Tuesday Notes: Lions' Tags to Go Unused This Offseason?

  • Martin Mayhew doesn't believe the Lions will use any tags this offseason to keep free agents in Detroit.  According to Tom Kowalski, the Lions do want to bring back the likes of Larry Foote, William James, Jon Jansen, Casey FitzSimmons, and Will Heller.  None of them are simply big enough names to use a tag on, though.
  • Mayhew is excited over the fact that this year's junior class for the draft is one of the deepest in quite some time.
  • Jim Schwartz talked a little bit about how important it is to get a rush from the defensive tackle position and how that can make the entire defense better.
  • John Niyo has a list of the local players who have been invited to the NFL Combine later this month in Indianapolis.  The full list of invites can be found here.
  • More pictures of Matthew Stafford have ended up on Deadspin, although I don't really know why these latest ones are even worth posting considering they're just regular pictures of him with his girlfriend.
  • Want Barry Sanders to come to your house and watch the Super Bowl with you?  Well, look no further than eBay, where there is an auction that will make that possible.  The proceeds of the auction will go to the Jimmy V Foundation.
  • A few people from SB Nation are in Miami for the Super Bowl.
  • The ratings for the Pro Bowl went up 40% this year, making it the most watched edition of the game in a decade.  I think it's safe to say it will continue to be the week before the Super Bowl in the future.
  • Mike Martz is headed to Chicago to be the Bears' offensive coordinator.  That should be interesting to watch.
