5000 receiving yards and 38 touchdowns. He turns 32 in August, but the seasoned

The key for the Lions this year is really simple in my humble opinion. The team won 10 games and made the playoffs for the first time in 12 years in the 2011 season following 40 Touchdowns and 16 INTs from quarterback Matthew Stafford. But then fell to just 4 win in 2012 after Stafford [...]
