Bighill playing for Claybrooks is an exciting situation for the Lions.

If Biggie goes to BC then Solly leaves. No way that Hervey is crazy enough to tie up 650k in his starting Lbers.

Solly is at 250k it was reported...and Biggie most likely be in that range...230 at the least I bet...and if they resign Awe..that will be at least 120k...and if it is Lokombo...being a proven National with NFL experience...likely more...so yup..at the very least 600+k in 3 linebackers...not to mention Herdman who resigned for I would bet closing in on the 85 to 90k range..a lot of scratch to pay when you still have to resign, or replace Burnham/Posey/Arcenault...not to mention add a top flight QB which may run into a real bidding war especially if BLM bolts to NFL and you could conceivably have 3-4 teams fighting over a couple guys...

Sure makes our situation look pretty good when we have a lot of our core money already allocated and we know what we have to spend on a key free agent without sacrificing other areas

Bighill will probably get 250k, Solly 250, and then Lokombo at around 150k. If it's Awe then likely shave 30k off that number. Still an incredibly expensive trio of LBers. When you spend that kind of money on three defenders you either have to commit to starting 4-5 guys on rookie contracts around them and in a year where recruitment will be challenging I can't see that happening.

I think you might be a little high.  Solly signed a  two year deal worth $225k plus another $20k in incentives (which he would not have reached this year), but I think he extended into 2019. 3downnation would only say he was "over $200k".

Being that as it may, I think you can sign Bighill for less than $250k, probably closer to $200k.  I think 150k for Lokombo is right. 

I would guess that it would take $575k for Bighill, Solly and Lokombo, which is still a pretty big ticket. My personal theory is Hervey only chases Bighill if he thinks Elimimian is turning out to be too expensive.

The only way Bighill leaves for BC is if Solly goes elsewhere first. They are not both playing in BC.

Hervey is now GM. He does not want to invest that large of a percentage of the cap into one position group.

Whatever the hard numbers are we'll never know for sure, but I find it extremely doubtful that any team has two LBer at 200k on their team. It just puts too much SMS pressure on other areas of the team.
