Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah reportedly will sign his $17.1 million franchise tag and report to the team’s first offseason conditioning program Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
“To have an outside edge-rusher that can be as dominant as Ziggy is something that was really appealing to [head coach Matt Patricia],” general manager Bob Quinn told Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com of the decision to tag Ansah. “Matt has had a lot of great players in New England, and I think Ziggy would rank right up there with some of the best edge players Matt has ever coached.”
