A text I sent to TransientTexan and a handful of other buddies when I saw ESPN report that the Lions agreed to terms with Matthew Stafford earlier tonight:
Stafford gets almost $42 mil guaranteed from Detroit. I'd shoot myself in the face twice if I was a Lions fan right now.
And with that, the 2009 NFL Draft is off and running. As urged here, share your thoughts, observations, blasts, and kudos in the Comments below. It's Christmas in April, people. Let us all bask in its warming glow.
