Post Ocho Cinco a Lion?
I would love to get Nate Burelson off the books with that inflated contract. Seeing that Ocho was working out with Megatron and Stafford last year during the summer, would it be so bad to sign him to a 1 year, incentive driven contract and dump Nate? I think Chad would go for it and he should be pretty fresh considering his none contact season last year. Thoughts??

Can we just go forward with the assumption that Nate is going to be on the team this year?

Do we REALLY want to trade SELFLESSNESS for SELFISHNESS? That's like getting cured of cancer, only to want it back. Chad and Terrell are me-itis type of guys that do more to harm a team than benefit.

Meanwhile: Nate has been UBER-supportive of the WR core, and really gone out of his way to help the younger guys. Why in the world would we want to dump him for this?

I wonder if we fans are starting to suffer from concussions from the hits the football players are taking, or if it was too many years as a Lions fan doing this: ](*,)

Brilliant, another thread about cutting Burleson. I have a feeling I know where this is headed.

I once said that if we signed TO I'd burn all my Lions gear and become a Vikings fan.

he didn't have all that drama last year with NE , and I know we are not NE , but I honestly feel that if he did come here he wouldnt be a distraction this late in his career and he would be a balancing factor. With that said , no , we dont need him . Best of luck to him though .

All I remember of Ocho Cinco last year is his lack of ability to learn a playbook. Why would you want him here? If he can't make the field with NE's WRs how would he improve the Lions?
