I think what this shows is that Detroit is no longer a top free agent destination...and outside of drafting well, thats their bread and butter...

Once players start saying no to Detroit, it will become more and more, and this team will start to struggle...I mean they have been a playoff team for like 20 something freaken years, its time for them to hit the bottom for a few seasons....and though I think they will still be formidable, and they have some solid youngsters, this team is in a complete turn around process before our eyes...
