One of the last hurdles in the way of a new CBA appears to be settling with the plaintiffs of Brady vs. the NFL. While most of the players involved don't have much of a reason to ask for special treatment, a pair of players embittered by the franchise tag are speaking up. Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson are demanding to either become unrestricted free agents or be compensated a cool $10 million for their troubles landing a long-term deal with the Patriots and Chargers, respectively.

Is Detroit's defense good enough to make it a legitimate NFC contender? It sure looked that way when the Lions came down to New Orleans and held Drew Brees to 13 points.
