A visit to FireMillen.com “just to check” didn’t produce a new Lions coach, but it did produce a link to news that Detroit Lions tight end Charlie Sanders (#88) will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Sanders caught 336 passes for 4,817 yards and 31 TDs in 10 seasons with the Detroit Lions. He was voted to seven Pro Bowls and named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1970s.
