Lions to Talk to Stafford, Smith Next?

According to the league-owned NFL Network, the Detroit Lions are expected to contact the representatives for Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford and Baylor left tackle Jason Smith early in the week.

Lions officials met over the weekend with the agents for Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.

The Lions, coming off the first 0-16 season in NFL history, have the top overall choice in the NFL draft Saturday and have indicated they will have discussions with several players. But it is widely believed within the league that the club will select Stafford and will do its best to complete a contract with him before the draft, as league rules permit.
