  • Lions' Michael Brockers: Slowing down

    Brockers (ankle) recorded four tackles and one pass breakup over six games in 2022. Once a dependable piece up front, the 32-year-old Brockers showed clear signs of decline early on this year, and he was largely a healthy scratch for the majority of the games after Detroit's Week 6 bye, though he was listed as out with an ankle injury for the season's final contest. Considering the Lions can save nearly $14 million against the cap by parting ways with him this offseason, Brockers would need to take a hefty pay cut to return to the Motor City in 2023.

  • Rams' Michael Brockers: Returns to Rams after deal falls through
