    Wrong. Some of our fans are delusional, just like any other team's fans. Some of us are levelheaded and realistic, just like any other team's fans. If you read back about twenty six pages, you'll see interspersed with the delusions of grandeur surrounding Calvin Johnson is quite a bit of talk concerning Cliff Avril. No groundbreaking news there, chief, but thanks for stopping by.

    I agree with lionsin2012... the most likely player that this rumor is about is Cliff Avril. The Lions are transitioning from a 3-4 to a 4-3 and Avril is a 3-4 OLB, so they have less need for his services, while the Dolphins are clearly lacking in OLB depth. If he could be had for a 4th, I would probably pull the trigger, although I would be hoping to get him for a 5th .

    Lions are not changing from a 3-4....they have been a 4-3 forever! have never been a 3-4. But do do a 4-4 set. But I agree its Avril. Lions looking for bigger downhill type De's. And trying to rid the team of Millen guys. Id take a 3rd for him possibly a 4th. Or Ted Ginn Str8 up.:hump:

    I thought the Lions have always played 4-3

    My apologies... I read it on a headline at Rotoworld last week... but when I went back to find it and post, i couldnt. I clearly may be mistaken about the scheme they run, but Avril is still a better fit as a 3-4 OLB than a 4-3 DE.

    Avril for Merling makes the most sense. Merling has starter potential in a 4-3 IMO.

    Sammie Lee Hill could be in the mix (see "Lions draft Suh"), which could involve another phin player and/or picks.

    The Lions could have some interest in Ronnie, whom I'm actually hoping is re-signed, but would they have any interest in Ginn?

    Anyway, a few players could be involved, but C. Johnson isn't likely to be one of them.

    There's a rumor about a trade being imminent involving the San Diego Chargers and Detroit Lions. The Lions would be getting Antonio Cromartie but that's the only name I've heard involved. We know the Chargers want a premium tailback. Could there be a three-way deal in the works that sends Cromartie to the Lions, Ronnie Brown to the Chargers, and Calvin Johnson to the Dolphins? Short answer, probably not. But, it's nice to dream up these things.

    Would love it but Brown is not in the class of either of the other players and really dont think the Chargers want another back of Brown's age coming off another injured season, they already have been burned by this recently.
