07:02 PM ET 03.18 | March Madness is currently dominating the sports world, but NFL free agency is still alive and well and there remain plenty of solid and talented names on the market hunting for a new home. One of those guys is defensive end Osi Umenyiora who is reportedly drawing some interest from the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins. Umenyiora makes sense on both teams, but he also acts as a head-scratching move as well. With the Lions, Umenyiora could be plugged in opposite Jason Jones, giving the Lions one of the most powerfully talented defensive fronts in the entire league. Coupled with Ndamukong Suh and Jones, Umenyiora has a chance to truly flourish in the Lions defense, but he's still an injury risk and after dealing with Nick Fairley for two seasons, the Lions aren't going to want to spend high on an aging injury risk.

He could help them, when healthy!

Glad to see him out of NY.

Why would anybody want to pay big bucks for a player who is injured prone, doesn't play every down, and is an under achiever.

He's too old.

The Bucs should get him to replace Bennett;
They need another situational pass rusher!
