Blockbuster Trade Proposal Ships $135 Million Edge Rusher to Lions

Since general manager Brad Holmes and head coach Dan Campbell joined the team, the Detroit Lions have been gradually strengthening their defense, but one source indicates it might be time for a significant acquisition.

Bleacher Report speculated that in addition to rising star Aidan Hutchinson, the Lions would try to acquire Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa. According to the study, a more potent pass rush would help the Lions’ chances of winning the Super Bowl by relieving pressure on Detroit’s faltering secondary.

Lions Participate in Trade Proposal With High Draft Pick

According to the trade proposal from Bleacher Report, Bosa would join the Lions for a second-round pick (number 61 overall). Although it’s uncertain if the Chargers will trade Bosa for a pick that low, several sources have hinted that he might be moving this summer.The Chargers have a lot of salary cap space to clear, and they may think about moving Bosa to make additional room, according to SI.com’s James Brizuela.

If the Lions wish to challenge Bosa, they may face some opposition. Insider Daniel Popper of the Chargers (95.7) The San Francisco 49ers may be involved because Bosa wants to play alongside his brother, Niners edge rusher Nick Bosa, according to The Game.

Popper stated, “Joey Bosa has ultimately been rather open about the fact that he has always wanted to play with his brother.” “Bosa’s base pay is $15 million this year and $17 million the following year. I’m not very fluent in the Niners’ cap issue, but that’s what you would be taking on for you know, 24 and 25. We’ll see, then. I believe the Chargers ought to give it a hearing. And if they’re paying attention, I believe Joey Bosa would fit in a lot of spots.

Bleacher Report has previously speculated that the Lions would target Bosa. Writer Alex Kay hypothesized in February that Bosa might be the missing component to Detroit’s patchy pass rush.

Joey Bosa would be Detroit’s ideal target, according to Kay’s writing. “In addition to being a superb pass-rusher who has amassed an impressive 67 sacks in his first 93 career games, he is also a tough, industrious player who would fit right in with the tough bunch head coach Dan Campbell has put together.”

On Aidan Hutchinson, Lions High

The Lions, who selected Hutchinson with the second overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, seem pleased with the way he is developing, despite the fact that many insiders believe the team will strengthen its edge rush this offseason. In his first two seasons in the NFL, Hutchinson has racked up 21 sacks. The Michigan native talked about the progress he has witnessed from the team during that time.

“It’s crazy to see where we’re at now and to see that we’re breaking, we’re breaking those old words, we’re establishing new phrases,” Hutchinson said to NBC Sports’ Mike Tirico in January. “I grew up with the 0-16 team, growing up with just the ‘Same Old Lions’ term.” And as I’ve been thinking about it, I’ve realized that many young children are watching the lions that we currently have, and they get to grow up with this and what we’ll have for years to come. Thus, I’m glad for their children.
