NFL defenses know firsthand how hard it is to stop Barry Sanders. So, when the NFL legend decided to stop in Frankenmuth at the Fortress Golf Course for the 8th Annual Jason Richardson Golf Classic, he made it easy for NBC25 to catch up to him. All proceeds from Richardson’s golf classic will benefit the United Way of Saginaw County.

What the Lions could be planning when the bell rings for the start of free-agent signings (probably on July 28), why talks on a new labor contract are taking so long and why the wild thought that Mike Tirico might be the play-by-play voice of the Lions’ exhibition-season telecasts isn’t so wild . . .

Burress is among, what looks to be, several free agent wide receivers who will get a hard look from numerous NFL teams once the lockout ends.

A lot of buzz and speculation at this point has come from writers for the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, and most recently, the Detroit Lions.
