And while teams like the Panthers sign a SMALL ARMY of undrafted rookies (eighteen) Detroit signs ONE DT.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Matt Stafford is eating steak at the Ford household and laughing it up with Mayhew and Lewand while he picks out the paint and interior colors for his new Explorer. All 3 of the stoges fight for the honor of whipping WCF's butt when he needs his diaper changed.

P.S. I just counted 11 OT and 6 OG. Maybe we should have tried to protect our overpaid investment too....

Damn - we do suck at signing UDFA's. I thought for sure we would go after Beckwith, Ellerbe and Boone.

List is getting bigger as of 10:30am eastern:

DT John Gill (Northwestern)
LB Andrew Downey (Maine)
C Dan Gerberry (Ball State)
PK Swayze Walters (UAB)
DL DJ Boldin (Wake Forest)


Also take into consideration, people could refuse to come here, and they have a choice of what team to come too. If they're getting alot of calls, they might not want to come to the Lions. I think we have to show some improvement and you'll see us get some of the more premium UDFA's in the upcoming years.

Boone had been hanging out in Cali (where he had a drunken incident and a tazzer) He probably decided he deserved a bigger life and wanted to stay out here instead of the Midwest so he signed with the 49ers.

So what you're saying is that his parole officer wouldn't let him leave the West Coast? :lol:

I believe it is similar to the draft. They didn't want to bring in bodies just to have bodies. They didn't want to bring in guys they didn't like just to bring them in. They are trying to bring in guys who they like so they can spend more time with fewer players making them better. The lions have another problem with UDFA. UDFA do not have to come here. The only reason they would is becuase our roster is weak and they have a better shot.

I would have liked to see Elerbe or Beckwith. But NO! Thats so frustrating. Apparently Schwartz likes what's on the roster.

I'm sure if he could replace most of the roster with guys he likes he would try. But my guess is that he understand we have only so many draft picks and not everyone is jumping to get to Detroit...

Chase Daniels went undrafted too. I was surprised by this.
