If they aren't able to re-sign any of their impending free agents this offseason, the Detroit Lions will have six new starters on the defensive side of the ball. One of the areas hit particularly hard by the scheduling of their recent contracts is DE: they've already released Kyle Vanden Bosch this offseason, while Cliff Avril, Lawrence Jackson and Willie Young are all hitting free agency (Young is an RFA).
