Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Detroit Lions have signed defensive tackle Cory Redding to a seven-year, $49 million contract, including more than $16 million in guaranteed money. The contract will pay out more than $20 million over the first three years of the deal.
The seven year, $49 million maximum total is identical to the top value of deals given over the past 15 months to offensive linemen like Steve Hutchinson, Leonard Davis, Eric Steinbach, and the guy who signed with the Bills. You know, the guy who was so well known that we currently can't remember his name without looking it up? (We looked it up -- he's Derrick Dockery.)
The Lions had applied the franchise tag to Redding, and Monday at 4:00 p.m. EDT is the deadline for working out a long-term deal.
No offense to Redding, whose name is actually more recognizable than that of the guy who signed with the Bills, but that's a lot of money for a guy who has a total of zero Pro Bowls on his resume. And, in our view, the $16 million in guaranteed money and $7 million annual average will serve only to fan the flames that are likely raging now in the wake of the $72 million signed last week by Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney.
