I know you all have heard the rumors. I almost didn't want to mention it for fear of jinxing it. Ty Law is in town and the Lions are extremely interested. This is the move that will put the Lions over the top. Law wants money (a lot). Millen has money (some). I would pay $200 out of my own pocket to get the Lions to sign Law. Seriously, if I'm the difference in signing Ty Law, send me a bill, and I'll pay it.
He would immediately become the best Lions' cornerback since I've been alive.
I know the Lions get a lot of flack for never having a franchise quarterback, but the worst position for the Lions franchise in the last three decades has been at cornerback (at least until Dre Bly ended the suffering two years ago). If you don't believe me, re-watch the '91 NFC championship game. Or make a call over to Ford Field and ask them about Sterling Sharpe. If that doesn't convince you, check out how many times the Lions have beaten the Vikings in the last eight years (yep, Randy Moss). Or check out the Lions' pro bowlers since 1978 and let me know what you find in terms of cornerbacks from Detroit. If anything, it'll make you appreciate Dre Bly a little more.
One of the secrets to success in the NFL is to sign a player coming off an injury for less than fair market value. I have no doubts that Law will once again become one of the top 10 corners in the league. This is the time to get it done. In Millen I trust.
