Re: Lions signings for 2020

In the age of social media, the whole world can see when a player tells his friends that he has signed a pro contract. For some, that may be the highlight of their careers. The Lions list 101 players on their online roster, including at least one non-counter (RB Andrew Pocrnik of the Langley Rams) but not including Harper and anyone else who might have signed a contract recently. They're allowed to have 100 players plus draft picks and other non counters under contract up to the end of rookie camp, 85 plus non counters for the first three days of main camp and 75 plus non counters for the duration of camp. With the prospect of a shortened 2020 camp and season (if any at all), teams probably won't even try to bring long shots across the border. They won't want to waste money and reps on players with little chance of making the team.Gridiron Ernie wrote: ↑Thu Apr 02, 2020 6:06 pmI had to chuckle over this -- newly signed CB Sean Harper Jr. (Washington State) nicely photo-shopped into a Lions uni. (I suspect Chris Rainey has dibbs on jersey #2 though!) Harper's confidently tweeted this, and here's the 3DownN link, however I've not seen a mention officially from the Lions. https://3downnation.com/2020/04/02/form ... b-c-lions/ I know these things need to be done, i.e. signing for the future. But in this state of uncertainty it all sort of rings hollow. But another DB for our secondary is always welcome, whenever things eventually move forward. Realistically I'm really not thinking in terms of 2020. I'm hopefully looking ahead to 2021.
