Detroit may have gambled with their first- (Ziggy Ansah) and second-round (Darius Slay) selections, but by addressing a significant concern with a relative sure thing in SEC-standout Larry Warford in the third round, the Lions may regain their roar in 2013.
The Detroit Lions agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with veteran tackle Corey Hilliard on Friday, according to ESPN. The re-signing could signal the departure of starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus. If Cherilus does not return to Detroit, Hilliard could compete with Jason Fox for the starting spot.
There's a lot on the line when the Lions face the Falcons on Saturday night at Ford Field. Detroit is playing for pride, and to prove that Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Cardinals wasn't an accurate representation of its talent.
