Bad news Lions fans, it sounds like we won’t even get to the opening of free agency before our fun is crushed. A new report from Detroit Free Press Lions beat writer Dave Birkett cites a team sources as follows:
Asomugha, who could command $18 million per year as the best available free agent, likely will be “too expensive” for the Lions, according to a team source.
If Detroit wants to spend, a signing like Jonathan Joseph completely transforms that secondary into a reasonable looking outfit
While this news may disappoint a number of fans, I think a lot of them knew this would probably be the case. The good news is that there are a number of great cornerbacks to be had once free agency opens.
