Houston
Delmas
Levy
Durant
C. Williams
SLH

All UFA.

Houston will hopefully sign for a moderate contract with his injury problems limiting his market value. Delmas . . . we might as well cut bait with him, frankly, since he can never seem to stay healthy for more than 5 games at a time. Levy should be back, Durant too, Williams might get left out because of depth at DT, and Hill shouldn't be a problem to keep.

Avril is also a free agent, and KVB is probably done after this year given his age and general ineffectiveness this season. I have a feeling Avril will get a huge contract even though he's not having a great year.

tough loss, good luck next week.


imo, the lions aren't far off... outsider opinion? schwartz is the problem. he's WAY overconfident. and cocky. everyone hates him, even the players.... the lions may compete or play spoiler this season yet... they need 1 more WR... anyone who can draw some attention. maybe young can be that guy, but so far, don't look like it... defense is pretty good i think, D line really coming around. idk about ur CB's, but once you work on the secondary, lions will probably be perennial contenders, at least for a good stretch.


every team goes through these super droughts. packers sucked basically all the mid 70's- mid 90's. 20 years of sucking. lions going through it now. it makes it rounds to every team.

Even Lions players? I haven't heard anything about that.

We do need 1 WR but I think Broyles/Young are the solution and need to see them progress.

We have sucked for 50 years so...

well the players hating the coach is just speculation on my part... because of the body language, and effort....


eh, barry sanders had the lions in the playoffs, weren't too bad in that era.

I assume by cut you mean not re-sign instead of signing them just to cut them. Wink

Why not re-sign Durant? I think he has done a solid job with us and would be affordable.

I would like to bring back Delmas for one year. Or two years if its incentive based.
