Big names and big bucks make headlines in free agency, but Pete Prisco says it's little-known, high-value players like CB Greg Toler who can make a huge impact. He runs down the top under-the-radar guys.
It's been over two years since Lions DT Jimmy Saddler-McQueen played in the only game of his NFL career, but he could get the chance to double that total Sunday against the Bears thanks to another D-line injury for Detroit.
When Lions' KR Stefan Logan took a knee at his own 4-yard line on a punt that followed a safety late in Detroit's Week 16 loss to Atlanta, referee Gene Steratore told the Ford Field crowd that Logan had surrendered himself on the return. As it turns out, Logan didn't just surrender himself on the play. He also surrendered his job.
The Lions' current five-game losing streak eliminated them from playoff contention, leaving the opportunity to build momentum for the 2013 season as the team's sole focus over their last three games. To win, Detroit must correct key issues that have plagued the team in recent weeks.
