  • Duckett signs with Detroit!!!

    DUCKETT TO DETROIT

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that running back T.J. Duckett has agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions.

    Duckett will sign a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Lions.

    The maneuver gives the Lions three starting-caliber tailbacks -- Duckett, Tatum Bell, and Kevin Jones. We've previously heard that Bell, who was acquired recently from the Broncos as part of the Dre' Bly trade, is a candidate to be traded again.

    Duckett did the deal with Detroit after visiting the Seahawks.
    Yes, I KNOW it's from PFT, but it was "reported from Adam Schefter of NFL Network".

    (Update: It's official. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2793638.)

    I'm glad this happened.

    (Side note: they also re-signed Aveion Cason... what the HELL will the roster look like this year?!)

        Goodbye Bryson and Calhoun . . . (one of you may go on IR though).

          Hopefully it's Calhoun.

          Does this rule the Chris Brown signing out? God I hope so.

            Yes, I think it's safe to rule out Brown. And Adrian Peterson.

            It's a good signing. 1 year for 1.5 mil is pretty nice (if this is in fact true)

                I like Duckett a lot just couldn't find a spot behind Portis, Betts, and Rock but he is a still a solid player but he really needs to loose weight. From what he showed on the skins he doesn't have the explosion to break the run, he is rather slow, runs rather upright and isn't really good in the redzone, but if he could be rejuvenated in Detroit so I am pulling for him, but IMO he isn't starting material anymore.

                  Detroit will be a good fit for him then. We're looking for that 3rd and 2 back... the short-yard specialist. We've got the speed... now we've got the power.

                  Lets hope Marinelli works him into top shape.

                      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                          I like the fact that it's a one-year deal. Guys always seem to play better when it's a contract year. I'm gonnna say Bryson and Calhoun both start on the PUP list and go IR at week 9 or whatever the rule is. I'd like a mulligan on the Calhoun pick.

                            i would think this means that calhoun and jones' rehabs arent going as good as they should be.

                            i think this is a great signing for you guys though, thunder and lightning with bell and duckett.

                              Agree completely.

                              I, to be honest, think it's an upgrade over just KJones.
