  • Lions' John Cominsky: Agrees to pay cut

    Cominsky agreed to restructure his contract with the Lions on Tuesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Cominsky saw a drop in production from his 2022 numbers in 2023, recording 15 fewer pressures, along with 2.0 fewer sacks, despite playing two more games. The 28-year-old was due to be paid $5.1 million but agreed to a $2.1 million pay cut, bringing his 2024 cap hit down to $4.2 million instead of $6.3 million.

  • Lions' John Cominsky: Logs 2.0 sacks in 2023

    Cominsky recorded 36 tackles, 2.0 sacks and one pass defended over 16 regular-season games in 2023.

    Cominsky finished 2023 with the second-most snaps among Lions defensive linemen behind Aidan Hutchinson while starting 11 of the 16 games for which he was available. While he is a solid player, the Lions finished with the ninth-fewest sacks (41) last season largely due to a lack of production behind Hutchinson, who finished sixth in the league with 11.5 sacks. Cominsky seems to have a good chance to stick in Detroit in 2024 even though his potential release could open $4.6 million in cap space, but it would not be a surprise if the Lions look for an upgrade during the offseason.

  • Lions' John Cominsky: Good to go versus Rams

    Cominsky (illness) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Rams.

    Cominsky popped up on the Lions' injury report Friday after coming down with an illness, but he's healthy enough to suit up for the Lions' playoff contest. He finished the regular season with 36 tackles (14 solo), including 2.0 sacks, in 16 games.

  • Lions' John Cominsky: Could miss wild-card outing

    Cominsky (illness) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    Despite a full week of practice, Cominsky seems to be dealing with an illness that could hold him out of the Lions' wild-card affair. If the 28-year-old is unable to suit up Sunday, expect Josh Paschal to shoulder an increased workload on Detroit's defensive line.

  • Lions' John Cominsky: Back with Lions on two-year deal

    The Lions re-signed Cominsky to a two-year, $8.5 million contract Tuesday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

    Cominsky enjoyed a career year in Detroit last season, his first with the Lions after spending his first three years in Atlanta. With the ability to play off the edge and line up inside, Cominsky is a valuable piece in defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn's defense. Cominsky recorded four sacks and batted three passes in 14 appearances last season.
