Lions notes: Micheal Spurlock visits Chiefs

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at Micheal Spurlock, cap space, Brandon Pettigrew's signing bonus and more.

  • Micheal Spurlock, who had two stints with the Detroit Lions last season, visited the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday. Spurlock started out the 2013 season as the Lions' returner, but he later lost that job to Jeremy Ross. With Ross back in 2014, the Lions don't have any interest in re-signing Spurlock.

  • Rotoworld has the Lions listed as one of the teams with the least amount of cap space in the NFL right now. Lions president Tom Lewand doesn't seem too concerned about this, though. I'm guessing Lewand's point is that cap space can change over the course of the offseason, so it's not like it's set in stone right now. If the Lions get Ndamukong Suh a long-term deal, for example, they will free up some extra cap room.

  • This point about guaranteed money and contracts is worth reiterating again:
  • Dave Birkett reports that $1.5 million of Brandon Pettigrew's signing bonus won't actually be paid out until next March.

  • I like the sound of this:
  • Defensive tackle Henry Melton agreed to a deal with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday night.
