Notes: ESPN calls Lions 2nd-most improved team in free agency

On paper, the Lions are ‘winning’ free agency.

  • “Winning” free agency is always a precarious title. Rarely do the teams that spend the most money and make the most splashes in free agency see any sort of long-term success.

  • First the Boston Globe, now The Simpsons. Rough week for Lions fans in American culture:

  • Here’s a pretty neat rundown of the types of running plays used by each team:
