With Lions LB Jordan Dizon Out, What About Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson?

New, 9 comments

Lions LB Jordan Dizon appears to be done for the year with an injury. Though Lions officials haven't confirmed, that's what folks are thinking at this point.

That brings up the question: Who will replace him?

One candidate would be Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson. The Lions had internal discussions about DJ at the beginning of the summer, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News, and may entertain the idea again.

Would the Chiefs trade DJ?

In my mind, he's a talented player and the Chiefs shouldn't be in a position to get rid of talented players. However, he's on a one-year deal and the Chiefs seemingly don't want to play him a lot for some reason. If he's not even a starter, then it would probably be in both sides best interest to move on.
