The Detroit Lions on Tuesday designated defensive end Ezekiel Ansah as their franchise player for 2018.
Ansah can sign the franchise tender at any time, which would fully guarantee the salary and place it all on the current year’s cap. The sides also have until July 16 to agree to a multiyear extension.
After 32 tackles and eight sacks his rookie year and 49 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 2014, Ansah had a breakout season in 2015. He had 47 tackles that season along with 14.5 sacks — enough to earn second-team All-Pro honors by The Associated Press.

The Eagles on the other hand, skew much, much higher, with an average star rating of 3.5. Recruiting fans scanning the Eagles’ roster will be familiar with those like Nelson Agholor, Tim Jernigan, Brandon Graham, Nigel Bradham, Ronald Darby, and Alshon Jeffery.
Perhaps the most interesting story on the Eagles is Lane Johnson. In high school, Johnson was 6’5 and 202 pounds. He went to junior college and just kept growing. And growing. And growing.
