On Monday in a story about the trade market, I mentioned that the moves Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew made in the 2010 offseason resulted in the coining of a term based around his last name. It's a term that can be used in multiple ways to help describe one team gaining more than they gave up in a deal, whether it's signing a player, trading for a player or trading draft picks. It's used in a joking way, of course, but there is some merit behind it based on what Mayhew has accomplished in a few short years at the helm of the Lions.
For his latest video for SB Nation and Pride of Detroit, Jerry Mallory took a look at the idea of "getting Mayhewed" and discussed its origins. Check it out:
I have to agree with Jerry. As good as Mayhew has been the last few years, I also believe that the best is yet to come.
