    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.

        Either Chris Carr or Josh Wilson-Depends on who resigns in Baltimore
        Eric Wright- Still has the talent to become something
        Richard Marshall
        Carlos Rogers

        LB

        Stephen Nicholas- I want this guy on our team. Top Priority.
        Stephen Tulloch-If we miss on Nicholas then we're paying big $ and moving Levy
        Manny Lawson
        Rocky McIntosh
        James Anderson
        Justin Durant

        Others
        Harvey Dahl or Justin Blalock Guards from Atlanta
        Jason Babin DE Tennessee
        Good call Prowler. Free agency has been a success. Another CB and an OL still to come hopefully.

        • Good job by Mayhew to get Tulloch on a one year deal.

                    • Soooo ....

                      DE Cliff Avril / Willie Young
                      DT Ndomukong Suh / Nick Fairley / Andre Fluellen
                      DT Corey Williams / Sammie Lee Hill
                      DE Kyle Vanden Boesch / Lawrence Jackson

                      OLB Justin Durant / Ashlee Palmer
                      MLB Stephen Tulloch
                      OLB Deandre Levy / Zack Follett / Doug Hogue

                      CB Chris Houston / Aaron Berry / Brandon McDonald
                      S Louis Delmas / John Wendling
                      S Amari Spievey / Erik Coleman / Maurice Leggett
                      CB Eric Wright / Alphonso Smith / Nathan Vasher


                      Defensive wish list:
                      - Try and get DE Turk McBride back for cheap.
                      - Find another MLB if you're committed to moving Levy outside
                      - Sign another CB for cheap and upgrade over McDonald/Vasher

                      • I'd probably just keep an eye out for some good cheap oline insurance to fall into our lap.

                        Backus/Sims/Raiola/Peterman/Cherilus

                        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.

                        • I get the impression Mayhew will still find ways to add upgrades. There's a lot of players left out there and more will be cut as the rosters narrow to 53.

                          Obviously OLine depth, especially on the interior is critical.

                          • Turk McBride reportedly signed with the Saints.
