Okay, maybe I got that wrong

Back in May, after Jeff Backus signed a one-year contract with the Lions, I figured the guy just wanted to get the hell out of Detroit, and if he had to play here one more year to earn his unrestricted free agency, and a ticket out of football purgatory, then so be it.

Well, I misread the situation pretty badly, as Backus signed a six-year deal to stay in Detroit yesterday. So either he thought staying here was worth it, or he and his agent figured out he wouldn't get $15.5 million in guaranteed money from any other team besides the Lions.

Clearly, Matt Millen just can't get over his first - draft pick, that is.
