Judd Zulgad, of the Star Tribune, reports the Detroit Lions could be a potential destination if the New England Patriots decide to trade QB Matt Cassel, according to the NFL Network's Adam Schefter.
Obviously this is complete BS, and filler news. Sounds like it is just some guy theorizing what could happen with Cassel after finishing his last bottle from his wine of the month club, and considering that the Lions are thought to be targeting Georgia QB Matt Stafford at #1 overall int he draft they are just throwing mud on the wall to see if it sticks.
Odds of this are extremely low I would guess. Remember that earlier this year the Patriots were even talking about Franchising Cassel to keep him around for another year just in case Tome Brady wasn't ready for next season.
Any number of things can be said about this. Next Scott Mitchell, saves us drafting a QB, et. etc. When it all is sorted out this is still the Lions and no matter what they do will end up being a mistake ;).
