Despite a great-looking defensive line, the Lions defense has a lot of question marks. Their linebacker situation looks nearly as dire as their secondary, with both areas needing to be addressed in free agency.
Longtime Lions writer Mike O’Hara, now working for FoxSportsDetroit.com, writes the team has a very specific wish list at linebacker. They like both Jaguars linebacker Justin Durant and Titans linebacker Stephen Tulloch, but Durant apparently has the edge in Detroit’s view.
Durant would play on the outside, which would likely keep DeAndre Levy at middle linebacker. We’re not sure there will be a huge market for the oft-injured Jaguar, so the Lions should be able to get their man.
