Lions' Kerry Hyder: Signs ERFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder signed his exclusive-rights contract tender with the Lions on Monday, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

In just his second season in the league, Hyder accrued a team-high eight sacks while finishing ninth in total tackles. However, despite this level of production, he'll likely find himself in competition with Cornelius Washington and Brandon Copeland for the starting defensive end job opposite Ziggy Ansah this summer.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Tendered by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder, an exclusive-rights free agent, was tendered by the Lions on Wednesday, The Detriot News reports.

The tender locks Hyder in at the veteran minimum salary for 2017, which represents a bargain on the Lions' behalf considering the Texas Tech product led the team with eight sacks this past season.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Two sacks against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder recorded a pair of sacks and three tackles Sunday against the Vikings.

After going four games without a sack, Hyder broke out in a big way by getting to Sam Bradford twice. This was his second multi-sack effort of 2016, and he now has seven sacks on the year. As an interior lineman, he's a fantastic IDP option in leagues that require a defensive tackle to start.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Notches two sacks in regular season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder logged three tackles, including two sacks, in the Lions' 39-35 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Following a three-sack performance in the team's preseason finale, Hyder clearly carried his momentum into the regular season. He isn't an overly-powerful player, nor quick, but has demonstrated a high motor and drew praise for his relentless effort from the Lions' coaching staff in the preseason. If he can work himself further into the rotation along Detroit's defensive line, and simply be given the opportunity to tally high tackle numbers, Hyder could develop into a legitimate IDP option over the course of the 2016 campaign.
