Schefter: Nate Burleson Signs With Detroit

Update: John Clayton is reporting that Detroit will pay Nate Burleson $25 million over 5 years with $11 million guaranteed. I'm not going to grip over losing Nate, but Seattle could have matched that pretty easily. Burleson has his warts, but he will be much harder to replace than Olindo Mare.

Via his Twitter

No matter how many times I do that, I don't think I'll ever get used to citing someone's twitter account in a front page post.

No word yet on how much Detroit is paying, but the reported length of the contract is five years. Nate wasn't the greatest receiver the Seahawks have ever had, but as John pointed out the Seahawks are a team that could use talent at receiver. It would have been nice to retain his services.
