As NetRat predicted, a majority of the Lions' draft picks signed today -- which means that all but Cherilus and Dizon are under contract. Now that those picks below them have signed, and other 1st and 2nd have set the market, look for a quick deal to get done for both -- my gut says they are there in time for the first practice Thursday.
I've had to eat crow before, so if one of them is inane enough to stage a holdout, I'll eat it fully in disgust. They have a chance to prove the off-field stuff will not distract them, and that they do care about being on the team. There is only so much money, and holding out would only hurt them, and the team -- plain and simple.
