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!)

haha

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.

    • Yep and that is where having a great agent comes in as I posted above. 
    • Why is it that they report it like that? Is it because the cap is always uncertain?
    • Yeah to me Montana like Peyton at worse is top 3. The era Montana played in was brutal and he got 4 Rings out of it with pretty good stats for back then.
    • No insult, I know Philly is one of the rare areas with its extremely high passion for one sport above all the others. I feel Philly and Green Bay are those areas for football. Everything else is just something to kill some time.   I cant count last year because of the pandemic which is an extreme rarity and skews the numbers. But yes a small drop the last few years for the SB BUT still a huge amount and way above any other sport. When your still looking at 98-111 million viewers for the SB your talking elite numbers.    Finals- Baseball avg around 10-12 mill , Basketball 13-18 mill, Hockey 3-8 mill. Im not even counting 2020 numbers due to the pandemic.    Reg season- So yes last year it was down a ton, but all sports were down a ton. In 2019 they were on a big upraise actually increasing 1.9 mil. to a  avg viewers a week. The highest year ever 2015 for viewers was only 1 mill more then the 2019 number. So it really was not on the decline 3-4 years. 2015 the high point at 17.9 avg a week then it drops 2 years to 3 mill less a week from 2016-2017, then back up again two years in a row 2018-2019 to record numbers again to 16.5 mill a week avg and then the pandemic happens. So they were actually on a upraise again.    Lets also not forget overall TV ratings have dropped almost 10% as well. Not sports rating, overall ratings. So its not a football issue or a sports issue.    So even in a "down" slide it by far destroys every other sport. The NFL reg season avg per week is higher then most of any other sports finals viewer numbers. Maybe this does not get more money in a contract, but it will not get then much less. Once this pandemic is over, I see this jumping up dramatically and I think the NFL will use that in there favor. 
    • He responded already, but the key is $67m in "new money," divided by four additional years = $16.75m average. That's how these contracts get reported and ranked, even though it doesn't work that way on the cap.
