    In a surprise move, the Lions hire a new coach right before the playoffs?! Unheard of, but the Sandusky-like rumors were too much for the Ford family to tolerate.

    Broyles has broken ribs and has been put on the IR list. He would have been back for the playoffs but the roster move allows the Lions to shore up their defense by picking up Terrance Newman for the playoffs.

    More wildcard roster shuffling. Lions pick up Karl Klug DT for the playoffs, with hopes of signing him to an extended contract when the offseason hits. If not, all the more cap room for my rookies and new FA's.

    Lions tagged CB Houston. Thought about tagging Avril but I figured I would be better off letting some other team take that huge salary hit.

    Charles Woodson is heading to Michigan!

    In the biggest trade of the 2013 season, the Green Bay Packers send former Heisman trophy winner and future HOF'er to the Detroit Lions for a 2014 4th rd pick. #21 will retire in the state where it all began...

    To clear cap space for the Woodson move, Lions released LT Jeff Backus, TE Anthony Fasano, SS Melvin Bullitt, MLB Jones. WR Gettis and WR Gates, K Josh Brown.

    I don't think I have Moore on my roster anymore. I might have cut him and signed a rookie.

    With my season over, a quick look at my team salary summary had me -$4.19 mil in cap. Unfortunately, the Lions have to release SS Charles Woodson in the final year of his contract. I really wanted him to retire a Detroit Lion, but the $10 million salary was killing me.

    And with Stafford and Suh in the final year of their contract, Lions management no choice. :(

    Some tough decisions face the Ford family in the off-season.

    Detroit Lions are looking to acquire 2 additional picks in this year's draft for picks in next year's.

    Any rounds will do, but would love to get a 2nd and a 3rd round for my next year's 1st. Or whatever we can work out.

    If you fill all your needs in free agency or can't make the draft and don't want some dumb CPU chosen players, PM me.

    Lions release veteran WR Mike Williams today. Tough decision, losing this 6'5" target in the red zone. But a new youth movement, speed and his large contract were a bit much for the Lions organization.

    We wish him well.

    Lions have a couple nice players gathering dust on the bench.

    Send offers to the front office via PM. Primarily looking for picks, but willing to look at any offers:

    Lions release QB Graham
    Sign WR Brandon Tate

    Claim LB Jordan off waivers

    Both rookie WRs Johnson and Walden out 3 and 4 weeks. Sigh...

    So, I don't know if it's the CPU doing it or the coaches, but I've been getting a few offers (Cowboys, Redskins and 49ers) for my two RGs. Anyway, let's work out a deal. I would prefer a pick in this year's draft.

    RG Peterman 32 yrs old 88 OVR 87 RBK 91 PBK 84 IBL 94 STR
    RG Brisiel 31 yrs old 87 OVR 88 RBK 87 PBK 87 IBL 98 STR

    No one? Come on, I know two of you have sent me offers. If I can get a 3rd I will probably pull the trigger.
