Monday Notes: Lions Agree to One-Year Deal with Loper

  • Offensive lineman Daniel Loper agreed to a one-year deal with the Lions on Friday.  Loper visited Detroit earlier in the week but left town without a deal.  He was scheduled to visit Atlanta on Friday but decided to agree to a deal with the Lions instead.  It is expected that Loper will compete for a starting spot at left guard, though he more than likely will be a backup at left tackle and guard as well.
  • According to ProFootballWeekly, the Lions were initially offered safety Roy Williams in exchange for Jon Kitna before ultimately receiving cornerback Anthony Henry.  I guess we probably shouldn't expect them to go after Williams considering they already had a chance to get him once before and passed.
  • Could the Curse of Bobby Layne not actually exist?
  • The Detroit News announced the winner of their Lions logo contest.  Matt Zelley, who posted his version of a new Lions logo on Pride of Detroit, came in second-place.
  • Apparently there are rumors that the electronic timing malfunctioned for some 40-yard dashes at the combine.  I remember they were having issues with it once when I was watching coverage, so this doesn't surprise me one bit.
  • Dave Birkett ran down a list of the Lions' top five draft needs.
  • Nick Schuyler was released from the hospital on Thursday and attended a memorial for William Bleakley on Saturday.
  • Despite being an NFL player, Corey Smith never took anything in life for granted.
  • Kevin Jones agreed to a two-year deal with the Bears on Friday.
  • J.T. O'Sullivan signed with the Bengals last week.
  • Terrell Owens signed a one-year, $6.5 million deal with the Bills on Saturday afternoon.
