DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) The Detroit Lions have signed undrafted Richmond QB John Laub. Usually this wouldn’t be too big a story — since the Lions already have Matthew Stafford, Shaun Hill, Kellen Moore and Alex Carder on the team.

Why is this a story? John Laub is the cousin of the Lions former GM Matt Millen. On his bio from the Richmond football website it lists Laub as the cousin of former NFL star and former Lions GM Matt Millen.

Of course, most agree Laub has a very small chance of making the team. But what are the odds the Lions brought in a relative of Matt Millen?
