A proud franchise with a crazed fan base has had some bad, bad drafts and many of them involve Matt Millen. The team has also added some incredible individual talents. Lets look at the best picks in the history of the Detroit Lions since 1980!
BEST OF MAXIM
The Detroit Lions welcomed in four more 2013 NFL Draft prospects on Tuesday—Central Florida RB Latavius Murray, Clemson SS Jonathan Meeks, Mississippi State CB Darius Slay and arguably the top 4-3 DE/3-4 OLB in Dion Jordan out of Oregon—per Tim Twentyman of the team’s official website. Slay is now the fourth cornerback, Murray is the third running back, Meeks is the second...
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, it’s only a matter of time before the Lions and quarterback Mathew Stafford agree on a long-term extension. It’s just a matter of time before the sides agree on a long-term deal that will keep Stafford in Detroit for years to come at a price that probably tops $100 million. Both sides want it to happen, both sides need it...
The Detroit Lions have re-signed running back Joique Bell, running back Shaun Chapas, wide receiver Kris Durham, offensive tackle Jason Fox, defensive back Ricardo Silva, wide receiver Brian Robiskie and defensive end Willie Young.
The team announced the moves Monday but did not disclose contract terms.
Bell was Detroit's second-leading rusher last season behind Mikel Leshoure...
Monday the Detroit Lions came to terms with free agent offensive tackle Jason Fox on a one-year deal. Injuries have limited him to just five appearances in three years. If he can remain healthy though, he would become a major boost to the offensive line, most likely at the right tackle position.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Human nature these days is to try to make as much money as possible.
But theres a problem with that approach in the NFLs salary-cap era. If you want to win championships, you need talent around you. You cant be too selfish and make so much that theres not enough to go around.
Thats the issue quarterback Matthew Stafford faces during negotiations for a contract...

When we reported the news yesterday that the Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford were close to a contract extension, you know it would be a monster deal. With the likes of $100 million being passed out to quarterbacks like Tony Romo, common sense would tell you that Stafford would command a deal at least [...]

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young tweeted an apology late Monday night directed towards Lions fans but deleted it afterwards. Then he added a tweet that said “Thank Jesus Amen,” but deleted that quickly too. He currently doesn’t have any tweets and is only following six people, one of which is Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
Perhaps it’s time...
The might be the off-season of $100 million contracts. Joe Flacco and Tony Romo are finished. Aaron Rodgers is close to finishing his deal and we can add one name to that list.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Lions and star quarterback Matthew Stafford on working on a long term deal will probably put him up there with Romo and Flacco.
The Lions, who have spent the...
My thinking about Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is which quarterback are you? Are you the same young quarterback who threw for over 5,000 yards and 41 TD’s with a 97.2 quarterback rating in 2011? Or are you the quarterback that regressed in 2012, that threw for only 20 TD’s with a 79.8 rating? I’m [...]
Titus Young momentarily came to his senses late Monday night--he apologized to fans of his former team, the Detroit Lions.
Sounds reasonable, right? Maybe there is hope for this kid. He is only 23 after all. Youngsters are going to make mistakes. The important thing is that they learn from them, apologize if possible, and then move on.
Could it be that Titus has learned...
