I predict on day 1 of the free agent period this summer, Nabby signs with Detroit.

I absolutely agree.  I don’t know that it’s 100% that he signs with Detroit, but if he does, I’d bet dollars to donuts that it will be for less than other teams offer him and that this…show of faith by Detroit will be at least part of the reason.
