Detroit signs wide receiver Calvin Johnson to an eight year $132 million extension through 2019. The contract makes Johnson the highest paid receiver in league history.

Denver signs Peyton Manning to a five year $96 million contract. At least $58 million is guaranteed money with the rest contingent on passing another physical next year. Tim Tebow is likely on his way since there are questions about his accuracy and his ability to run an NFL offense.

Tebow off to the Jets.

And in even bigger news: Sean Payton suspended for a year for his involvement in a bounty program that rewarded defensive players for injuring oponents:

Biggest suspension of a head coach in NFL history. :blink:

It was a foregone conclusion Tebow would be on his way out of Denver since he's actually not an NFL quarterback. As for Sean Peyton, do the Saints make the playoffs or do they become the Aints? For Drew Brees to say he didn't know anything about the bounty program would be laughable.

The NFL draft has begun and now a formality, Andrew Luck from Standford to Indianapolis and Robert Griffin III to Washington. Detroit's first pick is Riley Reiff from Iowa who is considered a better pass blocker than a run blocker. They'll need more linemen, epecially those who also run block so Stafford isn't running for his life half the time.

Detroit addresses its needs on defense by selected three defensive backs, two linebackers, and a defensive end. A question mark is wide receiver Ryan Broyles out of Oklahoma State who has had knee problems. One sportswriter grades the Lions draft a C. We'll see how it works out.

Minnesota running Caleb King was arrested for assautling a 22 year old man at a birthday by throwing him headfirst into the ground and continuously punching. The result was skull and facial fractures and cuts that need 50 stitches to close. King also skipped out of a court appearance for speeding ticket while at Georgia and was declare academically ineligible during his final year. The Vikings front office says it is aware of the latest situation and is investigating.
