The Detroit Lions have re-signed defensive tackle Christian Ringo, addressing a need by adding depth on the defensive line. Ringo has five career tackles and has forced one fumble.
He played in six games for the Lions last season. He was a reserve in eight games in 2016 with Green Bay. The Packers drafted the former Louisiana-Lafayette standout in the sixth round in 2015.
New Lions TE Luke Willson:’Dream come true’ playing in Detroit More Dave Birkett discusses the Detroit Lions’ decision to release tight end Eric Ebron on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. Luke Willson dressed up as Barry Sanders for Halloween not once, but twice, as a kid. He grew up cheering for Sanders, Herman Moore, Scott Mitchell and every other Lion, even when it wasn’t the popular thing to do at his house just across the border in LaSalle, Ont. And on Wednesday, he fulfilled a boyhood dream when he signed a one-year contract to play for the Lions.
According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Marquette King went to the Raiders’ facility on Friday to meet some of his new coaches — Jon Gruden was hired as head coach in January — when Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie informed King he was being released.
King — affectionately referred to as’Punt Gawd’ by fans and renowned for his post-punt dance celebrations — is now on the open market, and he’s an option worth exploring at punter for the Eagles.
Do we give Andrew Luck the benefit of the doubt It’s encouraging that the rehabbing quarterback is throwing footballs again, but we learned our lesson last offseason regarding his health updates. The Colts went 4-12 without Luck in 2017, and it’s frankly easier to envision that happening again than it is to imagine the 28-year-old returning to Pro Bowl form in 2018.
Fact is, he hasn’t been in that form since 2014, and he’s missed 26 games since then. Even if he suits up Week 1, nobody knows how effective he will be.
