While the Detroit Lions rank towards the top of the league in
overall sacks

both from the edges and the interior of the line. With the team on its bye week
currently, they may be looking to upgrade that front seven to find some pass
rushers available across the league. That could be why, according to Ian
Rapoport, the Lions are hosting former second-round pick Tank Carradine for a
visit on Wednesday:Carradine was a polarizing prospect in the draft. He had all
the physical tools to be an outstanding edge player, but he didn’t have a ton of
playing experience, and his college career ended with a torn ACL. Regardless,
the 49ers picked him 40th overall in the 2013 draft.But the skeptics turned out
to be onto something. Carradine only started eight total games for the 49ers
over four years, totalling just 5.5 sacks. This
offseason [url=][/url] ,
the Raiders gave him a shot, and while he ended up making the team, he only
played in Oakland’s Week 2 game against the Broncos. He then requested a release
from the team, and the Raiders granted his request last week. For the Lions,
Carradine could provide an additional body along the front seven that has quite
a bit of versatility. In addition to being a 4-3 defensive end or a 3-4 outside
linebacker (he has experience as both), Carradine’s strength gives him the
potential to slide inside as a potential 5-tech in specific packages. However,
Carradine’s strength remains his pass rushing abilities as a pure edge rusher.
In Oakland, he slimmed

coordinator on Carradine from back in August:Obviously, things didn’t work out
that well for the Raiders, who were desperately looking for a pass rusher to
replace Khalil Mack. However, we’ve seen the Lions already use other teams’
spare parts (Romeo Okwara, Eli Harold) and turn them into somewhat efficient
players. Maybe Carradine will be the next. Jason Garrett already said the
Cowboys wouldn’t change their play caller or make major personnel changes this
week. But their offense might look a little different against Detroit.Offensive
coordinator Scott Linehan and quarterback Dak Prescott are ready to “sling it
around” Sunday, with a more aggressive and creative approach. At 1-2, what do
the Cowboys have to lose?“There are going to be some different things you’ll
see,” Prescott told reporters
Thursday [url=]Detroit Lions

rank 30th in total offense, including 31st in passing, and their 41 points are
the second-fewest in the NFL behind only the inept Cardinals.“We’re obviously
searching for some things that will help us,” Linehan said. “I think we’ve got
some good stuff in this week. Maybe just a few more wrinkles to it.“I think we
need that.”Linehan said he and the players remain confident, but he does concede
that everyone starts “to press” when things aren’t going well.“I think our guys
just need to basically take the weight of the world off their shoulders and go
out and play,” Linehan said. “Just start slinging it around. They’re ready to do
