The Lions have been one of the more active teams out there since free agent signing started on the 5th last week. They signed DE Kyle Vandenboche immediately after the clock struck midnight, then added Corey Williams at DT, and then overpaid WR NAte Burleson by a substantial amount.
This week they also made another trade that sent their 6th rounder to Atlanta. They also swapped 5th rounders in the same deal that brings CB Chris Houston to Detroit. Just another basic move that has little downside. Well...little as in cost for getting him with the Best Buy, but probably little upside either as he isn't exactly a stud. Still he has started 37 games, and getting him for pretty much nothing is more than acceptable.
