Nick Cotsonika is reporting the Lions will sign enormous DT Grady Jackson.
This is a great signing, presuming the "two-to-three years" bit doesn't include too much guaranteed money. Jackson will be the big big body in the middle the Lions so sorely lacked last season. I've always said that Jackson is a breathtakingly athletic 300 pound man who happens to be about fifty pounds overweight at the moment; and I hold to that assessment. I keep waiting for his knees to give out, but somehow ol' Grady just plants his large self right where it needs to be and stuffs the run. He's continued to be more than serviceable, deep into his thirties. His presence clogging the line--and, yes, the toilets--should be good for about an 0.5 ypc reduction in opponents' yards per carry, all by himself.
Keep it going Mayhew, keep it going. Just get us another corner . . .
