The Philadelphia Eagles, on Thursday morning, got the help they need at the cornerback by acquiring Darius Slay from the Lions. The Eagles sent a 2020 third-round pick and a fifth-round pick to the Detroit Lions, and agreed to a three-year, $50 million extension with $30 million guaranteed. The extension makes Slay the highest-paid cornerback by annual salary in the league, his $16.7 million per year is two million ahead of Byron Jones.

A 23-20 defeat puts a cap on a 3-12-1 season, one that started filled with optimism only to end with the third pick in the draft.
As for what the Lions should do with said third pick, we’ll inform you about that later. For now, here are the three things to look at from this game, one where both teams knew their fate.

Welcome back to the GPP/Tournament Plays article for Week 17. Let’s start by saying, any picks used or mentioned for cash games can be played in tournaments. I think that’s an important thing to know and can sometimes get confused whenever the two are mentioned separately. For that reason, I’ve tried to avoid mentioning my cash game plays for this article. Continue reading

Indeed it is. With one game left, Lions fans must feel like they are going through hell. Or, at least, compared to expectations at the start of the year. A 27-17 loss to the Denver Broncos has brought the Lions record to 3-11-1… which could also be a recipe to an alcoholic drink. Lions fans have probably consumed a lot of those this season. Plus, while playing Denver, Orange Crush could be a drink of choice.
