Well the funny thing is if you go to the detroit lions forum [Link]- http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?t=333830 : Most of their fans actually wanted Ken Lucas and were sad they did not get him. That cracks me off LMAO!!!

What do you find humorous? Ken is a very good veteran corner, I'm sure they'd be thrilled to have him as would many teams.

And you say Lucas sucks.... what team have you been watching. Marshall is a good nickel, but no way a cover corner, a slightly taller Manning Jr.

In every thread about the CBs there should be this statement: CHAMP BAILEY LOOKS LIKE poo TOO WHEN HE HAS LITTLE TO NO PASS RUSH IN FRONT OF HIM. I will grant you that Luc seemed to have his best year in Carolina in 2005, but I don't think he is as bad as some people think he is at all.

Lucas was the only one got beat this year. accept for the rookie Godfrey because Marshall doesn't get enough reps. You will just have to wait and see.

To the original question, it would have been Detroit that technically killed the deal. I don't think he could refuse a trade, but he can refuse to rework his deal, which would have been mandatory for the deal to make sense for Detroit. If Lucas wasn't going to agree to redo a deal with them in a more cap and financially friendly way, they weren't going to give up a pick for him.

I don't think Lucas did anything wrong. He's under no obligation to redo his contract. That might well mean that he gets cut by us, but at that point, he's going to wind up being able to sign with who he wants.

you mean teams don't want to trade for players who state they don't want to play there?

shocking!

Not every team has the luxury of forcing their athletes to play. ;)

In every thread about the CBs there should be this statement: CHAMP BAILEY LOOKS LIKE sh*t TOO WHEN HE HAS LITTLE TO NO PASS RUSH IN FRONT OF HIM. I will grant you that Luc seemed to have his best year in Carolina in 2005, but I don't think he is as bad as some people think he is at all.

Thank you. I remember it wasn't long ago at all--perhaps even up until the midpoint of last season--that many argued Lucas was our best corner. It's amazing what half a season can do.

I would like to see if we can sure up our defensive line and pass rush before sending Lucas packing, especially with a new defensive coordinator coming in. I think it will be much easier to acquire some good guys for the defensive line this year--whether through the draft or free agency--than it will to find a cornerback that is leaps and bounds over Lucas, and for the same price. He's not the best in the league and he's aging, but I think with some pressure from the front four he can get it done.
