The above article talks a bit about him and his situation with the Lions. Solid if not spectacular is one way they described his performance in 2018, got beat by the better DTs but held his own against the rest of the league, something like that. Has versatility to play the 3 IOL spots, but apparntly not the greatest at run-blocking. With the Lions’ increased emphasis this year on the running game, the Lions evidently feel they’ll do better with Ragnow at Center and GG sliding over to RG. We shall see I guess, a lot depends on who is at the LG position. Neither Aboushi or Wiggins is supposedly all that good at run-blocking either, which does sorta give one pause for thought. At this point, it doesn’t look like Crosby is getting much of a look inside, but Dahl apparently is getting looks everywhere, so things are wide open for that 5th startng job on the OL. At least IMHO.
No news yet on GG and his contract extension; I do hope they can get that done, but maybe the guy wants to hit FA for more money if the Lions are lowballing him somewhat. If he doesn’t sign then he runs the risk of an injury that costs him a lot of money as an FA, so we’ll see how it goes.
PS: I just don’t think Beau Ben is NFL-ready yet. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think he needs a year to sort of learn the ropes and the tricks of the trade. Plus getting a little bigger and stronger maybe.
