ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have signed offensive tackle Pierce Burton.
The Detroit Lions have begun a $100 million renovation to spruce up Ford Field, a project that’s scheduled to be completed before next season starts. Team president Rod Wood says the improvements will make the facility ready to host another Super Bowl. Pittsburgh beat Seattle to win a Super Bowl at Ford Field in February 2006.
Others were allowed to leave via free agency. There are players who suffered with losing teams like the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams, or Detroit Lions and were given an NFL pardon. An NFL player makes a good salary, it’s a major accomplishment to be on any of the 32 teams, but there’s a reality attached to playing on a bad team.
