With Game 3 all but over in the final 30 seconds, the Devils and the Tampa Bay Lightning let their emotions turn into a 10-player melee.
LSU’s Arden Key would be a value pick if he falls all the way to 51, where the Lions select in the second round. Or Alabama’s Da’Shawn Hand, a former 5-star recruit, would provide more of a big-bodied 3-4 end for Patricia’s multiple front who also would give the Lions the ability to replace Washington this year and save some cap space.
However the draft plays out, the Lions would be wise to find a way to come out it with a quality defensive end. An addition at the position isn’t mission critical to fill an immediate need, but is of vital importance to the team’s long-term outlook up front.
Retaining Ansah, or securing a one-for-one replacement in free agency next year, is likely to cost north of $15 million per season. Being able to draft and develop would give the franchise an option with a far more reasonable price tag, providing greater cap flexibility to bolster the roster at multiple other spots.
In addition to November’s game, the NFL will hold one regular-season game in Mexico annually from 2019 to 2021. We are thrilled to be a part of the NFL’s international initiatives once again, and we are excited to face the Rams at historic Estadio Azteca this fall, Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in January’s statement.
The support for the NFL in Mexico has grown significantly since our initial trip in 1996. We look forward to returning to Mexico and connecting with a new generation of fans this season. The game will be a home contest for the Rams, who will play the rest of their home schedule at the Los Angeles Coliseum until their new stadium is ready to open in 2020. It will also be the first time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters will face his old team since being traded to the Rams this offseason. Southern California and Mexico share strong historic and cultural ties and this game will provide an opportunity to celebrate the special connection between these two regions, Rams owner Stan Kroenke said.
