OL - DET
Week 8 Outlook
LT Taylor Decker has agreed to terms on a six-year, $85M deal ($37.5M guaranteed) with the Detroit Lions.
The Lions have now locked up their star LT for another six years. The former 2016 first-round pick will be tasked with protecting QB Matthew Stafford for six more seasons.
Offensive lineman Taylor Decker caught the only touchdown pass of the day for the Lions in Week 13 from 11 yards out.
It is not good when an offensive lineman has 20 percent of your touchdown receptions over the last five weeks but that is the case for the Lions right now.
The Detroit Lions have selected Ohio State OT Taylor Decker with the 16th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Lions will upgrade their offensive tackle position with the selection of Taylor Decker. Decker could start in 2016 on the right side as they have Riley Reiff on the left. Although if Reiff struggles, Decker could find himself protecting Matthew Stafford's blindside.
