League-wide, the pace of signings has been slow, which is typical. The Lions' most difficult negotiations will be with their first-round pick, wide receiver Calvin Johnson . He was drafted second overall, and indications are agent Bus Cook -- whose stable of clients includes Packers quarterback Brett Favre -- will ask for a deal that includes close to $30 million in guaranteed money.

A first round receiver in Detroit: He better get it, because he won't be in the league with "star" clout very long...
