      That doesn't mean much in my opinion. If the deal is close, they're still going to deny it until Stafford is officially signed. We'll see though...

              Stafford is a three year starter, that's more than most senior QB's have coming out.

              And taking stafford now would actually make taking trench players the next few years at least make sense, since there's actually an asset to protect back there.

              QB or line is chicken and egg, does the QB play well because of the great line or does the line look great because the QB plays well?

              You don't like him as a prospect, well I can't help you there.

                    Oh btw if this is true, I wanted this since last draft. Check the first post in the draft discussion. HAHA.

                      I'm listening to 97.1 the Ticket and they are saying Curry has a deal set to go just in case the Lions cant land Stafford. The Lions will just use this as a bargaining chip though, so it looks likes Stafford is a lock.

                        I think these reports may not be credible, but the contract numbers (6 years, 80 million dolars, 40 million guaranteed) are very much what we should expect.

                          I think we can get Stafford for a little less, considering Curry has already agreed to a contract. I just hope the Lions don't low ball Stafford too badly and end up getting stuck with Curry.

                            I just saw Casserly do the math on Russel's contract, 20% annual increase would mean Stafford gets 45 million. 40 million would be going from Ryans contract.

                              "Stuck" with Curry??? Really?? Come on, give respect where respect is due fella.
                              He's only the consensus #1 overall prospect in this entire draft ...
                              the #1 rated defensive player ...
                              thus the #1 LB, any position ...
                              That, to me at least, is FAR from being stuck with a player.

                              I understand you love Matt Stafford but AC is the best player at the highest position of need on the worst defense in NFL history. That ALWAYS makes sense no matter what number the pick. There are reports that Seattle & San Francisco do not think Stafford is even the #1 QB in this draft (Sanchez) and I've read NY Jets have Freeman in their sights as their #1 ...
