Thursday Notes: Lions "In the Mix" for Chester Pitts?

  • Jim Schwartz is impressed with how far Caleb Campbell has already come considering he hasn't played football in a couple years and is learning a new position.
  • Campbell expects to be relieved of active duty on July 16.  Until then he will be working towards completing courses to graduate from his officer's training course, but none of that will prevent him from participating in any of the upcoming OTAs or the minicamp next month.
  • Free agent guard Chester Pitts claims the Lions are "still in the mix" for his services.  Pitts isn't fully recovered from his injury yet, but the Eagles and Vikings apparently want to work him out.  If the Lions were to suddenly show interest in him again and decide to bring him in, Pitts would be nothing more than depth.  I really only think that would happen if Rob Sims or Stephen Peterman went down with an injury, though.  Although depth at guard isn't great, the Lions are set with Sims and Peterman as starters, so I don't believe there's a ton of interest in signing someone like Pitts at this point in time.
  • If the overtime proposal that was previously approved for the playoffs is voted on for the regular season at next week's owners meetings, Tom Kowalski reports that the Lions will vote for it.  I like the new rule in theory, but for it to truly be a good thing I think it's necessary for it to be in effect for the regular season as well as the playoffs.
