Oh glorious Free Agent opening Day. Earlier today I was on Twitter for about 2 hours refreshing my follows every 10 seconds to see what NFL FA business was going down. From a Lions perspective it looked bleak with most of our players being signed by someone else. Gosder Cherilus was the first bigger name to leave for Indy. Rumors also looked like Avril was headed there too. Delmas was talking to the Rams. Basically we were losing starters and keeping all our backups like Jason Fox, Hilliard, etc. and letting everyone else go because we can't afford them. After doing nothing last year in the off season, Mayhew looks to be right on track to keep his record rolling of not improving the team. IT's very close to time for him to find mounts direct and ride out of town.
The only good news are the upcoming visits of Reggie Bush and safety Glover Quin tomorrow as well as a possible new 3 year deal with Chris Houston. A guy that is our only semi-good defensive back.
Other news suggests that our 1st round OT from last year, Reiff may be getting moved to right guard as well.
