  1. Even IF the Lions draft a QB this year, it’s a good move. Lions need a 53 man roster, even if rebuilding. Injuries happen. Players become available and the team has to pay both of them (injured player/injury replacement). Restructuring a huge contract to reduce the hit in the cash strapped year and move it forward to when you have money is smart business. A $5 million cap hit is not that hard to work around if you know what you are doing. Much easier than working around $20 million more this season.
  2. Not really. You just want to find a reason to hate it, but there isn’t one. It was a good move.
  3. Yeah future years with massive cap increase and not having over $40 million in dead cap. No downside.
  4. I took the whole week off the week of the draft. I’m pulling extra time until then so I won’t be around much until then.
  5. Because the cap is lowered this season and will expand greatly starting next season. Of that $22 million, roughly $10 million will be used for rookie contracts. That leaves $12 million as wiggle room for players cut when rosters are reduced down and injury replacements throughout the season. And whatever is not used can be rolled over into next seasons salary cap. There really was no downside to restructuring Goffs contract.
  6. Sorry guys, Can't really be on today but I support the players already signed in UDFA and trust you guys to grab some good talent.
  7. I have no problem with the Lions drafting Waddle, but not if Sewell is on the board.
  8. If Lance is there at #7, Detroit trades that pick. No chance they stay there and draft Smith.
  9. Love the trade for the Lions. Hate Parsons. I want no part of him. I hope the Lions don't touch him with a 10 foot pole.
  10. Detroit Lions Draft Pick 1.7 (#7) - Penei Sewell, 6'6" 331lbs OT, Oregon- BPA at #7. Lions bolster their OL with a generational OT. Not sure what else needs to be said here. Pick 2.9 (#41) - Asante Samuel Jr., 5'10" 183lbs CB, Florida State- Samuel has high upside. Aubrey Pleasant will have fun coaching up Samuel and Oruwariye in the secondary after our former GM traded away last years #3 overall pick. A little on the smaller side, but outstanding instincts and a true playmaker. Pick 2.11 (#43) - Carlos "Boogie" Basham Jr., 6'5" 285lbs DE, Wake Forest- Lions have

  12. I'd much rather double up at one position and build a strength (SOMEWHERE! ANYWHERE!) than to patch things across the board. I've always been on the mindset that free agency is to address needs, draft is to address talent.
