    [Yahoo! Sports] OT Backus agrees to 6-year deal with Lions (AP)

    Jeff Backus closed on a house in suburban Detroit early Thursday afternoon, and several hours later, the offensive tackle agreed to terms with the Lions on a six-year contract with $15.5 million guaranteed. "I'm very appreciative to the Lions and the Ford family for getting this done," Backus told The Associated Press.

    Writer Bob Guina for Lionbacker.com does a straight forward report on the Lions Oline from last year to now. Puts blame on Oline coach Morris.
    Blames Demulling for Backus and Raiola problems.
    Should be a lot better this year even though Kosier went to Dallas.
