Ricky Wagner expects to sign with Lions, sources say

The Buffalo Bills are actively looking for an upgrade to replace free agent right tackle Jordan Mills, and per National Football League reporter Michael Lombardi, they're aiming high: Ricky Wagner, the top free agent available, is in their crosshairs. Was Wagner really one of the Ravens ten best players?

But the praise goes well beyond PFF.

A fifth-round draft pick in 2013, Wagner has started 47 of 62 games in Baltimore over the past four seasons.




With a limited offensive tackle prospect group in the draft, the Texans will have to turn to the free agent market to ensure they have a player in place before the draft arrives. With Wagner, there could also be some concern because he struggled in 2015 between a good 2014 season and a standout 2015 season. It isn't to win the Super Bowl in March with the biggest signing. With so many teams needing the talented right tackle, his price will be sure to soar, making some general managers balk at the type of price that will be payed for a right tackle. First, this is how the market is trending.

The problem here is that Rick Wagner is a right tackle. The potential internal replacements for Wagner are James Hurst, De'Ondre Wesley and Stephane Nembot.

The report from ESPN's Adam Schefter indicates that the Lions are expected to sign Wagner when the new league year begins on Thursday at 4 PM Eastern. They could structure the contract so that the biggest cap hits are in the backend of the contract. "You got to look at not only the perceived lack of depth on the offensive line in this year's draft, I think there's some guys in the middle rounds that might be a little bit undervalued that could rise in the process here over the next month or so". Both Minnesota and Chicago had serious offensive line problems in 2016, and both were reportedly seeking out Wagner's services. Teams like the Vikings, Bears, and Lions all will be in the hunt for Ricky Wagner.
