2020 Offseason (all the way up to the Draft)

What a waste.  Cut a 23 year old (who they shouldn't have drafted anyway) to sign a 30+ year old on the downside of his career.  

They're obsession with the running game in 2020 is ridiculous.  Joe Dahl and a rookie will be your starting guards.  You have a fringe backup player starting at right tackle.  And you just keep drafting and signing running backs and wonder why it won't work.

This team never ceases to underwhelm.

I gotta agree.

In a vacuum, I like the Peterson signing (he's still effective even at his advanced age) but when you draft a running back in the 2nd round a few years ago, another one in the 2nd and then the 5th this year, it seems like a waste when you're bringing in a guy who had the very least will share about half the load and cut that 5th rounder who you never gave a chance to make room for AP. Meanwhile the Vikings pick up a high end pass rusher for an offer the Lions could have easily beat to fill their biggest need.

Oh well, the move can't hurt but considering all the capital they've invested in the running game it's a bit of an odd signing even though they probably needed a vet to add to the mix anyway.

I heard Clowney signed a 1 year deal with the Titans so he could reunite with Vrabel.

He signed that deal because it’s the best offer he got. Could have had him weeks ago for $15 million.  Not sure I would have though.  He’s not exactly productive and likely to miss games.

Trubisky beat out Foles for the starting job. Poor Bears fans.  After Trubisky smokes the Lions in week 1 it will look like the right decision and it will take weeks to correct the mistake.

The #Lions are placing RB Bo Scarbrough on Injured Reserve, source said. He missed several days of camp nursing an injury. With this year’s rules, that just means he’ll miss a minimum of three weeks. Detroit recently signed Adrian Peterson and he could contribute quickly.
