not much you can do when a player just gives up, they were trying to build a team, wasn't easy as the NFCE was the woodshed back then..
Dood, he retired when he no longer had passion to play for a terrible organization and Megatron is headed down the same path. They were trying to build a team yet they got rid of everyone? Jerry Ball, Lomas Brown, Chris Spielman, Bennie Blades and Kevin Glover. They had no QB as Charlie Batch a rookie was about to be the guy. Their is no such thing as retiring early when the Lions wouldn't trade him. What are your choices? The Dolphins supposedly wanted Barry but the Lions said they would rather let him retire than get any type of compensation. They Lions could have gotten draft picks and they told teams "no". Seriously guy just stop. And by the way, the Lions never played in the NFC East and to this day still don't, it was the NFC Central back then.
