Finally, two hours into the free agent period, a signing! The Lions have added Nate Burleson from the Seahawks, according to Adam Caplan. Adam Schefter says it's a five-year deal; John Clayton says it's for $25 million, with $11 million guaranteed.
UPDATE FRIDAY 11am EST: The Lions have also apparently signed defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch to a four-year, $26 million deal. Not sure how much guaranteed money is in that yet. Vanden Bosch will play on a completely revamped defensive line that now features Corey Williams and, we assume, either Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy, along with holdover Cliff Avril. Jim Schwartz apparently pulled the Rex Ryan thing, showing up at Vanden Bosch's door at midnight. Now I know why he couldn't return my phone call yesterday! -- Aaron Schatz

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
