Epic Lions Fail
As we reported during the Elway-Manning tag-team press conference that refused to end, the Lions have signed linebacker Stephen Tulloch to a five-year deal.

Linebacker David Hawthorne likely didn’t get the memo.

Anwar Richardson of reports that Hawthorne was in a plane bound for Detroit when news broke of the Tulloch deal, unaware that the guy whom Hawthorne would have been replacing no longer needs to be replaced.

Hawthorne, who spent his first four seasons with the Seahawks, also has visited the Saints.

Lions officials currently are drawing straws to determine who’ll be the one to tell Hawthorne he came to town for no reason.

IDK if I'd call it a fail, Tulloch was the guy they wanted all along. The only reason they're drawing straws is most likely to determine who's going to have to hang around the office and wait for Hawthorne's plane to land. Besides, they could always sign Hawthorne & move Tulloch to the outside, or vice versa ... :grin:
