Just saw it on a ticker, reported by John Clayton to be a 3yr deal. no other details.
This adds depth to our dline. And he will eventually replace travis johnson
You beat me by 10 seconds.
I'm thinking he might get that spot before the first game...
T.J better be eating his wheaties.
yeah either way i hope this guy becomes an integral part of our d-line and occupies two blockers.
I heard that Demeco was roughed up last year because he had to take on too many blocks. Now with a big body in front of him it should maximize his potential.Scary!!!
Actually I don't think he's a whole lot bigger than the DT's we have...
Wow! It's a good thing our infamous Chronical sports writers informed everybody that we had interest in this guy.
I'm going to do a little more research on this fella before commenting.
Yeah but how much bigger can you get...
the guy is 310+ lbs. Do you want 7ft. 400 lbs guys. That is why the lions are losers. Now instead of taking stafford I hear they want Smith so he can protect Daunte Culpepper?
Anyone know anything about this guy. The fan comments from the Detriot news link aren't that great at all. I hope we got him on the cheap.
They still might go get Cutler with that 20th pick they have from Dallas.
I wanna say Okam is around 325. Big boy.
They say he is pretty good at penetrating vs the run. He's not a wide body, probably more compairable to Okoye then a NT, but he's depth.
Yeah, that's a little worrisome. But the Detroit fans probably don't like any body on that team right now. Don't see a lot of history from this guy that impresses me.
They just went 0-16. Not a lot of fans are going to be sad about marginal starters from that team leaving... That doesn't mean he won't be productive here. All I know about him is that he was a 2nd round draft pick from USC who is a good athlete and a little over 300 lbs. I think he had some toe injuries early in his career.
This seems more and more w/ going LB (Matthews) in the Draft.
Reading the comments, not sure many were impressed. I have no feeling on this except...what has he done?
From fans of detroit they said he was not worth even a 5th rounder so I don't know. I heardhe has only 1.5 career sacks
How would this have anything to do with Mathews and how does it point towards us taking him?
