Despite the fact that running back Jahvid Best has officially retired from the NFL, he may not rule out a comeback down the road, according to the National Football Post.
Other than to thank the Detroit Lions, and to note that he will “always be” a Lion, tailback Jahvid Best, released by Detroit this week after a concussion-ravaged three-year career, has remained quiet about his plans. Ditto his camp. There is a solid chance Best, who played in only 22 games in his career, will simply retire. But the suspicion in some quarters is that Best, who is only 24 years old, will explore plenty of options and continue to meet with concussion specialists, in an attempt to yet resurrect his career. Despite the likelihood he will never play again, it might still take awhile for that reality to sink in. A first-round pick in 2010 (30th overall), Best hasn’t played in a game since October 2011, and the former University of California standout still possesses residual effects from the concussions ...

Three years ago the Detroit Lions traded up for the sparkplug they had been lacking since Barry Sanders. California Golden Bear Jahvid Best dropped to pick 30 in the 2010 NFL draft because of durability concerns. Concussions had plagued the tiny track star in his collegiate career, but his skill was salivating enough for the Lions to take a chance.

With training camp opening in just a couple of weeks, the Detroit Lions have a glaring opening in their secondary. This season the Lions will be feeling the pressure from fans to make a playoff run, but that won’t happen if they can’t stop teams on the defensive side of the ball.Now that the NFL has solidified the movement to a passing league, the Lions secondary will be facing...
The Lions could drive for show, but they couldn't putt for dough in 2012. They ranked No. 3 in total offense by racking up 408.8 yards per game, including No. 2 in passing (307.9).
Impressive, right? Not necessarily.
It didn't get them far enough much of the time. They ranked just 17th in scoring with a 23.3-point average.
Too many of those yards were the result...

The NFL has become a passing league. It is no wonder that quarterbacks are paid big money, given that they not only supply the ammunition but also take the blows; in some cases, you might as well put a target on them.
The latest signal caller to earn some big money via a contract extension is Detroit Lions on-field general, Matt Stafford. His new payday is worth $41.5 million in...
To get a better idea of what the Titans are getting, I went back and watched a couple games of defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill, formerly of the Detroit Lions.
With Hill, the first question was which games to watch. He started the season as the Lions' fourth defensive tackle, behind Ndamukong Suh, Corey Williams, and Nick Fairley. That's where he was when the Lions faced...
