Episode #185: Will the Lions use the franchise tag?

This week the guys discuss Erik’s departure from Lions Wire, tease what’s coming next, and reassure listeners this podcast will remain unchanged.

In Lions news, the duo examine the Lions 2021 coaching staff — now that the Antwaan Randle El hire was made official — and discuss who they’re excited about, as well as what concerns they may have.

Additionally, they take a deeper look at the NFL Salary Cap, how the floor being raised to $180 million helps the Lions, breakdown where the team is at heading into free agency, and where they will stand after the Matthew Stafford for Jared Goff trade becomes official.

Finally, they discuss the Lions approach to the 2021 Free Agency period and debate if the Lions will use the franchise tag — as well as who the best candidate to use it on is.
