Default Why no interest in Cody?

Anyone know why nobody has snatched up Shaun Cody. 6'4 310lb I really thought he would be signed up early but Ive heard very little mention of him.

He is a guy I really had hoped we would look at early on. Am I missing something here Is he asking too much WTF is going on in this world.

I remember a lot of people here being very high on him going into the draft in '05.

I didnt know anything about that. He is farily young 26 and was a high 2nd rounder. I must be missing something here. I know last year or so there were rumors flying that Denver and Detroit were in trade talks over this guy and foxworth.

With our Dline issues I'm just wondering why we would not look at this guy.

New Orleans will host Detroit defensive tackle Shaun Cody on a free-agent visit Monday, a source told FOXSports.com.
A 2005 second-round draft choice, Cody has started 11 games during his four seasons with the Lions. He finished last season with a career-high 36 tackles and three passes defensed.The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Clancy would likely serve as a backup behind Saints starting defensive tackles Sedrick Ellis and Kendrick Clancy.

He may still be over valuing himself. And He has been labeled an underachiever. That is a bit of a deathblow especially for DL

Nobody has signed him because he sucks.

People still equate him with his USC days....but as a pro, he has stunk.

4 years and only 1.5 sacks (and those came in his rookie year).

He has no power or strength and gets manhandled by offensive lineman.

Well that settles that thanks. I guess I was doing the same thing....thinking back to his college career.

I have also heard that he has zero work ethic and has done little to make himself better as a pro.

In other words....at USC he got by on ability....in the pros everyone has ability and you have to bust your ass.

You're thinking of Dan Cody, DE/OLB drafted by the Ravens several years back.

I don't know how you're grading him out, but however you did it you certainly missed last season.

He's never been a pass rush guy. He's a gap filler, run stuffing type. He was one of the lone bright spots on the Lions last year and played with a non-stop motor even when almost the entire rest of the unit around him was giving up.

If we still ran a 4-3 he'd be a worthwhile signing as a rotational NT. In the 3-4 he could probably make a pretty solid rotational strong side 5-tech DE. I'd be very happy with signing him.

He visited New Orleans this past Monday. He's clearly a second tier of FA guy, and behind the likes of Haynesworth, Canty, Haye, and Olshansky (who himself slipped to the second tier of FA signings), so this is just about when he should start getting attention.

I dont follow the lions obviously but between what you and SSJ say I'd think a huge "contract season" red flag would be flying at me.

Funny how you say this now but in the weeks leading up to FA he was being pimped by several people here. For some reason they are all silent now. Since none of them seem willing to show their faces I may have to go digging to remind myself who they are...

I know he is not a pass rusher, but I disagree on his performance. I get to watch the Lions quite a bit, living 45 minutes from Detroit, and have never been impressed with him.

Obviously, the rest of the league agrees, as nobody is tripping over themselves to sign him....and the ones that do are looking at him as a reserve/rotation guy.

Are the Lions making any attempt to re-sign him?
