the lions just gave LT Jeff Backus a 6-year deal in july. they just traded for RT George Foster and RB Tatum Bell. it seems the general thought that they are 100% going after Joe Thomas may not be so... however, we do know of matt millen's history with going heavy on one position. to me, Joe Thomas, Adrian Peterson and even Calvin Johnson are all big possibilities here. what about quarterback? the team has publicly spoken out against drafting any QB's. smokescreen? who knows...they still seem to be stinging over the harrington fiasco. and they love josh mccown. this trade through a wrench into the whole thing. methinks they look to trade down.
