    but apparently we've signed a Tight End. From John Clayton and the Worldwide Leader-

    "The Detroit Lions, shifting from a Mike Martz passing offense to a run-oriented offense, reached a four-year, $10 million agreement with Buffalo Bills tight end Michael Gaines.

    Included in the deal is $3 million in guarantees. Gaines started his career as a blocking tight end in Carolina and ended up going to Buffalo, where he developed some of his receiving skills last season.

    The Lions hope he can be a 40-catch tight end, but they are counting on him to improve their run blocking.

    -- John Clayton, ESPN.com "

    Gaines statline from last year: REC 25 | YDS 215 | TD 2

    He was cut from Carolina and the Bills signed him during the season. I'm not quite sure what he's done to warrant $10 million over 4 years. Ask Bills fans about him and most didn't seem to think he was very good. Also Buffalo really needs another TE and they didn't resign him, so that should be a red flag right there.

      Dan Campbell, Casey Fitzsimmons, Sean Mchugh, Michael Gaines. Seems like a lot of money for a group of mediocrity.

        sure does... But who knows, maybe he'll be decent.

          congrats, Lions Fans. Enjoy him I'm glad he went nowhere in the division let alone anyone in the AFC. I loved Gaines he was a personal favorite, and I now sulk alone
