Scanning the Savanna

Cliff Avril has no immediate plans to sign the one-year tender offer the Detroit Lions made him this week, and if the third-year defensive end has his way, he won’t sign a one-year deal at all.

The Detroit Lions gave center Dylan Gandy an original round restricted free agent tender, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

I think it’s possible that Amukamara drops to Detroit’s pick at No. 13. The reason is because of two spots that always get taken higher than they should because of positional value – defensive linemen and quarterbacks.
Locking out the players, the administrators, the secretaries, the concession workers, the janitors, the scouts, the trainers, the equipment managers, the parking lot attendees, the beat writers, and all of the thousands upon thousands of other people across the nation who rely on the NFL for their income? It’s not the best thing for the National Football League—in fact, it’s the only thing that could truly derail the NFL’s incredible success.
