Strange Detroit Signing

Lions | Bradford signed to four-year deal
Mon, 13 Mar 2006 12:22:21 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Detroit Lions have signed free agent WR Corey Bradford (Texans) to a four-year, $7.4 million contract that includes a $2 million signing bonus.
Why does Detroit spend decent money on another under-achieving WR? I wonder if they are going to try and deal one that they have?

i would think Rogers would head the list of players that won't be wearing a Lions uniform next season.

I was thinking the same thing. Given Horn's age, I'd be willing to see take a flyer on Rogers and see if Payton can get some production out of him. He shouldn't be too expensive and has huge upside.

Not too keen on signing guys who are so brittle or so interested in dope, but he might be a bargain. Cris Carter had to deal with dope before he became such an elite talent.

Connell's departure from Washington was because of the problems he had with the coaching staff. He didn't turn into a pick-pocket until he signed with the Saints

Rogers would actually have had to be on the field in order to have a falling out with the coaching staff :P

We need to re-sign Az-Hakim first. He's still a good #3 reciever that can, in emergencies, take punt/kick-offs. But Rogers might be an OK replacement, still only a #2-3 WR. Stallworth needs to take that next step he showed flashes of last season and become our #1. Horn then becomes #2, with Az-Hakim/Rogers or Henderson fighting for #3.

Eric Moulds anyone??? I also hear Keyshawn may become available but I'd prefer we stay clear of him.
