Lions expect to be players
By AJ Mass
The 2013 Detroit Lions will likely bear little resemblance to the team that took the field in 2012. After cutting several starters, including the much-maligned Titus Young, the team sits $5 million under the cap for the upcoming season.
That number could well increase should the team be able to negotiate a restructuring deal with quarter Matthew Stafford, and it is in his best interest to do so. As the Detroit News reports, the offensive line could well see only left guard Rob Sims returning and with Jahvid Best's career in doubt, a running back - be it Reggie Bush or Danny Woodhead - is also high on the priority list.
As long as the team spends any money freed up by Stafford's "generosity" to help keep the quarterback upright, it is surely going to money well spent.
