In response to a report regarding rumors that the termination of Lions CEO Matt Millen was staged to placate fans and that Millen was still calling the shots in exile, we’ve been told by multiple sources that Millen has no involvement whatsoever in the franchise.
As mentioned last month in a USA Today feature regarding NFL Films, Millen has been hanging out the Mount Laurel, New Jersey mecca of pro football.
And if Millen is involved in any activities remotely related to the running of the Detroit Lions, he’s doing a very good job of keeping such information concealed from the various recognizable names of NFL media figures who routinely are working there.
Apart from the fact that Millen has been doing and/or saying nothing at NFL Films to indicate any lingering interest and/or involvement in the Lions franchise, we’ve been told that the rumors of lingering influence and/or consulting are simply wrong.
