It is tough to imagine another team even offering a fourth round pick for Crosby, thus making it quite difficult for Detroit to part ways with him.
Offensive linemen are key to the success of any offense, and losing Crosby may not be good for Detroit's offense should things not go as planned with players higher up on the depth chart.
If Detroit simply allows him to play out his contract, a team may offer up starter money when Crosby becomes a free agent, earning Detroit a coveted compensatory pick.
Blast from the past. We talked about Crosby in the 2018 draft in here. I was hoping we take him where we took Haynes but Marty didn’t think we needed Ts, well until the next year when he reached got Little.
Haynes flashed a little bit he never had a shot to start. It’s too bad we didn’t set a condition on those two Marty led drafts to make sure we were only taking guys who had a legit shot as being full time starters and didn’t have big red Xs on them based on the combine, Senior Bowl or pro-days. Might have avoided Grier, Little, Gaulden, Grier, Scarlett, Miller and Haynes and instead got guys like Crosby, McCoy, Omenihu and others. They were all sitting there but we kept taking the red headed step children.
