  Lions | Robert Ayers let go    Tue Aug 28, 03:51 PM

Detroit Lions DE Robert Ayers was released Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Well that was quick. Ayers was just signed by the Lions on Monday...and he's been released on Tuesday. The market was cool for the veteran defensive end and this occurrence shouldn't help his stock.

  Lions | Robert Ayers signs with Lions    Mon Aug 27, 11:29 AM

Free-agent DE Robert Ayers (Buccaneers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Monday, Aug. 27. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: In two seasons with the Buccaneers, Ayers only compiled 8.5 sacks in 24 games (12 each year). The veteran was released in March and has drawn little interest on the open market. The Lions needed some depth, and Ayers gives them a veteran pass rusher who could play a rotational role.

Footballguys view: Jacquizz Rodgers, Charles Sims, and Peyton Barber will split the work in the backfield with Martin out. The offensive line is missing two starters, and the backup center, Hawley, will force them to stretch their depth even further.

  Buccaneers | Big year coming for Noah Spence?    Sat May 13, 10:18 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Noah Spence said he has put on more muscle but weighs about 10 pounds less than last season, and DT Gerald McCoy said Spence is ready for a 'breakout year' while DE Robert Ayers said Spence could be a '15-plus sack guy' this season.

Footballguys view: Spence has amazing upside as a pro, and we could see him as a double-digit sack guy for multiple years in the NFL. He fell to the second round of the 2016 NFL draft due to character concerns from back in his days at Ohio State. Spence transferred to Eastern Kentucky and has stayed on the right path since then.
