  5. Lions have added Reggie Ragland (LB) last with the Chiefs, Elijah Lee (LB) last with the 49ers, Geronimo Allison (WR) last with the Packers & Geremy Davis (WR) last with the Chargers all on one year deals.
  6. Minor Lions stuff: Sam Martin (P) has joined Denver on a three year $7.05 million deal. Oday Aboushi (G) has re-signed on a one year deal. Peeved to lose Sam Martin as he's been a very good punter averaging 46 yards with a long of 72. Lions have two punters still on the books in the nomadic Matt Wilie & rookie Jack Fox (Rice University). Possible options in FA market are Matt Bosher of the Falcons & last seasons punt yard leader Lac Edwards of the Jets. Draft options include Joseph Charlton (South Carolina), Braden Mann (Texas A&M) & Arryn Siposs (Auburn).
  7. Lions have added CB Tony McRae last with the Bengals on one year deal worth $1.5 million. Miles Killebrew (DB) has re-signed on a one year deal Ex-Lion Graham Glasgow (C) is Denver bound as per reports on a four year deal worth $44 million. Jeff Driskel (QB) also following in the same direction on $5 million two year deal. Logan Thomas (TE) bound for the Skins along with J.D. McKissic (RB), latter on a two year deal. A'Shawn Robinson (DT) has joined Rams on a $17 millon two year deal.
  8. Lions add Safety Jayron Kearse last with the Vikings. One year deal worth $2.75 millon most likely primarily as a backup/special teamer as Tracy Walker & Duron Harman are ahead of Kerase in the depth chart.
  9. Detroit Lions stuff: Out Kyle Sloter (QB - cut) AJ Howard (CB -cut ) Devon Kennard (OLB - cut & has since joined the Cardinals) Darius Slay (CB - traded to Eagles for 3rd & 5th picks in 2020 draft) Declared FA's Oday Aboushi (G) Tavon Wilson (DB) Darius Kilgo (NT) Rashaan Melvin (CB) JD MCKissic (RB) Graham Glasgow (C) Sam Martin (P) Miles Killebrew (DB) Mike Daniels (DE) Logan Thomas (TE) Jermaine Kearse (WR) A'Shawn Robinson (DT) Jamie Mader (DT) Kenny Wiggins (G ) In Jamie Collins (OLB - 3 year deal $30 million) Danny Shelton (DT - 3 year deal $8 million) Nick Williams (DT - 2 year deal $10 million) Halapoulivaati Vaitai (T - 3 year deal $50 million) Chase Daniel (QB - 3 year deal $13.5 million) Desmond Trufant (CB - two year deal $21 million) Biggest story thus far is Slay being traded to the Eagles for a three year deal worth $50 million with 3rd & 5th round picks in this years draft going the other way. Sore yin for the Lions to lose who most would consider to be their best player who has been a pro bowler the three past seasons. Chase Daniel is a rather curious one & suggests the Lions are opting for experience at backup QB rather than sticking with Blough or going for another younger QB either in the draft or FA. Not a fan of the move given Daniel's rather underwhelming numbers . One name I'd like to have seen the Lions opt for is PJ Walker of the Houston Roughnecks who was the standout player in what was played of the XFL season.
  10. Lions stuff so far: Dee Virgin (DB) has re-signed on a one year deal as an exclusive FA through 2020 Don Muhlenbach (LS) has re-signed on one year deal through 2020 Rick Wagner (T) has been cut. Bound for the Packers as per reports. Jamie Collins (LB) last with the Pats on a three year deal worth $30 million with $18 million guaranteed.
  11. Was wondering if TJ et al had been consulted yet so that answers one of many questions. Be very interesting to see how the SJFA respond when proposals are tabled to them.
  12. If I'm reading & interpreting things correctly WOS clubs will only play in the Junior Cup instead of both the Junior Cup & South Challenge Cup. If the junior cup is to stick around I'd rather be playing in both for sake of integration & with all due respect to whats left of the east juniors I'd rather have the chance to play Bonnyrigg, Lithgae & Bo'ness rather than Whitburn, Bathgate & Pumpherston. Of course I could be mis-understanding & clubs will play in both.
  13. One interesting point is with the Junior Cup being relegated to a county cup of sorts then surely the Scottish Cup place it offers currently has to come into question.
  14. Hibs & Hearts both are. In the 90s like other historical county competitions have done it switched to youth level with both teams playing an annual match that's been used as a fundraiser for the EOSFA. Not been played since 15-16 however.
  15. If I'm reading into this correctly the west league plan as part of a comprimise would be adminstered sans the sjfa as the LL/EOS have had justified issue with difference in procedure ie fines etc.
