The Lions’ defense has improved in recent weeks, but there is still a loophole in pure passing experts, especially if the defense does not confuse the line of sight or send additional steals.
Enter Everson Griffen. The Lions sent the Dallas Cowboys a sixth-round pick (with conditions to be the fifth overall pick) on Tuesday in exchange for a threatening passer, who has used Matthew Stafford and the Lions as Minnesota Vikings came to intimidate.
Today’s question: What level will you trade Everson Griffen?
my answer: One kind.
Even after Griffin may not be him this season, he still made huge demands on the Lions̵
Everson Griffen (Everson Griffen) may not be the one before (not), but he still has 18 pressures this season. This is more than any Lions player who is not named Romeo Okwara.
It is difficult to see how he will make this steal better.

For the Lions, it only costs their base salary of $1.75 million, plus a roster bonus of $187,500 per game, which is a bargain for today’s NFL. Not to mention, the sixth-round picks are for contributors to special teams, marginal players or high-level, low-ceiling players. Griffen is an effective talent, and you know what you get from him. This is a steal of the value provided by the sixth-round pick.
It is your turn.
