Lions | No franchise tag plans

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 10:09:43 -0800

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew once again reiterated that he has no plans to use the franchise tag on any of the team's players this offseason. Last year, the team placed the tag on DE Cliff Avril, but they would have to spend $12.7 million if they wanted to tag him again this season. S Louis Delmas (knees) would have been a candidate for the tag had he not injured both of his knees in the last two years. Detroit wants to re-sign Delmas, but to a short-term deal for less than the $6.8 million tag for safeties. The pool of free-agent safeties may be thin this year because of the cheap price to franchise them, and the Lions need to sign two safeties this offseason, which could drive up Delmas' price on the open market. DE Michael Johnson is a candidate for the franchise tag, too.

Giants | Ross to see more time at safety

Fri, 11 Dec 2009 17:16:37 -0800

Michael Eisen, of Giants.com, reports New York Giants CB Aaron Ross has been playing safety since returning from a hamstring injury. Ross, who previously played cornerback his entire career, has been seeing time in nickel and dime defenses because CBs Corey Webster and Terrell Thomas have become entrenched as the starting corners. Safety appears to be the place the Giants need Ross most right now, as S Michael Johnson (groin) is questionable for Week 14. Ross said he is seeing more snaps each week, and he will take on whatever role the Giants ask him to. In regards to playing safety, he said he still has some things to learn, but he is getting more comfortable at the position.
