Of course I go and write a post about the relative quiet surrounding the Lions activities regarding free agent cornerbacks only to have ESPN’s John Clayton wrap up his first day of tweeting with the following:
ready to wrap up the first day of tweeting. I think the Lions do have a great chance at getting J. Joseph, but the Bengals are still in hunt
There is some uncertainty whether or not the Lions can afford to sign Joseph and Tulloch in addition to the deal they just struck with Justin Durant. Could we see a case of “first one to agree gets the spot”? That doesn’t sound like the kind of game the Lions would play but these are uncharted waters for the Lions and the rest of the NFL.
Nothing becomes official until Friday afternoon so expect another day and a half of ups and downs. Enjoy the ride!
