Calvin Johnson's contract effects Drew's contract about as much as my salary effects yours.

Funny, they were just discussing how his contract affects Drew's negotiations on NFL network, AND WWL.

Then I suppose you are right, since WWL and NFL Network are correct about everything and never use weak excuses to bring up popular stories.

Look into the owners eyes and ask him how happy he is about writing that check.
Well, knowing what I know about the Fords, they wouldn't have written it were they not completely happy with it. They are shrewd investors. This is a huge sign to the fans and the NFL ...

... I can't believe it, I never thought I would see the day ... the Lions are going to make a serious run at a SuperBowl ... <sniff> ...

Ohh, and yet another one to add to the mix...

@JeffDuncanTP Brees reportedly asking for $23M per year in first three years. Saints reportedly have offered $18M. CJ deal gives Brees camp more leverage.
