I guess with that 41.7 million guaranteed for Stafford, they have to cut corners elsewhere.
Proof that times are tough in Detroit:
Lions season-ticket holder Todd Taylor won a No. 34 Kevin Smith jersey over the weekend at the team’s NFL draft party at Ford Field.

The Lions appear to have “repurposed some old Kevin Jones jerseys” for the giveaway.
