Lions not in on Haynesworth

Those rumors about the Lions pursuing defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth are exactly that – rumors. I was told earlier tonight that the Lions are not one of the teams in the running to sign Haynesworth, the top free agent available and someone with an obvious connection to new coach Jim Schwartz.

There are two other names floating around. ESPN reported that the Lions are interested in guard Derrick Dockery, who was released by the Bills on Thursday. Dockery likely would start at left guard. The Redskins, who Dockery played for from 2003-2006, also are exploring re-signing Dockery, the Washington Post reported.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Lions are “aggressively pursuing” Steelers receiver Nate Washington, who may visit Detroit as soon as Saturday. The Vikings, Buccaneers and Titans also are interested in Washington, various outlets have reported. The Lions need a No. 2 receiver to pair opposite Calvin Johnson.

not only is he a strong safety but he is a lousy one at that

he can hit someone hard but nothing else...hmm reminds me of a certain middle LB coming out of USC this year that everyone wants

apparently if you can hit someone hard you are amazing

Sure, we will trade Dallas Jon Kitna for Roy Williams. That seems like a fair trade.

According to rotoworld, the Lions are interested in 6'3" 308 lb DT Rocky Bernard.
