- On Wednesday night at the Lions' charity bocce ball tournament, Jim Schwartz was asked about Titus Young's status. Young was absent from the Detroit Lions' OTAs earlier in the week after allegedly sucker punching Louis Delmas last week. Right now, it's unclear when Young will be back, and it's going to remain unclear until he actually returns, because Schwartz basically declined to comment on the situation.
- Schwartz recently said that the Lions didn't sign Kellen Moore to "help out the meeting room," but rather because they want him to "develop as a player" and "help out on the field."
- Nate Burleson and Stephen Tulloch will square off as captains of opposing teams in a charity softball game on June 9 in Dearborn.
- The NFLPA filed a collusion complaint against the NFL on Wednesday over there allegedly being a "secret" salary cap in 2010, which was officially an uncapped year. Just like last year, it appears that the union and league are headed to court. Luckily, there isn't a lockout this time around.
- The Seattle Seahawks are the latest team to turn down Hard Knocks. Two things are clear: 1) HBO really wants a team other than the Jacksonville Jaguars to be on the show; and 2) the Jaguars seem to be the only team that actually does want to be on the show as of right now. What does this mean? The Jaguars will likely end up being the choice once HBO makes its way through asking and getting turned down by the other 31 teams.
- On a related note, check out Big Cat Country's Hard Knocks "application" for the Jaguars. It is absolutely hilarious.
