After being relieved of his duties last month, it appears former Detroit Lions president Matt Millen is getting overlooked on pay day.

NFL sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that the Lions haven't paid Millen, who is still owed $6 to $10 million under his contract which ran until 2010, since he was fired Sept. 24.

According to those sources, the Lions are trying to get Millen to settle for an amount less than what he is owed. Millen currently has no plan to file a grievance against the Lions as both sides are exploring a settlement.


Millen won Super Bowls as a linebacker and was an acclaimed TV analyst, but had no front-office experience when he was hired in Detroit. Millen's teams won a league-low 31 games from the time he took over the Lions in 2001.

The Lions owe Millen $6 to $10 million dollars, but he (despite rumors to the contrary) is a very astute businessman. Sources in Detroit are reporting that Millen has almost finalized a settlement agreement where he will pay the Lions only $4 million dollars

I lol'ed at the comment left

I think he should pay the lions 6-10 million dollars. Not the other way around.

Astute businessman indeed. Instead of getting the 6 million he is owed, he decided to settle for only paying them 4 million.
The source probably screwed up the words but it made me laugh
