As sports cities go Detroit is a rather lucky. They have a team in all four major sports and each with a fairly rich history. Of course most fans don’t really care what a team did in the 20’s and 30’s so even just looking at the past 30 years it has been good to be a Detroit sports fan. They have seen their Tigers win one world series while playing for a second. The Pistons have played in five championship rounds winning three of them and the Red Wings have played for the Stanley cup six times winning it four times.
Of course not everything is perfect as the Lions are coming off one of the worst decades any team in any sports has had to go through. However if you ask your grandparents, there was actually a time when the Lions were a dominant team.
Even with the numerous championships not everything goes right for the Detroit teams. As seen by the list, there have been several bad contracts. Luckily for Detroit fans most of these contracts are in the past.
This list covers free agents that were brought here and not players that resigned. That way we can save the nightmare of the Higginson, Robertson and Easley contracts for another list. Here are the 12 worst Free Agent contracts in Detroit Sports History.
