Ansah, who turns 27 this month, was named to the 2015 Pro Bowl and earned second team All-Pro honors last season after leading the Lions in sacks with a career-high 14.5, which also ranked third in the NFL. Ansah, the Lions' first-round (fifth overall) selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, became the team's first defensive end to be named to the Pro Bowl since 2002. His career totals include 46 games (44 starts), 128 total tackles, 30 sacks, nine forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
