Lions notes: Jim Caldwell's contract, rave reviews for Joe Lombardi, more

Duane Burleson

Lions notes looks at Jim Caldwell's contract, the rave reviews offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi has been getting and much more.

  • The financial details of Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell's contract have leaked out:
  • Several people had some really positive things to say about new Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi on Tuesday. Take a look: MLive has a recap of more of the reaction to the Lions' decision to hire Lombardi.

  • New Orleans Saints tight ends coach Terry Malone had this to say about what Lombardi's offense will look like in Detroit: I like the sound of that.

  • Dave Birkett reports that the Lions were scheduled to interview former Tennessee Titans secondary coach Brett Maxie for their secondary coach job on Tuesday night. (On a related note, the Cincinnati Bengals hired Vance Joseph as their defensive backs coach. Joseph was believed to be a candidate for the Lions' secondary coach job.)

  • The first ever Pro Bowl draft was on Tuesday night, and Ndamukong Suh was apparently the first pick.
  • This week's ESPN The Magazine features Calvin Johnson and Eminem on the cover:
  • Scott Linehan is one of four candidates to replace Caldwell as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator.

  • The Miami Dolphins apparently didn't send any coaches to the Senior Bowl. Good luck with that, Miami.
