NFC Notes: Draft Visits, Lions, Packers, Vikings


Colton Pouncey of The Athletic started to eye players set to be free agents in 2025 on the Lions and what their futures could look like beyond this season. Detroit has plenty of key contributors who are set to enter the final year of their contract.

  • Starting with QB Jared Goff, Pouncey notes both sides have expressed interest in an extension and HC Dan Campbell called it a priority. Pouncey believes Goff’s new contract will reflect his status as the team’s franchise signal caller.
  • Pouncey says an extension for WR Amon-Ra St. Brown could come as early as this offseason and expects a deal to get done as he is “one of the most important players in this locker room.” Pouncey thinks the deal could reach up to $28 million in annual value.
  • With the recent surge in salaries for defensive tackles, DT Alim McNeill is likely in for a massive pay raise next offseason. Pouncey adds “You have to think they’ll happily pay a homegrown talent who has reached this level.”
  • Pouncey names LT Taylor Decker, CB Carlton Davis III, RG Kevin Zeitler and DE Marcus Davenport as other players who will hit free agency after the season. Pouncey believes the upcoming draft will tell a lot about these players’ futures beyond this season.
