- Ndamukong Suh met new Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell on Wednesday. Later, after Caldwell held his introductory press conference, Lions president Tom Lewand talked about Suh's contract, which will make him a free agent after next season.

- Before coming to Detroit, new Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin coached for three different NFL teams (Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens), and he went to the Super Bowl with all of them. Hopefully that's a sign of things to come with him joining the Lions.
- The Lions really, really struggled with drops in 2013.
