Lacey Signs With Lions


Recommended Posts

Guess the coaches didn't see anything the liked in Lacey

Jacob Lacey - DB - Lions

Lions signed CB Jacob Lacey to a one-year contract.

The Lions have found a potential replacement for Eric Wright in a 24-year-old who has already made 27 career starts, but was also benched for a five-game stretch by the NFL's worst team last season. Lacey is serviceable against the run, but has been one of the league's most frequent burn victims the past few seasons. He became an unrestricted free agent after being non-tendered by the Colts, and had drawn no other known interest on the open market.

Hahaha!

That bio is ridiculous! I hope Lacey doesn't read it; it would destroy his self-esteem...

Kinda like Tim Jennings?lol

Not that he's been great, but do you mean the Tim Jennings who has started 28 of 32 regular season and both playoff games games since being signed by the Bears and just signed a new contract with those same Bears before he became a free agent?

I would start Jennings without hesitation over Lacey.

Shouldn't this be banished to NFL General with all the Peyton threads using the same logic that Lacey is no longer a Colt?

I'm guessing after next season it won't fit in NFL general either. (HEY OHHH!)

Or kept here in the Colts section along the same lines as why certain Peyton threads are still here, even though both are no longer Colts.

I don't have a problem with it staying here but I've seen many Manning threads moved to NFL general and when asked why they were moved it was stated because Manning is no longer a Colt. So does that rule only apply to Peyton Manning or does it apply to all former Colts?

I think it applies to all former Colts, and that you have caught the mods mid move.

They have a lot of Peyton threads to move.

Luck fans just don't want Peyton to hang around. ;)

And I thought their secondary was bad already..

Well you can blame this on megatron, they don't have any money to fix the issue. I would hope for their sake he is going to be a backup, otherwise the Lions will have the same problem they had last year.

    • I'm not saying you're wrong man. One thing about JB though is he's careful with the football and still has legs. The guy can still ball. The other thing is Las Vegas only has about $4M in effective cap as it stands now and there are teams out there with much worse QB rooms right now. Not saying JB would be a bad fit for the Colts, but again, if he's going to land a contract as a backup he's probably going to want a similar deal with P5 money or a signing bonus. As a backup, he's probably not going to get a prorated bonus because nobody wants to deal with dead cap over a backup QB. The Colts would just be repeating what they did this year when they brought in Rivers, but it made more sense because I think everyone knew this was his swansong. I don't understand the logic that says JB will command less money than a 37 year old QB; who basically is going to make an extra $8.6M from a team he's not even going to play for, that people are scared to death to put on the field. Not to mention there are a few teams out there that could absolutely see him playing a handful of games for and who are chasing unknown commodities at the position in the draft. I think he's at least worth more to a team like that as an insurance policy, particularly with future cap considerations on the oline, LB and any potential FA signings Ballard wants to make. I would absolutely not make JB any sort of priority. You're not really going to know for sure until June 1 if he's going to take a deal like the one you're suggesting in my view. The other part of that is I'd almost rather grab Smith for a song and put a high character guy like him, a freaking hero, behind a kid like Eason and even Wentz just for a locker room presence.
