What did Robinson do/not do to get in the Rams' doghouse?

Calvin Johnson on the bitter train again this week. I guess the Lips forced him to sign that major extension instead of becoming a free agent

Well I mean how bad does it make a franchise look that two once in a generation talents walked away because their team sucked so bad?

I agree the Lions are worthless. And completely inept. Calvin could have became a free agent and left though. That's all I'm saying

As usual in sports it's about the $$.

He's been pissy over the bonus return.

Also agree. He wanted to keep the money, he should have finished the contract. Again that's on him.

I agree with that part, BUT, why not reactivate his contract and trade him? You'll only get a draft pick or two, but it's better than just letting it sit there.

Can you trade a contract that is retired? It's not counting against the cap is it?

The Lions have invited Calvin Johnson to training camp.  

July 17 (UPI) -- Detroit Lions president Ron Wood has invited Calvin Johnson to join the team at training camp next month in Allen Park, Mich.

He revealed the news of his invitation on Monday in an interview on WJR Radio.

"I did invite him out to training camp," Wood said Monday on WJR. "We'll see if he does that. Hopefully he shows up and he's a great player. We want to have him in the tent and not outside the tent."

Well, at least we are not the Redskins.

The Seahawks did it with Marshawn Lynch's contract. I think you just restore it as "active" since there was time left on the contract, and trade it away.

Yeah I'm not sure how all that works. But it seems like a move a well run franchise would make just to make the sign that they care about the players. So yeah the lions probably ain't gonna do it

A trip to Matthew Stafford's home helped integrate Michael Roberts to Lions

ALLEN PARK -- It was one of the first weeks of July, during the month-long wait for training camp, when Matthew Stafford came up with a plan.

He wanted some of his receivers at his place to condition and throw. It's something established quarterbacks sometimes do to get a passing game ready for the season, except Stafford's home was all the way down in Atlanta. And he was paying for the trip.

More praise for Zettel.

It's early, but Lions might have filled their pass-rush void

2. Another good day for Anthony Zettel: The second-year defensive end looks so much faster this year, particularly during one-on-one drills with the offensive line. His jump off the line of scrimmage, at least at this early juncture, looks to have improved dramatically, as has his overall speed. There was never a questioning of his athleticism -- after all, he has tackled dead trees, thrown a baseball 94 mph and participated in MMA training. But he seems to have found a way to channel that athleticism into football. He's the guy, perhaps more than any other nonrookie on the roster, that I'm curious to see in preseason games against other teams. He's worked a lot with the first-team defense with Ezekiel Ansah out, and if what he's flashed during camp translates against opponents, the Lions might have a shot at finding their third edge rusher.

"He's working at it all the time. He's trying to take care of all the little things, so we see some improvement already," Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. "So we'll see what happens when we get into ballgames. But he knows what he's doing. He has a good feel for it, and we expect to see obviously some improvement over last year, for certain."

There's a definite opening for a pass-rusher in the Lions defense, and it appears Zettel will get the first real chance at it.

Cutler's best year was under Gase when he was the Bears OC two years ago. I think he'll be fine in Miami.
