10 QUESTIONS WITH TWENTYMAN: Would Lions consider trading No. 2 pick?

20man: Usually about a third of the roster turns over in any given year. It was a little bit more last year, but that’s expected when a new regime comes in. It was closer to 50 percent.

The Lions have 34 free agents – the highest number I can remember in my 13 years covering the team – which could lend itself to a little bit more than a third again this year, but 15 of those soon-to-be free agents are exclusive rights free agents, which means the Lions control their rights, and if the team wants them back they have to play for Detroit or sit out the 2022 season. Some names among that list include: Long snapper Scott Daly, punter Jack Fox, running back Godwin Igwebuike, wide receiver Tom Kennedy, guard Tommy Kraemer, outside linebacker Jessie Lemonier, tackle Matt Nelson, kicker Riley Patterson, linebacker Anthony Pittman, cornerback Bobby Price and tight end Brock Wright.

I think a good mark every year is to expect the roster to turn over somewhere between 30-40 percent.
