Florio is 100% convinced the Lions are taking Fields. Literally said it IS happening, if Fields is still there.
First he made fun of Spielman’s title, saying he was assistant to the traveling equipment manager or something, then said he was an alpha, that he has a lot of juice, and that his OSU connections are too strong to pass on Fields.
This take needs to be revisited on draft day.
Also, Simms basically staked his career on Mac Jones to SanFran.
Mike Florio is the pinnacle of journalistic integrity, I find his articles to be very insightful with a deep understanding on the game of football. When I think of the most respected “sports journalist” in the business, Florio is at the top.
(…just lobbing a softball up if anyone wants to take a swing…wink, wink to the Master of the Den)
I don’t think it’s a CRAZY stretch either, but he’s saying it’s a done deal.
I find it annoying he has two Lions takes … first he says something stupid about kneecaps, and then bitches about Spielman being in the front office. Not one word about our coaching hires. Then he’ll spend 45 minutes on how amazing the Jets off-season has been.
The guy talks the NFL for a living, and he can’t get past kneecap and Spielman. Maybe, maaayyybe, he’ll mention how LA had to give us a 1st and a 3rd to take on the shitty, awful contract of reject QB Jared Goof.
Florios reaching new levels of douchery on a daily basis.
Hey don’t shoot the messenger, man. I wasn’t the one who suggested it. I just see how bad you want the guy and I can only imagine the roller coaster you’d be on if they drafted him and then shipped him off to NE or something
