The Lions, lying in wait for a new year...
Most of the big names have signed and the Detroit Lions, other than potentially a backup quarterback, are done making their big moves.
With many of the other NFL teams in similar situations as the third week of free agency gets underway, colleague Mike Sando graded out each NFL team thus far. And the Lions came in with a solid "B."
This was also before the James Ihedigbo signing, although that probably would not have moved the team up a full letter grade.
"A cap manager who followed the receiver market closely analyzed the (Golden) Tate contract and liked it from the Lions' perspective," Sando wrote. "He liked how the three-year cap average lined up with the overall average, noting that Detroit could easily escape the deal before the fourth season if the outlook changes."
Here's a look at the rest of the Lions news from around the Interwebs:
