    Remember the story about the Army player who was drafted by the Lions, then had to leave and serve for two years? Well, he's back and he is getting that shot with the Lions. This is really good stuff.

    Too bad he's just a 1st Lt. If he was a Captain, the Texans would have signed him.

    Awesome, good to hear. I watch just about every Army game that gets on cable and remember watching the draft and pulling for this kid to get picked up.
