The Detroit Lions signed undrafted Richmond quarterback John Laub to a contract on Tuesday, according to the school's website. This news normally would not be post-worthy, except for one line in Laub's bio.
"His cousin is former NFL star and former Detroit Lions president and CEO Matt Millen."
We wish Laub all the best in an uphill battle to beat out Kellen Moore for the No. 3 quarterback job, but we doubt that Lions fans feel as generous about this omen. This would be like the New York Jets signing Vernon Gholston's brother or the San Diego Chargers reaching agreement with Ryan Leaf's nephew.
