  1. Trade: TE Michael Roberts to the Patriots

    Green Bay just picked up Roberts.
  2. Lions sign a wide receiver

  3. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

    Shannon Sharpe, Bo Jackson, Terrell Davis, Adalius Thomas, Robert Mathis Brent Celek, Kam Chancellor, Trent Cole, Richard Sherman, Antonio Brown. Just a small group of 5th round or later talent over looked in the 1st four rounds. Don’t judge until they play!
  4. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

  5. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Ask Montez Sweat how good of a blocker he is. Senior vs Junior, Outback Bowl. Watch the highlights of that game. Hockenson owned Sweat. Worse game Sweat had all season. One of the reasons Hockenson numbers receiving were down, he was a monster blocker & was out there to stop the best defensive player every game. He is going to elevate our running game. Can’t wait to see him against the best defensive players in the league.
  6. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Sure the dream was Josh Allen falls to us but that didn’t happen. Picking Hockenson to me was the right move. Still plenty of defensive help can be picked up in 2nd & 3rd round and we may move to get an extra pick in one of those rounds. Picking A.J. at 8 works for me for 3 reasons. He will bolster our run game, he is a middle of the field threat that will keep defenses honest and finally & most importantly.... he’s a Red Zone threat! I am tired of kicking field goals and leaving points off the board.
  7. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    CJ Anderson was signed for $1.5 million with a $200,000 signing bonus. Not bad for a running back who won’t get a ton of touches but is capable of making a difference in short yardage plays.
  8. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    He’s 28, 4 yrs younger than Blount. Did quite well in the playoffs against top teams every week. Did well the final 2 games of the season. We got him cheaper than most. What’s wrong with this deal. Every year people over evaluate every little thing. And when he plays this season and has 80 plus yards in a game, no one will step forward & admit they were wrong. Just wait and see before condemning. I actually think we did well in FA across the board & still have plenty left to spend when after the draft teams start cutting more players. So relax
  9. With all the talk that Arizona looking to move Josh Rosen, should the Lions throw they’re hat into the ring. I think he would make a good back up to Stafford & won’t be rushed into a starting role, allowing him to study & learn. If the price was right to pick Rosen up, would want to pick him up??
  10. Polarizing Prospects

    Just got done watching the 2018 highlights on quite a few possibilities at #8. And one stood out over all the others to me. LSU LB Devon White. If he is there at #8 I would select him over anyone else & if an offer for a trade back comes in, it would have to be an offer you can’t refuse! This kid is 20 and is a beast at linebacker. He fills a glaring need on this team. His speed, tackling & reading the other teams offense is excellent. He will be a pro bowler one day & it should be in a Lions Jersey. His blitzing skills are fantastic & if you watch him against Kerryon Johnson in college, he owned him. White is the real deal & a great addition to our D
  11. JBC FIRED

    Quinn needs to get a blank check from Martha, call Bob Gase & get a deal done
  12. THE QUEST FOR THE DC/OC Beginneth!

    Rumors going around the internet that the Browns have interest in Jim Caldwell. I’m from Detroit & would not wish him on my worst enemy. He was a joke here & should not be allowed to head coach anywhere’s. Terrible clock management, never makes 1/2 time adjustments, poor at developing players. Players leaving the lions excelled with other teams. If he’s done anything right, it’s riding on others shirt tails & gets credit for their achievements! Your team is on the rise, don’t pick up any dead weight like Caldwell.
  13. Should the Lions trade Stafford?

    Intriguing thought.... Dangle Stafford Trade in front of Jerry Jones. I would be interested in seeing how much Jerry wants Stafford. He has made crazy trades when he has a chance to get a player he covets. He would totally want a shot at Stafford. Maybe worth a look see.
  14. Possible Lions may get New Ownership

    There’s been a very low keyed rumor the someone wants to buy the Lions. Tonight Channel 4 did a story on who & when. Dan Gilbert’s attorney confirmed that Dan is making all the moves to satisfy the NFL to purchase the Lions. He sold the Greektown Casino for 1 Billion, it’s not only for capital but to distance himself from the gambling industry. He now has enough capital to make an offer to the Fords that they can’t refuse. The lawyer said in the near future Gilbert will publicity announce his intentions to purchase the Lions. If this is true, is it a good thing or are the Lions jumping out of the pan, into the fire?
  15. Lions signed WR Bruce Ellington. waived Ameer Abdullah

    They also resigned Zenner
