If you put the pieces together, I think he's done. The "I love Detroit" comment, taking the ball off the field, etc...

He has earned over $113M from the Lions...I wouldn't say he is suffering!

Slightly unrelated

The Lions currently have two players in the top 8 individual cap hits for 2016. CJ at $24MM and Stafford at $22.5MM...$46.5MM wrapped up in two players. A nice challenge for the new GM.

Money wise, no I don't feel bad for him. But some of these guys truly want to win, and I think Calvin was one of those.

The worse I saw on that list, RG3 - over 16m.

The Lions handed him a shit ton of money to stick around, no home town discount. If he really wanted to win, he wouldn't have re-signed with this dumpster fire of an organization. He could've taken less and gone to any winning organization.
