been two weeks now and it’s the time of year when the discussion of ramifications is a topic. We have already discussed the five Lions who benefited from what happened last week, now is the time to talk about the five Detroit Lions who should be concerned after the preparations. Let’s jump right in.
I love Cephus and I think he showed a good impression of him being a good receiver in the 2021 season, but I don’t see a way for him to be on the Lions in 2022. He showed some illumination last season, but unfortunately. the sample size was very small because he played only five games and missed the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
Much has happened since then. Earlier the Lions signed Josh Reynolds. Then Amon-Ra St. Brown became a star. This season the Lions did a great job signing DJ Chark and selling him to take Jameson Williams from Alabama in preparation.
Where does Cephus go? If the Lions carry six recipients, I think you can blame him for staying, but if they just keep five and get to Cephus against Calf Raymond, the special teams will get heavier, and by chance: Raymond per kilometer.
Anzalone is not at risk of developing this group in 2022. This is an additional long-term concern for him. Although Anzalone is only 27 years old and has the confidence of coaches, the Lions have a future with defenders Derrick Barnes and Malcolm Rodriguez. The young men are about to chase him away. This will expire in the year 2022. Barnes really showed something sometime in 2021, and there is a chance he could take part in the Anzalone work at the camp this summer. There is also concern that Jarrad Davis is back, and if there are coaches who can unlock their pre-selected options, I believe it is a coaching staff. Don’t sleep on a free agent to add Chris Board, either.
Harris is an interesting story. They are fighting hard for security, and the lions have been hunting for them if they have offered an extra value in the corner. He signed DeShon Elliott for free and chose Kerby Joseph to sign up. With Tracy Walker and CJ Moore already having security staff, Harris is an oddball. He did well in the corner in 2021, but the Lions currently have Jeff Okudah, Amani Oruwariye, AJ Parker, Jerry Jacobs, Mike Hughes, Ifeatu Melifonwu and now Chase Lucas in the corner. Where is Will Harris going?
There have been reports of him making a fuss about corners and security, but he has to prove to the camp that he is good at this role to show that the lions need to keep him even with high school players. History tells us that Harris may find it difficult to do this.
Of course, this is an out-of-box story. Griffin was a strange sign. I see that there is a connection between Dan Campbell and Griffin, and I also find that the Lions bosses are good at bringing out good shows from forgotten players everywhere, but what can Griffin do to Brock Wright?
He has been less like a blocker at NFL level, and is less likely to be portrayed as a receiver. With the fifth round rookie chosen James Mitchell coming up with the potential to do anything under the sun and Wright is showing talent in 2021, I don’t see how hard Griffin is. I am ready to make a mistake in this.
I know that is sad. I like Okwara very much. Here is the problem. He will be 27 next month and is recovering from Achilles’ injury. He had a good season of 2020, but he suffered a lot other than that, Okwara had to go somewhere. I want him to stay in Detroit and I hope he does, but the tea leaves suggest that this may not be the result.
the lions just went crazy running for passes in the draft. They nominated Aidan Hutchinson, Josh Paschal and James Houston. He re-signed Charles Harris a year later and has Michael Brockers and Levi Onwuzurike in public. The player is expected to take on a bigger role after Lions defense coach Todd Wash criticized him for his good looks last week. There is also Romeo’s younger brother Julian. he too has been coming.
The final problem for Okwara is that he spends a lot of money. Okwara has a net worth of $ 14.5 million in 2022 and more in 2023. Lions are tied to Okwara in 2022 because they would have had more money in the cap space than the team. But Detroit could pull off $ 7.5 million in the air next year if they no longer see Okwara as a catalyst – and with other defenders coming into the group, it could be.
