It’s free agency week and the PODcast is ready for it. Things are already happening, Antonio Brown is taking his talents to Oakland/Las Vegas. The Lions are signing wide receivers older than me. The legal tampering period starts at Noon on Monday, and the PODcast crew is ready to take it on.

This week, Hamza and Jeremy play a round of “Price is Right” predicting. What will the Lions do? How would we divvy up their cap space? How much is too much for each free agent target? We answer those questions and much, much more on this week’s episode.
