RESTORE THE ROAR
A Lions fan named Chris Pruett is collecting signatures in an attempt to convince the team ”to let fans vote live via internet to make the draft picks for the Lions”.
Offensive tackle Corey Hilliard, who was inactive for every game last season, has been re-signed by the Detroit Lions to a two-year contract extension.
Hilliard, 27, was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on March 12.
He played in all 16 games in both 2010 and 2011 with the Lions, mostly on special teams.
The Lions' offensive line is in transition. Right guard Stephen...
NFL.com's Albert Breer reported Wednesday that a team source says the Detroit Lions have begun talks with quarterback Matthew Stafford on a contract extension. At this point, it's nothing more than talk, rather than serious negotiations, but the Lions have said all along that they wanted to get a new deal done with the 25-year-old Stafford.
A sneaky, early round pick in my Fantasy Football league in 2011 was the Detroit Lions defense/special teams. Not much changed on the line for 2012, and their D/ST was Fantasy GOLD the season before…so I picked them up again. Thankfully, I’m a complete nut and either manage or am a part of at least three Fantasy leagues every year. And I had the smarts and the homerism to pick...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Alright, so Calvin Johnson is a freak of nature, that much should be clear to everyone and their dog by now. The Man, we’ll refer to him by that for now, hauled in 122 balls for 1964 yards. Any time the amount of yards you hauled in almost...
The New England Patriots recently extended quarterback Tom Brady to help their salary cap number, and the Detroit Lions are hoping to
complete a similar move with Matthew Stafford. The Lions have begun talks with
Stafford on a contract extension, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com.
Talks are still in the preliminary stage, as nothing is
pressing at this point, according to Breer...
Free agency always affects NFL Draft decisions, but perhaps never more so for the Detroit Lions than this year.
The Lions have numerous holes to fill coming off a 4-12 season, but there could be even bigger ones at certain spots if some key unrestricted free agents don't come back.
One piece of this puzzle in free agency can change what is the best direction to take in the...
The Detroit Lions endured a painful season, one wrecked by injuries to the receiving corps and secondary, the lack of push in the interior running game, extremely inopportune turnovers and the propensity of the defense and special teams to give up huge scoring plays. As they entered this off season, with a sliver of cap space, and a slew of free agents, it would appear that the...
With the NFL Scouting Combine at it’s end this year, what has the Lions’ front office learned? In short, they’re going to have a tough decision to make with the 5th overall pick. This year’s Draft doesn’t feature the stand out skill position players but what it does feature is a deep selection of positions the Lions find themselves in need of, positions like defensive end...
Tyrann Mathieu, aka The Honey Badger, thinks he could beat Detroit Lions wideout Calvin 'Megatron' Johnson at more than just a battle of nicknames.
NFL teams are permitted to start signing free agents in exactly two weeks (March 12) and until then, we’ll be hearing plenty of half-truths regarding teams’ interest in players.
Word came out Tuesday that the Lions indeed have “real” interest in free agent running back Reggie Bush, the soon-to-be former Dolphins running back. Dave Birkett, the Lions’ beat writer for the...
Reggie Bush will have more than a few suitors. When given the opportunity he was effective as a between the tackles running back.
The Lions needs someone who can carry the ball consistently, they can’t win with Matthew Stafford throwing the ball 700+ times a season.
According the Detroit Free Press, they Lions will give Bush a hard look when he hits the market.
