    Ebron signed

    Lions sign 1st-round pick Eric Ebron
    Jun 13 2014, 10:45 AMMichael Amato
    The Detroit Lions signed first-round pick Eric Ebron to a contract on Friday, the tight end announced.

    The Lions made Ebron the 10th-overall pick in last month's draft and he will now give quarterback Matthew Stafford another weapon to work with.

    Ebron's deal is like that of all first-round picks, for four years with a team option for a fifth.

    All rookies are signed now IIRC. Good, now focus on developing and molding a playoff contender. Yeah I imagine cutting Houston is the reason why we could sign Ebron.

    Was definitely the houston cut... I didnt see it happening at the time me and you were arguing about it but once i seen his demeanor after his surgery i was quite sure he would either be cut or on the shelf all year.h

    Makes sense tho, He hasent been to a single practice, Ill assume hes had a playbook but he's going to be so far behind the learning curve when he is finally healthy that he will prolly be more of a hindrance to the defense than help

    I have never liked Houston. Glad he is out of the picture so we can work through the other DBs. I think there could be some serviceable players on the roster but we need to throw them into the fire to see who will pan out. Cutting Houston helps that process I believe.

    Yea i was really hoping he would come back this year healthy and prove last year was due to injurys and get back to playing at the level he did in 12, Lets hope the young guys just needed a better mentor/coach

    I really think that is the case. Its amazing how one coach could change an entire teams fortune. Like harbaugh for example. That may or may not be Caldwell only time will tell.

    I don't know it just seems like Caldwell is taking care of some simple off the field things showing you he has the attention for detail. Then you look at what they are doing with Stafford and how they run their practice and I just cannot help but think that what he is doing is good enough to make a difference in the close games especially down the road.

    Good point. Maybe we'll start winning some of those close ones now.

    I don't get why those teams don't go out and sign the few remaining decent vets out there and try to improve their teams. I'd be pissed if the Lions had $28 mil and stood pat.

    I know, I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure the Jags could benefit from signing a player like Flowers, so why not sign him? Or like you said, any other vets still available?
