Financially, it makes sense for the Lions to keep their options open. Also, we know that the NFL stands for Not For Long and even the guy that most consider the best player in the league regardless of position can be on the chopping block if the money gets too big.
Still this would be a jarring thing to see happen and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Lions come out with a denial.
