Mike Daniels signs with the Detroit Lions because of course

The former 4th round pick was a Pro Bowler as recently as 2017. 

This seemed inevitable:

A former fourth-round pick who turned 30 in May, Daniels was a Pro Bowler in 2017 but played in only 10 games in 2018 due to a foot injury.

Hello fellow Yoppers, Carlos and Samson. I was born in Milwaukee but moved to the UP (Escanaba) when I was in 3rd grade . Graduated high school there, but moved to LA after.

The Packers/ Lions games would have high stakes for bragging rights. My dad called the Packers/ Lions game "Super Sunday". It wasn't as fun going to the local watering hole after a loss to the Pussycats. Luckily, Favre and Rodgers have basically owned the kittys

A lot of Packer fans Coldworld said Daniels was in decline after last season, but a little research shows that is simply not the case.
Last year, he got hurt and still posted elite pass rushing numbers on the d-line. with a rating of 78.5 per PFF. He also was second only to Fletcher Cox in QB pressures among d-lineman in the 4th quarter despite missing 6 games. Stat lines do not tell the entire story on any player truthfully. He had 2 sacks 4 QB hits and 27 pressures in only 233 snaps, a little less than a third of what he normally plays. And I qoute per PFF, " Last season. He finished with a 78.5 pass-rush grade and pass-rushing productivity of 7.3, which rank ninth and sixth among qualifying interior defensive linemen, respectively. His 17.4% pass-rush win rate when shaded or head up on the guards ranked sixth among qualifiers, as well. Daniels was also one of the league’s best when the pressure was at its highest, utterly dominating as a pass-rusher in the fourth quarter. His pass-rush win percentage of 21.2% in the fourth quarter was the third-highest among DLs with at least 30 pass-rush attempts in the fourth quarter last year. Daniels also produced a pass-rush grade of 76.6 in the fourth quarter, which was the 12th-highest mark among qualifiers at his position." So everyone saying his play fell off is completely wrong. Personally I think releasing him a year early was a big mistake that I hope does not come back to bite them in the rear. Although after signing with Detroit the chances of that happening just went waay up. Worse case scenario is he works over Billy Turner in the Lions game and Packers lose. Best case is Turner shuts him down and Packers win. Let's hope it's the latter.

Lions just guaranteed $9.1 million for one year in a 10 million contract. Insane unless he plays at 2016 level not even that of 2017, surely?

If the Packers assessment is right, Mike made out like a bandit. Prove it contract with no risk and chance for another. Desperation in Detroit perhaps? Certainly smells like it.

If we can’t beat the Lions plus Mike Daniels, better to view this as a season preparing for 2020. Like it or not, that’s the anticipated reality. This does not elevate them over the Bears or Vikings even if he is as good as he was 3 years ago and we need to beat them.

In the meantime, sign Clark. He is someone I truly would not want us lining up against in the near future.

For the Lions to guarantee Daniels nearly $8 million tells me that either Daniels has a great agent or the Lions GM is desperate or a bad GM or all of the above.

Nothing against Daniels, I’m happy for him that he got a great deal. But almost $8 million for an injured 30+ year old DL with 2 sacks, 5 QB hits and 10 solo tackles in 2018 sounds like desperately over paying to me.

Maybe the Lions will over pay for Perry as well. Thanks, Since ‘61

I don't have much use for PFF ratings. I have no idea what their rating assumptions are if they have any at all. The bottom line is that Daniels had 2 sacks, 5 QB hits and 10 solo tackles in 10 games. If that type of production is worth $8 million what is the point of watching any player in this league. All a player needs to do is basically show up and make one tackle per game and one sack every 5 games.

If I extrapolate Daniels numbers over 16 games he would have 16 tackles and 3 sacks over 16 games. Woopie!!! I guess that would justify $12 million guaranteed. Why? Because PFF ratings. I don't care how PFF rates the players, 10 solo tackles and 2 sacks in 10 games are marginal results for a starting NFL DL. Case closed. Thanks, Since '61

FWIW, Lancaster, Lowry and of course Clark all got higher PFF grades than Daniels. Lowry just got $6.77M AAV, and Daniels got $9.1M, but of course, Daniels was a UFA while Lowry got an extension. PFF noted that Daniels had 5 games in which his run defense grade was sub-sixty (which means pretty bad).

PFF gave him stellar pass-rushing grades on 3rd down and in the 4th quarter and a quite good overall pass-rushing grade.

Since I believe in today's NFL that pass-rushing is more important than run defense, I view Daniels as a valuable player. I also suspect that Daniels' low run defense grade was probably a blip - lots of double teams, doing too much due to the poor edge set by CM3 and others, etc.

In agreement with GB going with the younger DL players and saving additional money to sign Clark and Martinez.

Also think Boyle will move up to earn the backup QB position this Preseason as he shows a strong accurate arm and may prove to be the Packers next QB if he keeps improving.

While I get all the comments about Daniel's I feel more of them are from posters looking backwards vs forward. The release of Daniels to me while a surprise was ho-hum! Even forgetting the salary cap. First of all I totally trust Gute, plus I like a lot of the young DL currently on the team. I think a few of them will provide more than even what Mike would have been able to provide this year. Have much more upside at significantly lower salary.

Facing Daniel's twice per year is a nothing burger. He isnt that good where he is going to disrupt the Packs offense on any consistent basis. May he make an impact play or two probably but so would whoever likely would have played Daniel's spot on the DL in the first place.

Only concern would be is he doesnt try to take out Rodgers.

I think the Lions saw a opportunity, and I can't say I blame them. They already had a formidable line. Have a nice amount of cap space. Can load up guaranteed money in the 1st year, and offer a chance at playing GB 2x if he's interested in that. And Daniels probably has more in the tank than what people think... Can't say im too worried, but Daniels is not far removed from being a absolute terror and constantly eating double teams. It'll be interesting to see his battle against our O-line.

What's missing is a bit of info, so I'll share what I know. Anyone trading for him would have had to take on his 10.8 million cap hit from the Packers. Most GM's are actually very smart people and knew he'd be released by the fact Gute was shopping him around to multiple teams. None wanted to take on a cap hit of 10.8 million when they could just wait til he was released and bid what they thought his worth is. He didn't get 10.8 million from the Lions and might not be there if they had to pay basically 11 million for this season. Mike Garafalo, explained all of this over on NFL Network yesterday.

My point being 1.9 million dollars is not a hill of beans as you say. If it was why didn't they just trade for him since they obviously want him enough to pay him 9 million dollars a year, and not risk losing him to another team? Why take the chance on losing out on a player you obviously covet for a hill of beans as you so eloquently put it? Gute would've taken a 6 or a 7 as opposed to nothing. So I think it's pretty obvious the Lions don't consider almost two million a hill of beans either. Other than an attempt to throw shade my way, what's your point. I think I made mine.

I don’t see it that way. It is possible that the Lions believed that he would be cut, but it might have more to do with increasing availability issues in that part of their roster.

If the foot is any kind of issue at all, this contract is really surprising given it’s structure.

Generally though, if you are going to cut a player, a basic question should be how will I feel if he is lining up for a division rival. While cap clearly played a part—we are still paying the price of reversing the roster decline in the latter years of Thompson—the Packers clearly viewed Daniels 2019 as not the player of 2016-17.

As such, I don’t doubt that they concluded they could live with it. Those are the kinds of decisions good head offices have to make. Some will be wrong in the short term but if it means Clark is retained long term and perhaps Martinez or others, the logic is hard to argue with.

For those jumping off the cliff here, I assume that you had little faith in the team to start with. One player does not make a team and looking at the likes of Adams and Brown during camp yesterday, it’s possible that the Packers have replacements already in line to replace the 3 sacks etc that Since‘61 points out was the projection had he not got injured.

I think overall you're right, Rak. In a trade, GB eats the $2.4M signing bonus proration plus the $400K work out bonus, or $2.8M of that $10.7M cap number you cited. The real cap hit to the acquiring team is $7.91M plus game active bonus IIRC (OTC and Sportrac already took down his GB deal so I am going from memory - I believe it was $312K in LTBE game active). But the contract called for $500K in game active bonuses, so the acquiring team gets his contract which has a cap hit of $8.2M if Daniels plays 16 games.

There apparently isn't enough difference between $8.2M and $9.1 for teams to fall over themselves in their hurry to send a draft pick to GB to save .9M on Daniels when they can wait. I guess if I had wanted Daniels I'd have tossed a 7th GB's way just to make sure he didn't go elsewhere, but I don't always understand GMs or their thinking.

If I was a Lions fan I’d grab on to any semblance of hope and self respect too. No one would believe me either.

Now if they just weren't the Lions and didn't play in Michigan all that might actually mean something. This season will more of the same for Detroit, you won't even sniff the playoffs.The Browns and Bengals will win a SB over the next millennia before the Lions will. If the NFL was a pond the Lions would be pond scum! And yes,even the most agile person can slip on some pond scum from time to time.

Are you referring to the Detroit Lions who haven't won anything since 1957? Are they even still in the league? Go back to a Lions site and continue your delusional rants with with that sorry lot. See if you can find tapes of Bobby Layne to cry over. Your team is working on 63+ years of futility. Let's not forget zero Super Bowl appearences. That is 0 for forever. Apparently things are so bad for the Lions you are actually hoping for just a QB sack to be satisfied and aren’t even close to thinking the Lions can actually win a game. When was that last Super Bowl they won? That’s right, never. When was the last time they made it to a Super Bowl? Again never. The nightmare just goes on and on.

And speaking of Aaron Rodgers which Lions QB since 1957 would the Lions not trade straight up for Aaron Rodgers? Thanks for playing? Come back and give us a laugh again in another 62 years. Thanks, Since '61

Why are you here? You add nothing of value to the discussion of Packer football. Jump off the roof of your house onto your driveway head first. Thanks

TheYopFlops,

The great motor city historian may have gotten a couple of facts correct. Yeah for the historian. (but we already knew that)

The great motor city "swami" has a dirty crystal ball though. Maybe dirtied up with "snacks." But to answer your question, maybe a displaced beard hair.

Sacks happen. Ask Stafford with his running for his life.

Anyone feeling any angst over this Mike Daniels release by GB and sign by Det needs to take a vacation. Neither move will prevent GB from moving forward.
The same should be understood with Matthews and Perry.
Remember, these guys got us nowhere when we had them and now the Packers on defense have the best chance to change that....move on already. Their assumed great play has been a figment of your imaginations for a while now.

"Remember, these guys got us nowhere when we had them"
Where have we been since signing Aaron Jones, Bhak, Martinez, Adams, Lowry, King, and a host of other Packers. Should Gute get rid of all of them too? What an asinine comment to make!

Those players are all young and relatively inexperienced, with the exception of Bakh, who may be the best pass protecting left tackle in football. Not sure I follow your point.

That's a quote from Taryn not me, hence the quotation marks. I'm just pointing out the comment is asinine because it applies to every player on the team basically.

" What an asinine comment to make."

What's asinine is your inability to understand without having to have pictures draw out for you. How simple does something have to be for you. I wonder if you can deduce how much one plus one is without having to see it written out for you....let me help you.

Nice try but what's asinine is your negativity in day to day life. And your inability to communicate and relay cognitive thought properly. Like I said your comment can be applied to every player who was not on the last SB team even though you tried to apply it to only 3 players in Perry ,Mathews, and Daniels. Yet you want to know if I can add? Can you? Do you even understand what you're saying or do you say it because it's negative and carries negative vibrations just like you? I've seen hundreds of your post and have never seen one single positive thing said in any one of them.
Why don't you go where you'll do the most good for the Packers if you're truly a Packers fan. GO trolling NFC teams to bring down their positive vibes and kill their brain cells projecting your negative thought process. Although I do get some good laughs as everything you post, you post as if it's matter of fact when in fact it's just your obtuse negative opinion. Life must've been real cruel to you that all you can do is sit around and denigrate something you claim to love. That being said I'll pray for a better life for your pets, husband and children next go around in their lives. I would rather rot 6 feet under than have to be stuck in such a negative energy vortex for my life. Have a nice life slowly rotting your spirit from within through negativity.

Interesting. Lions just got worse, but then look who their OC is. Wants to use TEs and run between the tackles apparently. Sounds like Daniels would have had a light workload against them anyway.

The Free Press links this explicitly to the Daniels signing. Interesting article that suggests considerable doubts in Detroit to me. If the Packers are right about Daniels, I fear there will be jobs lost in Detroit over this.

Will GB look at Riddick? That would be interesting on a number of levels.

Big guys don't get over foot injuries very quick...factor in age and it takes them even longer. I doubt Daniels is going to be very effective for quite some time...and if he plays anyway it will take longer...and increase the chance of reinjuring his foot. I think it's the same reasoning as to why they never really considered signing Wilkerson? Mike Daniels has the heart of a warrior so I expect he'll try to play. He was one of my favorite Packers...I wish him well !

AgrippaLII,

Every team has you take a physical. So I have to believe he is good to go physically. Age is age.

I wish him well too. He was a good Packer.
