TJ Lang to Detroit?

T.J. Lang #70 of the Green Bay Packers looks on against the Dallas Cowboys during the game at Lambeau Field

T.J. Lang #70 of the Green Bay Packers looks on against the Dallas Cowboys during the game at Lambeau Field

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was Green Bay's director of football operations the year the Packers selected Lang in the fourth round of the NFL draft. The Packers defeated the Cowboys 28-7. The Packers are still in play for Lang's services, but two other teams have emerged as their primary competition: the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks.

If the Lions aren't able to lure Lang, Laken Tomlinson and Joe Dahl would be in line to compete for the starting right guard job after Larry Warford agreed to sign with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent. On Thursday, a flurry of verbal agreements led to a certain Green Bay Packers guard being the top offensive lineman available who is not yet committed to a team for 2017.

Lang, a southeast Michigan native who played his college ball at Eastern Michigan, has spent his entire eight-year career with the Packers after being selected by the organization in the fourth round of the 2009 National Football League draft.

He likely won't come cheap.

Zeitler wasn't the only guard making big money on Thursday.

In 13 games past year, Lang didn't allow a single sack or hit on Aaron Rodgers, an impressive stastic when considering Rodgers held onto the ball longer than everybody except Tyrod Taylor last season. Former Cowboy Ronald Leary also reportedly cashed in on the first day of free agency, reportedly agreeing to a four-year, $36 million deal with Denver. Schneider's familiarity with him, and the fact he played right tackle and left tackle in the first years of his career with Green Bay, make Lang an intriguing Seahawks option.
