It appears the Lions will definitely sign another Free Agent Linebacker, but which LB that is remains to be seen. Nick Barnett is flying into Detroit on Sunday to meet with the Lions, and could sign a contract. It appears to be between Nick Barnett and Stephen Tulloch. Who would you rather see in a Lions uniform this season .. Barnett or Tulloch? I think both bring a unique dimension to the team. Tulloch played in Shwartz system, and knows the playbook. On the other hand, Barnett has played in the NFC North his entire career, and is familiar with all of the teams ... especially Green Bay. If I had to choose I would say Barnett ... heck .. sign them both.
