Its good news he made it out of Buffalo with out signing a contract. Suppose to visit Detroit today. Lock him up. He'll be motivated to beat Green Bay.
The Green Bay revenge factor might be the clincher. If Barnett is strictly about the money then the Bills have a chance. As long as there are others factors Barnett considers important and the Lions make a fair offer then he should sign for Detroit.
EDIT: BREAKING NEWS
Lions signed MLB Stephen Tulloch.
The signing comes as somewhat of a surprise after the Lions inked Justin Durant on Thursday, but Tulloch will slide in immediately as Detroit's middle linebacker. He's being reuinted with Jim Schwartz, who was his defensive coordinator for his first three years in the league. Tulloch's arrival is bad news for DeAndre Levy, who should now be shifted to the outside. Financial details of Tulloch's detail are not yet available, but he reportedly turned down an offer with a $10 million guarantee earlier in the week.
I'd probably just keep an eye out for some good cheap oline insurance to fall into our lap.
Fox is finally healthy and should be improved, and Hillard filled in pretty well last year. With that being said, having Cherilus and Backus coming of injuries is scary. Donald Thomas, Gerberry, and Gandy don't exactly inspire confidence in me either.
I'd be tempted to go with a Charlie Johnson type who can play guard and spot tackle, but he's too finesse for my taste.
