HERE COMES THE LAW. WILL TY SIGN WITH THE LIONS?
The debate the next few days could be where do the Lions play corner back Ty Law in a crowded secondary?
That's if Law passes his physical Monday with the Lions and looks good during a planned work out at the Lions practice facility. If every thing checks out it appears as if the Lions will sign Law, who has been telling reporters this signing is not as much about the money as it is about playing for a contender.
The Lions would upgrade their secondary if they sign Law and he's 100 percent following an injury that forced him to miss more than half the season. Law struggled during early workouts but he recently said he was close to 100 percent and was ready to make one team a contender.
Let's hope he is 100 percent because Law could slide right into the left corner spot next to Dre' Bly and replace Fernando Bryant who struggled last season in part because of injuries. Bryant did not meet expectations and would give the Lions some nice depth coming off the bench along with Chris Cash and R.W. McQuarters.
If Law plays safety he'd play along side Kenoy Kennedy and it would mean reduced playing time for Terrence Holt who I think is going to be a terrific player. The problem is some on the coaching staff are not convinced he is physical enough.
It appears as if Law is turning down offers from the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs. He seemed destined for New York because of the retirement of corner back Donnie Abraham.
So does this mean Law believes the Lions are a contender or just playing the most money? I spoke to a front officer person today outside the Lions organization who told me to chalk up a Lions NFC North Division title.
Maybe this will be an interesting season after all.
