Dave Birkett of the Oakland Press has the scoop: the Stafford deal is done, and Lewand's getting the final sign-off right now: http://tinyurl.com/ck5g95
Much, much, much more on this later.
UPDATE: Killer is reporting that the Lions are officially denying this story.
Uh, what? Did the Lions leak the story to Birkett and then tell Kowalski it isn't true?? I'm offically stunned at this point.
UPDATE UPDATE: Birk sez: "Update at 3:20 p.m.: Keenist finally texted me a back a few minutes ago saying my report is "untrue." But the Lions still haven't returned my calls and I don't know what exactly is being denied. Lewand and Ford did meet today and my sources say a deal is "really close." When I have more, I'll let you know."
. . . yeah, still completely stunned.
