COMPLETED DEAL: A $66.7 MILLION CONTRACT HAS BEEN AGREED TO BETWEEN THE MICHIGAN AND OHIO STATE

Michigan nickelback Mike Sainristil has vaulted himself into first-round consideration with an impressive evaluating season leading up to the NFL Draft in Detroit on April 25. Sainristil ran a 4.47 40-yard-dash time at the 2024 NFL Combine, showcasing the straight-line speed that made him one of the best defensive playmakers in the nation last season.

On Friday, Sainristil was in a jovial mood as he replied to a post from a Detroit-based sports media network on X, tagging former Michigan teammate and current Detroit Lions edge-rusher Aidan Hutchinson.

Sainristil was listed as the potential missing link for the Lions’ 2024 secondary and the ex-Michigan DB seemed excited about the prospect of playing for the Great Lakes State’s NFL team.

Hutchinson was a Consensus All-American for the Wolverines in 2021. He finished as the Heisman Trophy runner-up to Alabama QB Bryce Young and a Maxwell Award finalist at the end of that season.

After being drafted second overall by the Lions, Hutchinson was named Pepsi’s Rookie of the Year in 2022 and made his first Pro Bowl in 2023, a season during which he led the Lions to the franchise’s first division title since 1993.
