The Lions would be smart to say, you know what forget it and call Aaron Curry. I bet Seattle would still take Sanchez over Stafford and Stafford would fall to what 8-9, I would LOL.

The best move they could make is not drafting Stafford.

Draft Curry or Monroe!

the lions have said theyre gonna draft him whether a deal is signed or not (going back on their word, obama must be running their war room).

the deal is pretty much agreed upon, the lions just dont want to give him all his guaranteed money this year. being that the fords are playing with govt bailout mone, i cant quite blame them.

in another interresting twist, the rams spend a thousand bucks on a plane ticket and leak that it is for sanchez after the draft. i wonder what team will fall for that one.

6 years $70+ mil. There needs to be a rookie salary. Stafford gets over $10 mil. before even participating in minicamps while proven players who've started in the league get less money. Just like a NCAAF playoff system, there NEEDS to be a rookie salary cap.

If I was Stafford, I wouldn't try very hard. LOL Take my money and go home. Never have to worry about the pains that vets have to go through. Never have to worry about surgeries and such. Just play my way out of the league and laugh my way to the bank.

If the owners get their way in the CBA, they will have a cap on that to.
