Free agent profile: Pros, cons of re-signing Dan Skipper

I voted “yes.” Why not bring him to training camp?


Min. veteran deal for a guy we know. Yep, bring him back.


Resign him and hope that he gets a chance to “accidentally” flatten Brad Allen in a game next season.

We are already lacking in bald guys, OF COURse you bring him back!!!

Last year we went with Nelson & Ifedi

Skipper came back to save the day for backup OT


Absolutely bring him back… He’s a culture fit and a solid backup/6th lineman


I personally think Skipper is more so practice squad material, but regardless he is a smart resign for the minimum.


True, but having him go through camp before putting him on the P.S. would help.

Skipper will sign with the Lions then get cut in training camp. Then signed to the practice squad. Then be activated after someone gets hurt.

This has already happened like 7 times. Book it.

Yeah he is a great off the couch guy that you can tell to stay in shape and hang around outside the building for when you need him.

He whiffs on blocks a lot but he knows the offense, can catch and move, and if he does make the block successfully, he’s a huge dude that can move the line. He is about as good as you can find for a ~60th roster man.

I say YES. Solid OL depth is very very hard to find out side of the draft.

Lions O Line currently
Decker _____ Ragnow ____ Sewell
______ (Awosika), Farnoik, Sorsdal _____
Galvin, Neise, ____, muti, ____

They have no backup T right now.
Right now i say.
Resign Glasgow,
Resign Nelson and Skip for backup Tackles.

That really only leaves practice squad players (easy to get) and starting guard left.

Aka draft a guard top 100 and then sign a bunch of OL UDFA.

Skipper has done a great job filling in all over.
Okay, I get it. He’s not a starter. I wonder if some of us get that.
He adds versatility. He’s even a threat in the passing game.
