  • Lions' Alex Anzalone: Re-signs on one-year deal

    The Lions re-signed Anzalone to a one-year contract worth up to $4 million Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Anzalone suffered a season-ending shoulder injury late December after suiting up for 14 games in 2021, but reports suggest he won't face a long-term recovery. After posting a career-high 78 tackles (49 solo), to go with one sack, seven pass breakups and one interception, Anzalone has earned another shot to prove himself in Detroit's linebacker corps.

  • Lions' Alex Anzalone: Done for season

    Anzalone (shoulder) is out for the rest of the season, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

    Anzalone left the Lions' win over the Cardinals on Sunday early with the injury. The team doesn't believe it is a long-term issue, but severe enough to keep him out the last three weeks of the season. Anzalone will be a free agent if the Lions don't sign him to a new deal before March, and he has had shoulder issues in the past that could impact his market in the offseason, Burke separately reports.

  • Lions' Alex Anzalone: Goes on injured reserve

Fortunately for Anzalone, he's not expected to face a long-term recovery period, which suggests he'll avoid surgery. The 27-year-old wraps up his first season in Detroit with 78 tackles and an interception over 14 games.

  • Lions' Alex Anzalone: Nine stops Sunday

    Anzalone registered nine tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 16-16 tie with the Steelers.

    Anzalone continues to be a very consistent producer for the Lions this season, recording at least four tackles in every game and seven-plus tackles five times. The 2017 third-round pick will likely remain a high-floor option in deeper IDP leagues, but his production is limited due to his lack of sacks and forced turnovers.
