It's that time of year again. Speculation season has begun!
The time between the NFL Scouting Combine and the beginning of free agency is often a period rife with rumors. It's a time where football fans are all fired up, but there's nothing really going on.
Idle time leads to idle speculation. Be it agents planting seeds with willing media stooges, radio hosts and bloggers throwing spaghetti at the wall to their audiences or simply folks trying to put one and one together, rumors often fly.
This year has been a little more subdued for the Detroit Lions in the rumor mill. Some of that is attributable to the fact the team had very little cap room before the recent bump and it just wasn't seen as a potential buyer for anyone but the lowest tier of free agents.
Still, there is chatter surrounding the Lions worth exploring. Is it fact or fiction? While it's too early to be certain, here is an early guide on the validity of the speculation out there.
